Bombers Defeat Broncos 1-0 In Game 5 To Advance To SJHL Final

The Flin Flon Bombers are heading back to the SJHL Final for the first time since 2017 after defeating the Humboldt Broncos 1-0 in Game5.

Jacob Vockler’s power play goal in the first period stood as the game winner and the game’s lone goal. Goaltender Cal Schell was sensational making 37 saves for his second shutout of the series.

The Bombers reeled off three straight victories to take a 3-0 series lead over the Broncos. Humboldt would stave off elimination with a 3-2 overtime win in Game 4.

The Bombers will take on the Centennial Cup host, Estevan Bruins in the SJHL final. Estevan finished the regular season with a 43-10-2-3 record, good for first overall in the SJHL standings. With the series win over Humboldt, the Bombers have also secured a spot in the Centennial Cup National Championship in May.
