Bombers Sweep Wings And Have Won 3 In A Row

It was a gutsy effort by the Flin Flon Bombers who keep finding ways to win games despite missing some key offensive stars.


The Bombers kept up their winning ways with a weekend sweep of the much improved Weyburn Red Wings.


Weyburn made their way to the Whitney Forum this past weekend 6-2-2 in their last 10 and had beaten the Bombers in their last meeting 4 to 1 back on February the 9th.


Flin Flon built up a 3 to 0 lead on Friday and hung on for a 4 to 3 win.


Joey Lies, Alexi Sylvestre and Cory King all found the back of the net. Zach Cain got the game winner midway through the final period after Weyburn fought back to tie it at 3.


The Bombers carried the momentum into Saturday and this time they knocked off the Wings 5 to 3.


Ethan Mercer seeled it with an empty netter with just over a minute remaining in regulation.


Once again the Bombers got some timely secondary scoring from Brock Mueller who netted his second, Barron Stibbe his second , Liam Bridger his 9th and Kylynn Olafson got his third on the powerplay.


With a lot of big names out, the Bombers are getting someone different each night stepping up and scoring some big goals.


Harmon Laser Hume has been doing his job and stopped 21 shots last night for his 26th win  of the season.


Flin Flon is on quite the roll in February and improve to 8-2 in the month and also picked up their 20th home win of the year last night.


Overall, the Bombers are 34-13-2-1 and are once again tied with the Humboldt Broncos for second overall, but the Broncos do have a game in hand.


These two teams will meet in a big showdown this Wednesday at the Elgar Petersen Arena. The Bombers will also play in Yorkton on Tuesday.


Head Coach and GM, Mike Reagan mentioned on the CFAR Post Game Show last night that he hopes his team doesn't over look the Terriers on Tuesday.


The Bombers have had some trouble with Yorkton this season and the Terriers have already beaten them twice.


We will have both these road games on 102.9 CFAR and including the Great North GM Coach's Show from Yorkton at 6:40pm on Tuesday night.

MBCI Sweep JV Basketball Zones

JV Basketball Zones took place in Flin Flon and Cranberry this past weekend.


The Girls games were played in Flin Flon.


The Hapnot Queens went 2-2 with wins against OCN and Norway House. They lost to MBCI and Cross Lake and finshed third.


MBCI out of the Pas won the Zone beating Cross Lake 32 to 28 in the final.


The Boys games were played in Cranberry


The Hapnot Kings went 0-3 with losses against Cranberry, Cross Lake and MBCI.


Once again it was MBCI out of the Pas taking the Boy's Final 65 to 45 over Frontier out  of Cranberry.

Wild Upset Capitals Move On To Next Round

The U-15 Female Norman Wild have upset the Central Plains Capitals and are moving on to the second round of the playoffs.


All three games were played in Portage this past weekend.


The Capitals took the first game handilly 8 to 0 on Friday but the Wild rebounded in a big way.


They took Saturday's game 5 to 4 and won the tiebreaker this afternoon by a score of 3 to 2.


Flin Flon's Bailey Schwartz was fantastik in making over 70 saves in the two games and helping her team get to the next round.


Norman will now move on to face the Brandon Wheat Kings and dates have not been finalized.



Bombers Clash With Wings This Weekend

Only 8 games remain in the regular season and this could go down as one of the biggest weekends heading down the stretch.


The Flin Flon Bombers will welcome the Weyburn Red Wings to town for a pair of games including a 7:30 faceoff tonight.


The Bombers limp into tonight's crucial game with 6 regulars out of their line-up including their top 4 scorers in Cole Duperreault, Jeremi Tremblay, Jaeden Mercier and Jacob Vockler.


They have also lost the services of Matt Egan and Cole Tanchuk. Rumour has it that Tanchuk is close to returning.


Flin Flon did find a way to rally for a big win in Nipawin on Tuesday night as Noah Houle and Alexi Sylvestre had big nights with a pair of goals each.


Weyburn comes to town as one of the most improved teams in the league in the second half and are 6-2-2 in their last 10.


They are not your typical celler dwellers any more and I believe if they had their current roster they have now at the start of the season, they would run away with their division.


The Wings can score and have a very dangerous first line in Tyler Morgan, Ty Mason and Jakob Kalin. They have combined for 197 points as a unit.


It was after the Wings acquired Morgan from Laronge that they started to turn their season around.


Morgan has been great offensively and has been the big catalist on their powerplay adding 22 points with the extra attacker including 10 goals.


The Wings were also a little inconsistant in goal but seem to have found their man in 19 year old Dazza Mitchell out of Regina.


Mitchell is 15-9 to go along with a GAA of 2.86 and a save % of .912.


Flin Flon will have their work cut out for them but will be playing in the confines of the Whitney Forum where they have only lost 3 games in regulation all season.


Weyburn has also struggled on the road at 7-14-1 but have been better lately.


The Bombers are 8-2 in their last 10 and the Bombers have had the advantage in the head to head meetings winning two of three.


Weyburn did win the last game 4 to 1 at home back on February the 9th.


We will have tonight's game on Hockey TV, and back on radio and the net tomorrow.


Don't forget it all begins with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and drop of the puck at 7:30.

U-15 Wild Ready For The Playoffs

The U-15 Female Wild will start the playoffs tonight as they are in Portage,  getting set to play the Central Plains Capitals in the first game of a best of 3.


The Wild finished the season at 8-20 and were led by their captain Reese Beavis who led the team in scoring with 40 points including 29 goals.


Flin Flon's Mila Playford also had a good year collecting 28 points including 14 goals. Bailey Schwartz always keeps them in games and finished the season with a 3.10 gaa.


The Capitals were one of the top teams in the regular season and finished second overall at 19-9.


Games will be played at the BDO Centre tonight at 7, tomorrow at 4:30 and if necessary, Sunday at 11:15.

Storm Double Up On The Selects

The OCN Storm made their way to the Whitney Forum  last  night  for the final regular season home game for the PBCN Selects.


After a close first period , the Storm pulled away in the second and doubled up on the Selects 6 to 3.


With the playoffs approaching and the Selects solidifying third place they decided to rest some regulars again last night.


Owen Angootealuk led PBCN  with a pair of goals, his 10th and 11th of the year with Freddy Ledoux picking up his 29th of the season.


Laz  Constant had two goals for the Storm with singles coming from Troy Head, Ezekial Kirkness, Logan Marr and Drew Peters.


Final shots were 30 to 25 in favour of PBCN.


After last night's game, the Selects will drop to 18-11-0-4 and are locked into third spot with 40 points.


The Storm improve to 24-8-0-1and have 49 points and will finish first overall.


Just one more game left in the regular season as the Selects will head to Cross Lake this Saturday. OCN will finish their regular season at home this Sunday against NCN.


Playoffs will begin on Saturday March the 4th with the Selects hosting Cross Lake in the first game of a best of 3.

Flin Flon Hosting JV Girls Basketball Zones

Games start tomorrow at noon with Hapnot playing OCN. The Queens will also play the Pas at 3 and Norway House at 7:30.


Round Robin will continue through Saturday morning and the final will be played at 2:30.

The Zone Championship Final will be played on Saturday at 4:30pm.

Selects Host The Storm

The PBCN Selects will play their final regular season home game tonight when they welcome the OCN Storm to town.


The Selects lead the season series 3-2-2 with the Storm winning the most recent meeting 11 to 5 this past Saturday. PBCN did rest a lot of their regulars in this game.

Puck drop is 7:30 and local product's Gage Gogal and Nole Pearson will make their Select debuts tonight.

Bombers Impressive At The Cage

A very undermanned  Flin Flon Bomber unit made their way to the Centennial Arena in Nipawin last night for a key Sherwood Division clash.


The Bombers had 6 regulars out of the line-up including Cole Duperreault, Jeremi Tremblay, Matt Egan, Jacob Vockler, Jaeden Mercier and Cole Tanchuk.


Mike Reagan spoke on the CFAR Pre-Game Show from Nipawin last night and said it was time for other guys to step up.


That is exactly what happened as Brent Gulenchyn scored a late first period goal and the Bombers never looked back in a hard fought 6 to 4 win.


It was a big night for Alexi Sylvestre and Noah Houle who both scored a pair of goals.


Both of Houle's goals  came on the powerplay as he was able to get to the slot and score a couple of nice snap-shots low stick side on  Hawk netminder Jackson Fellner.


Ethan Mercer scored the other Bomber goal as he found the empty net with just over a minute left in regulation to give Flin Flon the big insurance goal.


The Nipawin goals came from Alex Ochitwa, Francois Xavier Bedard and two from Carson Dobson.


Both powerplays were sizzling with the Hawks going 3 for 5 and the Bombers finished up 2 for 4.


Harmon Laser Hume beat his former team for the fourth time and now has 24 wins on the season. He stopped 20 out of 24. His counterpart Jackson Fellner took the loss making 18 saves on 24 shots.


This is a big two points for the Bombers who improve to 32-13-2-1 and have pulled to within two points of Humboldt for second overall. 


Flin Flon will also get a bit more breathing room on Laronge and Melfort. The Bombers now lead the Wolves by 4 points and the Mustangs by 5.


Nipawin remains tied with Weyburn for 7th with 49 points and both teams have played 48 games.


Speaking of Weyburn, they will finally make their way to the Whitney Forum for a pair of games this weekend. They are playing good hockey and are 6-2-2 in their last 10.


They also beat the Bombers in their last meeting 4 to 1 back on February the 9th.


The Bombers have been red hot in February and improve to 6-2 and only have 8 games remaining in the regular season.


You can catch Saturday's game here on 102.9 CFAR and including the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.

Queens Win Tournament In Warren, Stay Undefeated

It was buisiness as usual for the Senior Hapnot Queens Basketball team this past weekend.


This time the Queens were in Warren to take on some of the top teams in the province.


The Queens beat MBCI out of The Pas and the number 5 ranked Carmen Cougars 56 to 53.


That would put them in the final against the number 3 ranked Warren Wilcats.


Hapnot prevailed with a huge 72 to 45 victory and stay undefeated on the season.


The Senior Kings were in Neepawa and played very well. They were perfect in the round robin and  beat Crocus Plains out of Brandon in the Semi's by a score of 65 to 58.


That put them in the finals against one of the best teams in all of Manitoba, the Neelin Spartans.


Neelin was able to pull out the win 80 to 48. Still a very good showing for the Kings who come second.


Next up will be the Zone playdowns. The Girls take place in the Pas and Boys in Norway House the weekend of March the 3rd.

Flin Flon Teams Have Great Showing At Munn Cup


One of the longest  running minor hockey tournaments in all of Manitoba took place in Thompson this past weekend.


The Munn Cup wrapped up yesterday and both Flin Flon teams had a good showing.


The Northland Ford Bombers competed in the B-division and went undefeated.


The Bombers beat Norway House and The Pas to get to the finals. They didn't disappoint with a 13 to 6 win over the Gillam Chargers in the B-Final.


Jacob Kozar led the way with a hat-trick and Jory Genaille was the player of the game. Arden Taylor earned two shut-outs on the weekend.


The Peds Threads Bombers were in the A- division. They started a little slow with a couple of tight losses to Rankin Inlet and Thompson.


They finished the round robin with a 5 to 3 win against the Pas Huskies and got another chance at Rankin in the semi's.


This time Peds Threads prevailed in a nail biter 5 to 4 and got to the Munn Cup Final against the host King Miners.


The score was deadlocked 2 to 2 after 2, but the King Miners had a strong third period and ended up winning 5 to 2 to claim  the Munn Cup.


Cache Bentley was the player of the game and scored both goals.


Congratulations to Bentley Crone who made the all star team. 

Bombers And Stars Split

The Flin Flon Bombers managed a split this past weekend against the number one team in the country, the Battleford Stars.


On Friday I can't ever remember a game where I saw a team play an entire game mistake free and the Bombers won convincingly 6 to 0.  


Flin Flon totally controlled the game and didn't give the Stars hardly any offensive zone time.


The Bombers fed off the crowd for Hockey Night In The North and treated the 1400 in attendance to their best effort of the season.


Alex Von Sprecken led the way with a pair of powerplay goals, his fourth and fifth. Other Bomber goals came from Brent Gulenchyn, Liam Bridger, Alexi Sylvestre and Cole Duperreault with his team leading 34th.


It was a complete domination with Flin Flon out shooting Battleford 48 to 15 enroute  to their 31st win of the season.


This was just the fourth loss in regulation all season by the Stars.


Harmon Laser Hume picked up his fourth shutout of the year and picked up his 21st  win.


SJHL MVP candidate Josh Kotai was the Stars best player despite giving up 6 goals on 48 shots.


You knew the Stars would be better on Saturday and they were.


On the strength of three second period goals, Battleford rebounded with a 4 to 2 win last night.


Jackson Allan led the way with a pair of goals and set up Bradley Blake on a one timer as the Stars jumped out 3 to 0 early in the second.


Flin Flon was able to stop the bleeding with a late second period goal from Zach Cain who re-directed a Rylan Pearce shot for his 20th of the year.


The Bombers came out for the third flying and did get the deficit to one, when Jacob Vockler scored right off the face-off on a power play.


Unfortunately the Bombers couldn't get another puck past Josh Kotai,  and SJHL leading scorer Kian Bell would score on a break away and gave the Stars a big insurance goal to make the final 4 to 2.


Once again the Bombers out shot the Stars 40 to 24 but the Stars were able to score some timely goals and Kotai was lights out.


It looks like it was a costly weekend for Flin Flon who lost Jeremi Tremblay to an upper body injury on Friday. Head Coach and GM, Mike Reagan expects him to be out a couple of weeks.


Cole Duperreault also left last night's game after blocking a shot  with his hand and his status right now is not known.


After the weekend the Bombers find themselves  first in the Sherwood but have fallen to third overall at 31-13-2-1. They are two points behind Humboldt who beat Estevan twice on the weekend.


Laronge is also breathing down the Bombers necks, and are just two points behind after beating Kindersley last night. Flin Flon does have 4 games in hand on the Wolves.


Battleford will improve to a league best 41-4-2-1.


A big weekend ahead for the Maroon and White who head to Nipawin tomorrow, and will entertain the Weyburn Red Wings in a pair of games this weekend.


The Wings are anything but a free two points any more and come to Flin Flon this weekend one of the hottest teams in the SJHL. Weyburn has won 7 of their last 10 and are tied with Nipawin for 7th overall.


Weyburn is also within striking distance of Estevan for 6th and are just 4 points back with three games in hand.


Should be a very exciting week and you can catch tomorrow's game from Nipawin and the Saturday game against Weyburn on 102.9 CFAR and

Let's Get It On

It has been a weekend that a lot of hockey fans have been waiting for and counting down the days as the Battleford Stars will finally make their way to the Whitney Forum this weekend.


It will be the Stars first visit since last spring's opening round playoff series exit in 6 games. Battleford led it two games to none before the Bombers caught fire in front of a big crowd for game 3 and never looked back.


The two teams have met twice this season back in the Battlefords on November the 18th and 19th. They  had to play the first game in Wilkie, then the Battleford Arena due to ice problems at the Civic Centre.


Battleford took both contests by scores of 5 to 2 and  4 to 3 in OT. The Stars are putting together one of the best seasons in league history and are running away in the overall standings at 40-3-2-1 and have 83 points.


That is 20 more than both the Bombers and Humboldt Broncos, who are tied for second overall.


They have only lost 3 games in regulation all season and two of those have come against the Humboldt Broncos.


There are lots of reasons for the Stars success this year including the top line of Holden Doell, Kian Bell and Jeff Southgate. These three players are the top three scorers in the league and have combined for 221 points so far this year.


Battleford has also gotten very good goaltending out of Josh Kotai and Justin Maric.


Kotai leads the league in pretty much every goaltending statistik including wins with 27 and a sizzling save % of .937. His backup Justin Maric isn't bad either at 13-1 and a save % of .932.


Congratulations to Kotai who has just received an NCAA scholarship to play for Augustans next season.


The Bombers will have their work cut out for them in no matter what goalie they face.


Flin Flon comes into the weekend playing some good hockey of their own and are 6-1 in their last 7 including a 3 and 1 road trip down south last week.


After the Battleford trio of Bell, Doell and Southgate, the Bombers have the fourth, fifth and sixth overall scorers.


Cole Duperreault is having a masterful season with 61 points in 42 games and has scored 36 goals which is second behind Bell with 43. Right behind him is Jeremi Tremblay with 55 points including 27 goals and the injured Jaeden Mercier with 50 points.


It looks like Mercier will be out the rest of the season with a broken ankle but will hopefully be back for playoffs. Mercier's absence has definately hurt the Bomber powerplay which has dropped 4 % since he has been out for the last 7 games.


It was nice to see Flin Flon get some secondary scoring the last trip with Matt Egan, Kylynn Olafson and Joey Lies all finding the back of the net.


The Bombers wil have to continue to get secondary scoring this weekend if they are going to knock off the Stars.


Flin Flon will also be looking forward to welcoming back former Assistant Coach, Gary Childerhose who spent 5 seasons with the Maroon and including a couple trips to the league final.


Gary has been an assistant with his home town Stars the past couple of years and was very popular during his time in Flin Flon. 


A capacity crowd is expected tonight as it is Hockey Night In The North. That means that tonight's game is absolutely free for anybody who would like to attend.


A big thanks to tonight's sponsors, City  Of Flin Flon, Town Of Creighton, Village Of Denare Beach and Hudbay who are fitting the bill so you don't have to. 


You can also catch both games this weekend on 102.9 CFAR and Both games start at 7:10 with the Great North GM Coach's Show.

Kodiaks Are 2023 Nessac Champions

Congratulations to the Senior Creighton Kodiaks Girls Basketball team on winning the 2023 Nessac Championship in Nipawin.


The tournament featured four teams including Nipawin, Tisdale, Hudson Bay and the Creighton Kodiaks.


Creighton beat the host Nipawin Bears by a score of 54 to 18 in the first Semi- Final and Tisdale beat Hudson Bay which would put  the Kodiaks against  the Tornadoes in the final.


The Kodiaks came out to play and won the final handilly by a score of 60 to 29 and are the 2023 Nessac Champions.

Senior Kings And Queens Back On The Road

Another busy weekend for the Senior Hapnot Queens and Kings basketball teams.

Two Bombers Pick Up Awards

The Flin Flon Bombers were very impressive on the road this past week coming home with 6 out of a possible 8 points.


What makes it even more impressive is that they are winning games without a couple of key players in Cole Tanchuk and Jaeden Mercier.


The Bombers are 6-1 in their last 7 as they get ready for their stiffest tests of the season and a weekend showdown with the Battleford Stars.


Battleford will hit the Whitney Forum for the first time this season and a couple of Bomber players have been rewarded for their fine play.


Alexi Sylvestre was chosen the DirectWest Rookie Of The Week and was one of their best players on the road trip registering 2 goals and 4 assists in the four games played.Sylvestre now has 16 goals and 17 assists on the year which is good for second in overall rookie scoring.


His team mate Corey King picked up the SuperU Defenseman Of The Week and was terrific in a defensive role and chipped in with four assists. King has 5 goals and 17 assists in 44 games so far this season.

With another perect weekend the Queens move up a spot in the rankings and are now no.7 in the province.

The Peguis Juniors were able to mount a late third period comeback as they snapped the PBCN Selects 11 game winning streak in the Keystone Junior Hockey League.


The Selects knocked off Peguis on Friday by a score of 5 to 2 in a game that was played in Pine Creek.


Dwayne McKenzie led the way with a pair of goals, his 31st and 32nd of the season.


Odin Chuch picked up his 11th win of the season for PBCN, stopping 32 out of 34 shots.


On Saturday, the Selects were just over 3 minutes away from winning their 12th straight as Lyle Murdock scored his 23rd with just over 3 minutes remaining in regulation to tie the game at 5.


Peguis brought the momentum into the extra period and Keanu Woodhouse took a nice pass from Jeremiah Jacques and beat Logan Grenier for the game winning goal and a 6 to 5 OT win.


Dominic Suhr scored a pair for the Selects as their impressive 11 game winning streak came to an end.

Bombers Down Hounds And Move Up The Ladder

Despite some key injuries the Flin Flon Bombers continue to win hockey games and picked up another solid road win last night.


The Bombers rolled into Wilcox and beat the Hounds 3 to 1 to pick up their third road win on the trip and have won 6 of their last 7 games.


Once again the Bombers had an impressive first period and scored all three goals in the opening frame.


Cole Duperreault continues to dominate every single game and scored his team leading 36th to open the game just 3:46 in. Duperreault despite missing the game in Weyburn had an incredible trip where he picked up 5 points in 3 games.


Flin Flon is also starting to get some secondary offense as Kylyn Olafson would bang in a rebound off Tucker Inabinet's pad for his second of the season which would stand up as the game winner.


After Marko Djordjeic scored to make it a one goal game, local product Joey Lies was able to race down the ice on a break away and put a backhander in for his second of the year.


That was it for the offense as both goalies shut the door the rest of the way.


Final shots were 36 to 29 in Flin Flon's favour.


A great road trip for Flin Flon as they go 3-1 which included wins in Yorkton and an exciting OT win in Estevan on Saturday.


The Bombers improve to 30-12-2-1 and are now first in the Sherwood and second overall. They lead both Humboldt and Laronge by two points.

Bombers Drop 4 To 1 Decision In Weyburn

It was a good start for the Flin Flon Bombers who made their way to Crescent Point Place in Weyburn last night.


The Bombers got on the board late in the first period when Jacob Vockler scored his 12th of the season with just over 2 minutes remaining in the opening frame.


Weyburn answered that with a powerplay goal early in the second from leading scorer Ryley Morgan and the Wings never looked back.


The Wings would add three more for the 4 to 1 win  with the other goals coming from Jacob Kalin, Nicholas Kovacs and Elijah Anderson.


Harmon Laser Hume was back between the pipes last night for Flin Flon  and he surrendered 4 goals on 30 shots.


Mitchell Dazza got the start for Weyburn and he only gave up one goal on 32 shots.


The Bombers were with out their top offensive threat, Cole Duperreault who injured his back the night before in Yorkton. They are definately missing him and Jaeden Mercier who remains out of the lineup with a broken foot.


Duperreault's status for the rest of the trip is unknown.


After last night's loss the Bomber record will drop to 28-12-2-1 and they remain two points behind Laronge for first in the Sherwood and second overall. Flin Flon has 6 games in hand. 


It was a big two points for Weyburn who improve to 20-20-2-1 and are now 6 points up on Notre Dame for the final playoff spot. The Wings are also just two points back of Nipawin for 7th with a game in hand.


The Bombers will get today off before resuming the road trip in Estevan tomorrow and Notre Dame on Sunday. If the playoffs were to start today the Estevan Bruins would be the Bombers first round opponent.

It was a great way for the Flin Flon Bombers to start the 4 game in 5 night road trip last night as they went into Yorkton and shut out the Terriers 2 to 0.


The game winning goal was scored just 2:05 into the opening period when Zach Cain potted his 19th on a terrific feed from Jeremi Tremblay.


That would hold up til late in the third when Barron Stibbe was able to score his first as a Bomber for a little insurance,  as the Bombers hung on for an important two poiints. 


Kenny Marquart got the start and picked up his second shutout of the season and ended up stopping all 21 shots fired in his direction.


Caleb Allen got the start for Yorkton and was their best player last night stopping 35 out of 37 shots , and was the biggest reason the Terriers were able to stay in the game.


Wit last night's win, the Bombers improve to 28-11-2-1 and are once again just two points behind Laronge for first in the Sherwood and second overall.


Flin Flon also has 7 games in hand. The Bombers will leap frog Humboldt by two points and take over third overall, with the Broncos having a game in hand.


The road trip will continue tonight in Weyburn against a much improved Red Wing team.


The Wings are 6-2-2 in their last 10 and are really starting to put some distance between them and Notre Dame for the final playoff spot. Weyburn is 6 points up on the Hounds and are now just 4 points behind 7th place Nipawin.


Flin Flon leads the season series 2 games to none and puck drop is 7:30 in Weyburn tonight.

Capitals Bounce Wild

It was a tough weekend for the Norman U-15 Female Wild who lost both games to the Central Plains Capitals.


Both games were played yesterday at the Creighton Sportex. Saturday's game was postponed due to Central Plains having bus problems.


The Capitals had anything but bus legs taking it to the Wild by scores of 11 to 1 and 3 to 1.


There were a few bright spots for the Wild in the second game as Flin Flon's Sam Dallas scored the lone goal and Bailey Schwartz stopped well over 40 shots to keep her team in the game.


Norman will fall to 8 and 20 on the season and will now look forward to the Showcase coming up in March.



Kopper Queens Defeat Raiders

The Senior Hapnot Queens Basketball team squared off with the FCI Raiders out of Cranberry in a pair of games this past weekend.


The Queens took both games by scores of 83 to 20 and 90 to 24.

10 In A Row

It was another big weekend for the PBCN Selects in the Keystone Junior Hockey League , as they travelled to Thompson and took both games against the NCN Flames.

Odin Church was solid in goal stopping 33 out of 35 shots.


Yesterday, Tyler Bird had the hot hand as he scored a pair of goals with Caden Joanis and Carson Favel chipping in.


Another superb performance from Odin Church who stopped 40 out of 41 shots for another victory.


The Selects are on quite the roll and have reeled off 10 straight wins and have closed to within 4 points of Peguis for second and are just 6 behind the front running Storm.


PBCN will get a chance to get a share of second as they will host Peguis in a pair of games this weekend. Friday's game will be a neautral site game in Pine Creek with the two teams returning to the Whitney Forum on Saturday night.

Peds Threads Bombers Win Grub Box Tournament

It was a great weekend for the U-11 Peds Threads Bombers who won the Grub Box tournament in the Pas earlier today.


The Bombers split the two round robin games with the Pas Huskies with each team winning a game.


Flin Flon went on to win the third game 7 to 4 to capture the Grub Box tournament at the Roy H. Johnston Arena.


Dex Tetlock led the way with 4 goals with Cohen Banting chipping in with two and the other goal from Parker Meikle.


Eli Chrisp was solid in net.


Next up for the U-11 Peds Threads Bombers will be the 53rd annual Munn Cup in Thompson the weekend of Feb the 18th and 19th.

Bombers Pick Up Third Straight Win

The Flin Flon Bombers picked up their third straight win at home as they held off the Nipawin Hawks 4 to 3 on Saturday night.


Flin Flon had to play catch up as they spotted the Hawks an  early powerplay goal courtesy of Braxton Buchberger just over 3 minutes into the opening period.


The Bomber' s Corey King would answer with a powerplay goal of his own when he fired a nice snapsjot just under the bar to beat Damon Cunningham just 2 minutes later.


Nipawin would retake the lead early in the second period when Finley Radloff snuck a shot past Laser Hume,  when he fired a shot through a crowd of players in front of the Bomber net.


Flin Flon was back on their heels but turned the game around scoring three straight goals to close out the period.


Cole Duperreault got things going with his team leading 33rd of the year converting a nice pass from Alex Von Sprecken. 


Zach Kain would then re-direct a shot though Cunningham's legs for his 18th of the season on the powerplay. 


The Bombers would get a big break with just over 30 seconds remaining in the second period when a puck bounced off the boards behind the Hawks net. The puck came  right out front to Bomber sniper Jeremi Tremblay who made a quick move to slip the puck past Cunningham and put his team up 4 to 2 after 2.


This stood up as the game winner as Nipawin scored the only goal in the third when Joel Mabin found the back of the net for his 18th of the year on the powerplay.


The Hawks took it to the Bombers in the third out shooting them 16 to 4 but Harmon Laser Hume stood tall and made some timely saves.


It was another good goaltending battle as Damon Cunningham also made some big stops. Final shots were 40 to 35 for Nipawin.


Both teams had  success on the pp with the Bombers going 2 for 5 and Nipawin was 2 for 4.


This was a huge 2 points for Flin Flon who gained ground on Laronge who lost in Melville.


The Bombers record now sits at: 27-11-2-1 and are just 2 points behind the Wolves for first in the Sherwood and second overall. Flin Flon also has a whopping 6 games in hand and will have 7 after tomorrow as the Wolves will play in Notre Dame on Monday.


I have to tip my hat to Tad Kozan and the Hawks who are vastly improved and play a very exciting game. They have some forwards that can really skate and it looks like they have two capable goaltenders.


They will not be fun to play in the playoffs.


This is a very big week for the Bombers as they hit the road for 4 games in 5 nights starting Wednesday in Yorkton. They then head to Weyburn on Thursday, Estevan Saturday and Notre Dame on Sunday.


These are all desperate hockey teams that are fighting for their playoff lives and will be anything but easy games.


This road trip will be a big factor in where the Bombers will finish this season.


Flin Flon will then return home and will face the first place Battleford Stars the following weekend. We will broadcast both these games on 102.9 CFAR and
