Nipawin’s Eric Bolden opened up the scoring 3:13 into the first period off a rebound but Flin Flon would score the next three, lead by Greyson Reitmeier (Nakusp, BC), who had a pair of goals, including the eventual game winner midway through the third period, helping the Bombers to a 3-2 win, and putting the best of seven SJHL Semi Finals at 2-1.
Reitmeier scored his first of the night to tie up the game 1-1 17:00 into the first from Rylee Zimmer (Russell, MB).
Nate Hooper (Winnipeg, MB) scored the lone second period goal, as his rebound shot rolled over the shoulder of Hawk’s starter Declan Hobbs midway through the middle frame.
Zimmer picked up his second assist of the night on Hooper’s second goal of the post season. Kristian St. Onge (Saskatoon, SK) added the other assist.
Reitmeier scored his second of the game 9:23 into the third from Nick Shumlanski (Tisdale, SK) and Eric Sinclair (Kenora, ON) on the power play.
After a late penalty, Brandan Arnold scored on the power play with less than three minutes left in the third.
Game four goes tonight in Nipawin with game five set for Friday night back at the Whitney Forum.
