Bombers Take Down Mustangs 4 To 2

The Flin Flon powerplay remained on fire last night as they scored three with the extra man and beat the Melfort Mustangs 4 to 2.

 

Flin Flon built up a 3 to 0 lead on powerplay goals from Carter Andersen his 14th, Koen Senft his 5th and Justin Lies his 20th.

 

It looked like the Bombers were going to be able to take it to cruise control but took a 5 minute major penalty and the Mustangs took advantage with a couple powerplay goals of their own.

 

Logan Belton and Chase Friedt Mohr both found the back of the net in just under a minute span to close out the second period.

 

Harmon Laser Hume held the fort and ended up with 28 saves for his league leading 15th win of the year. Captain Justin Lies added his second of the night and league leading 21st into the empty net to seel it.

 

Mustang goalie James Venne was at his usual best and kept his team in the game making 51 saves in a losing cause.

 

The Bombers improve to a league best 21-1-2 and are also 11-1-1 at the Whitney Forum. Melfort will fall to 15-9-2 but gave it a pretty good effort last night without two of their top scorers in Ryan Duguay and Zac Somers.

 

Flin Flon will play two more games at home this weekend as they welcome Yorkton to town on Friday and Humboldt on Saturday. We will broadcast Saturday's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

Laser Hume continued his hot streak with a pair of wins against the Yorkton Terriers last weekend.

 

On Friday, Laser Hume came in relief of Kenny Marquart and stopped all 21 shots fired in his direction and allowed the Bombers to over come a 3-0 deficit  and win the game 4 to 3.

 

Sunday , Laser Hume stopped another 21 shots as the Bombers picked up their 20th win of the year with the 4 to 2 victory.

 

Laser Hume is having a career season and leads the league in wins with 14 and has the best GAA of 2.12 and save % of  .926.

Bombers Take 5 Out Of 6 Points

It wasn't their prettiest road trip but the Flin Flon Bombers picked up a possible 5 out of 6 points including a 4 to 2 victory over the Yorkton Terriers yesterday afternoon.

 

The Bombers once again started slow giving up a goal just 27 seconds into the opening period. One of Yorkton's big snipers, Clay Sleeva pounced on a loose puck in front of the Bomber net to beat Harmon Laser Hume.

 

The Terriers kept coming and were awarded a 5 minute powerplay when Matt Egan got ejected from the game for a high hit. Aidan Knutson re-directed a shot in front of the Bomber net to pick up his team leading 10th of the season.

 

Yorkton led 2 to 0 and looked like they were in control, but the Bombers who have the number one powerplay in the league took advantage of their opportunities and ended up going 3 for 5 on the day with a pair from Noah Houle and Liam Bridger scored his fourth of the season.

 

Captain Justin Lies seeled the deal and  added a empty net goal with just 21 seconds left in the game for his 19th of the season. That ties him with Ryan Duguay of the Melfort Mustangs for the league lead.

 

Lies also added an assist and now leads the league with 38 points on the year in 22 games and had a 3 point game in a 4 to 3 win over the Terriers on Friday night. He received a game misconduct late Friday and didn't suit up against Melville on Saturday.

 

The Bombers could of used him and dropped their second game of the season to Melville 2 to 1 in OT.

 

Both Flin Flon Bomber goalies were nothing  short of fantastick and were the biggest reasons that Flin Flon was able to come home with 5 out of a possible 6 points.

 

On Friday,  Harmon Laser Hume was able to come into the game in relief of Kenny Marquart and stopped all 21 shots fired in his direction. Laser Hume was good again yesterday finishing up with 21 saves on 23 shots.

 

Marquart started against Melville on Saturday and was razor sharp making 31 saves on 33 shots and was the best player on the ice making many brilliant saves including a couple beauties in OT. 

 

All in all, the Bombers have to be happy with the results and improve their record to a league best 20-1-2 and are once again the number one team in the nation for the fifth straight week.

 

Flin Flon is 7-0-1 in November and have a big week coming up. The Bombers will play 3 games this week all at home with Melfort in town on Wednesday, Yorkton here Friday and the Humboldt Broncos who are back at the Whitney Forum for the third time on Saturday.

 

We will broadcast Saturday's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

Roy a gritty tough nosed forward has 6 points and 76 pims while with the Bombers. He is expected to play within the Selects top 9 and will make a living killing penalties and provide the team with toughness and secondary scoring.

 

Roy is former AAAU18 player as well, playing with the Kenora Thistles of the MBAAA league.

 

“ any time you can add a hard-working player from a junior A program it’s a good day.” - Gatlin Church. “ it’s possible, we could see Roy on the wing playing with Kobikov this season.”

 

Roy is the 5th former Junior A player the Selects have added so far this season.

 

He is expected to arrive in Flin Flon this weekend.

New Goalie Leads Selects To Two Wins On The Weekend

The PBCN Selects have added a new goalie Ethan Fechter out of Meadow Lake Saskatchewan,  and he was almost flawless in his Selects debut this past weekend.

 

Fechter ended up making 55 saves on 56 shots and got lots of offensive support as PBCN beat the Way Way Wild 5 to 1 and 9 to 0 yesterday afternoon.

 

Cranberry's Harlan Jacobson  had a great weekend picking up 5 goals in the two games including a hat-trick in the win yesterday. Owen Angooteaulk and Jacey Melnyk added a pair of goals.

 

The Selects improve to 10 and 4 on the season and are now just 2 points out of first overall behind the NCN Flames.

 

PBCN will enjoy a 12 day break and are back on the Ice December the 2nd in Cross Lake.

Bombers Take Down The Broncos

It was a statement weekend for the Flin Flon Bombers who knocked off the Humboldt Broncos in both games at the Whitney Forum.

 

Friday the Bombers started slow and gave up the first goal of the game when Maric Mamic was able to score a fluky goal back of the Bomber net.

 

Flin Flon shook that off and scored five unanswered including a goal late in the first period by the SJHL scoring leader Alexi Sylvestre who potted his 12th.

 

Brock Mueller, Justin Lies and Ashton Paul all added goals in the second period with Joey Lies scoring a big insurance goal in the third.

 

Despite the 5 to 1 win,  the Bronco's actually out shot the Bombers 50 to 42. I am pretty sure that is the first time all season that Flin Flon has been out shot in a game.

 

Humboldt came out flying again on Saturday but once again had trouble beating Harmon Laser Hume,  and it was the Bombers scoring the first goal when Koen Senft fooled Benjamin Motew with a quick shot off the faceoff.

 

This sparked the Bombers when Captain Justin Lies buried his 15th of the season early in the second when he grabbed a loose puck and made some nifty moves before firing a nice shot over Motew's left shoulder.

 

Maddox Amaral would bang in a loose puck at the side of the Bombers net to get the Bronco's on the board but that was as close as they would come all night.

 

The Bombers pulled away scoring three more goals courtesy of  Alexi Sylvestre, Matt Egan and one more from Justin Lies.

 

It was great to see Matt Egan score who finally returned to the lineup after missing the last several weeks with an injury. The fourth line looked good both nights and the Broncos had a tough time with the Bombers depth.

 

I think it is safe to say that Harmon Laser Hume answered his critics and was lights out both games stopping 82 out of 85 shots over the weekend.

 

Flin Flon improves to a league best and staggering 18-1-1 and get back out on the road this weekend.

 

The Bombers will play in Yorkton Friday, Melville on Saturday and back in Yorkton on Sunday.

 

This is an interesting trip with the Terriers playing some good hockey and are 5-5 in their last 10 after adding former Bomber goalie Ethan Farrow who is 4-1. Farrow most recently played with the OCN Blizzard and was a MJHL All Star last year.

 

Yorkton is a different team since acquiring him. Melville is one of the most improved teams this season under new bench boss Doug Johnson  and are the only team to beat Flin Flon in regulation so far this year.

 

The Bombers will be looking to exact some revenge. You will be able to listen to all three games on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

 

 

 

 

Kings And Queens Provincial Bound

 

It was another great weekend for Hapnot Athletics with both the Senior Hapnot Queens and Kings winning zones in volleyball.

 

The Queens hosted in Flin Flon and went 3-0 in the round robin beating Cranberry, OCN and Nelson House. Hapnot then went on to beat Norway House in the semi's before beating Cranberry in the final 25 to 14 and 25 to 12.

 

The Kings were in Cranberry and were able to rebound after an opening loss to Cranberry. The Kings would go on to beat Moose Lake and split with MBCI out of the Pas to finish the round robin.

 

This put them in the playoff round and the Kings would once again face off against Moose Lake beating them in the semis 25 to 12 and 25 to 11.

 

Hapnot then beat Cranberry in the final 25 to 14 and 25 to 20.

Bombers Ready To Take On The Broncos

It is the matchup the SJHL and entire hockey world has been waiting for as the Flin Flon Bombers will square off against the Humboldt Broncos this weekend.

 

Flin Flon is fresh off two convincing wins at the Showcase including an 8 to 1 win over Weyburn on Monday and another dominating 6 to 1 win against Estevan on Tuesday.

 

The Bombers are a staggering 16-1-1 and have been ranked the number one team in the country the last three weeks. Humboldt is certainly no slouch and are an impressive 13-2-2-1, good for second overall.

 

These are also two of the best teams in goals against  with the Bombers giving up only 39 goals in 18 games and the Broncos giving up 40 in 18.

 

The Bombers also score more than anyone with 98 goals for while the Bronco's are third overall with 85.

 

This will be their first meeting since last year's second round playoff matchup which saw the Bombers advance to the league final after winning the series in 5 games.

 

Humboldt has added a few pieces since then including rookie sensation's Connor Thue who is leading all rookies in scoring with 21 points in 18 games and team mate Travis Bryson right behind him with 19 points.

 

Flin Flon is being led offensively  by Alexi Sylvestre, Jacob Vockler, Justin Lies and Noah Houle who occupy four of the top five spots for overall scoring.

 

These four players have combined for 113 points so far this season.

 

Both teams have great goaltending with the tandem of Harmon Laser Hume and Kenny Marquart among the league leaders in most categories including gaa With Hume at 2.39 and Marquart at 1.70.

 

Benjamin Motew has been a rock for the Bronco's and has picked up 9 wins to go along with a 2.33 gaa.

 

It should be an electrifying atmosphere at the Whitney Forum with two of the premiere Junior A club's in the country battling it for league supremacy.

 

We will have the broadcast on Flow TV tonight and back on radio tomorrow with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and drop of the puck at 7:30.

Suhr Superb In Return To The Selects

Dominic Suhr made his return to the PBCN Selects lineup last night from the SIJHL and made an instant impact , scoring 4 goals as the Selects rolled over the NCN Flames 9 to 3.

 

Suhr opened up the scoring in the first period and added three more in the third to go along with one assist for a very successful debut.

 

Owen Angooteaulk scored a pair with singles coming from Harlan Jacobson, Embry Roberts and Israel Maktor.

 

Paxton Moore got the start and picked up his 5th win of the year with 25 saves.

 

This was a big win for the Selects who improve to 8 and 4 and are only one  point back of second place Peguis and just two points behind the first place  Flames.

 

 

PBCN hits the road again on Saturday as they head to Wayway to face the winless Wild.

Bombers Impress At The Showcase

The Flin Flon Bombers have been ranked the number one team in Canada the last three weeks and they sure looked like it at the SJHL Showcase in Warman.

 

On Monday,  after spotting Weyburn the first goal the Maroon and White Express score eight unanswered for the 8 to 1 victory.

 

Among the highlights was the first career SJHL hat-trick from Carter Anderson who scored all three of his goals on the powerplay.

 

Justin Lies had a strong game picking up two more goals with Adam McNutt, Koen Senft and Alexi Sylvestre rounding out the scoring.

 

Kenny Marquart was back between the pipes and stopped 18 out of 19 for his 6th win of the season. Marquart' s numbers continue to be outstanding  with a .937 save % plus a 1.70 gaa.

 

Flin Flon took over right where they left off on Tuesday and reeled off 6 straight goals enroute to a 6 to 1 win against trhe Estevan Bruins.

 

Bomber Captain Justin Lies scored just 3:57 into the opening frame and Flin Flon never looked back with Jacob Vockler picked up his team leading 13th and 14th of the year.  Carter Anderson also found the back of the net twice  for his 11th and 12th and was one of the top players at the Showcase with 5 goals in two games.

 

Anthony Piccininno scored the other Bomber goal for his 7th of the season.

 

Harmon Laser Hume was just 48 seconds away from picking up his second shut-out of the year. Felix Howard was able to sneak a shot past Hume from the blue line on a 5 on 3 powerplay for the Bruins only goal of the game.

 

After the two Showcase wins the Bombers are a staggering 16-1-1 and will finally return to home ice to face the Humboldt Broncos this weekend.

 

Humboldt is a top tier team and are very good defensively giving up a league best 40 goals against in 18 games. They did lose to Melville 4 to 3 today for just their second regulation loss of the season.

 

This should be a really good test for Flin Flon who lead the league in goals with 98 in 18 games. This is the match up the whole hockey world has been looking forward to.

 

We will have the Friday broadcast on FLO TV and back on radio Saturday with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and drop of the puck at 7:30.

Bombers Rebound Against The Mustangs

The Flin Flon Bombers were able to respond after their first regulation loss of the season and beat a good Melfort Mustang club 5 to 4 last night.

 

After dropping a tight 3 to 2 game against Melville on Saturday, the Bombers had a good start to last night's game.

 

Justin Lies and Kylynn Olafson were able to get to James Venne in the first period and gave them some momentum for the rest of the night.

 

Even though the Bombers did blow a couple of two goal leads in the game they were always in control.

 

Other goals came from Adam McNutt, Alexi Sylvestre and Carter Anderson who  would score his 7th in 7 games which stood  up as the game winner. 

 

McNutt really seems to be finding his groove and has been one of their best players the past couple of games and is starting to look very comfortable on the Bomber blue line.

 

Rhett Hamilton, David Rioux and Ryan Duguay scored a pair for the Mustangs in a losing cause. Duguay is having a great season and leads the league with 14 goals so far this year.

 

Give the Mustangs credit, they  battled hard for having 7 of their regulars out of the line-up last night  including two of their better offensive players in Zac Sommers and Aidyn Hutchinson.

 

Flin Flon's penalty kill  was great once again last night and only gave up the one pp goal on 6 chances. The Bombers went 2 for 5 on the man advantage.

 

The Bombers handilly out shot Melfort 44 to 26 and improve to a league best 14-1-1 and the Stangs will drop to 10-5-1.

 

Flin Flon  continues  to have the league's best penalty kill at a staggering 89.4 % and was one of the biggest reasons for a key win last night.

 

The Bombers will now enjoy an 11 day break and won't be back on the ice til November the 13th when they travel to Warman to face the Weyburn Red Wings at the SJHL Showcase.

 

 

 

Lee Wins The Bronze

Flin Flon's Hunter Lee continues to have great success in wrestling and can now add a Bronze medal from the Pan Am games to the list of his accomplishments.

 

Lee, who was a replacement for Alex Moore who had to withdraw welcomed the opportunity and found himself on the world stage once again.

 

Lee wrestling in the 86 kg event beat Ethan Ramos out of Puerto Rico 14 to 4 to claim the Bronze medal.

 

In an interview with the CBC, Lee had this to say about his performance. " I've never been to a Pan Am Games or any sort of games before, so happy to get a bronze in my first one, but it's onto the next. I kinda wanted the gold, so happy with the bronze, but not satisfied."

 

Next up will be the Olympic trials in December as Lee will try to earn a spot in Paris for 2024, which will be a dream come true for this very motivated Flin Flon athlete.
