A four goal Nipawin outburst in the first period was all it took to sink the Flin Flon Bombers in Game 4 last night, as the Hawks cruised to a 4-1 win and a 3-1 series lead in their SJHL Semi Final matchup.
Brett Harasymuk scored just :43 seconds into the game and Eric Bolden scored a pair before Josh Bly scored his third of the post season to put the Hawks at 4-0, chasing starter Zac Robidoux before the end of the first.
Teal Sobkowicz (Outlook, SK) scored the lone goal for the Bombers early into the first period, a shorthanded marker.
Robidoux made 12 saves on 16 shots; Brendan Newton made his first appearance of the round in relief, making 22 saves in just over two periods.
Flin Flon fired 35 shots on the Hawks Kristian Stead.
Flin Flon will look avoid elimination tomorrow night when they host Game 5 at the Whitney Forum.
