The Bombers started out on Tuesday night against the Yorkton Terriers, where they had a slow start, scoring no goals until the last second of the first period, coming from Jacob Vockler.

This continued into the third with another two goals, both from Alexi Sylvestre and the Bombers took the game 5-0 over the Terriers.
The Bombers got outshot by the Terriers 35 to 33 but Harmon Laser-Hume did a great job, stopping all 35 shots for the shutout. The Bombers went 1/3 on the PP and stopped the Terriers both times on the PK.
The Bombers came out hot the following night against the Notre Dame Hounds with two quick goals from Reid Arberry and Justin Lies in the first period.

The Bombers didn’t skip a beat and took an early 3-0 lead in the first with goals coming from Jacob Vockler, Dawson Karol and Carter Anderson. Things slowed down a little bit in the second with the Bombers giving up one goal to the Bruins without scoring any.

The Bombers outshot the Bruins 35 to 23 and Harmon Laser-Hume stopped 22 of 23 shots. The Bombers were successful yet again the PP going 2/4 and stopped Estevan all four times on the PK.
For the final game of the road trip, the Bombers had one of their hardest matchup’s of the season against the Weyburn Red Wings. It was a close one throughout the entire game with the Bombers and Red Wings going shot for shot until the Carter Anderson finally scored mid way through the second period for the Bombers. It was looking like the Bombers had the momentum going their way but the Red Wings quickly answered back and tied it up 1-1. Going into the third, it was some more back and forth action but no one was able to put one away, so to overtime the game went. Still tied 1-1 after the overtime period, it was now all going to be decided in a shootout. The Bombers were finally able to take it home in the shoot out, with Jacob Vockler scoring as the first skater up and then Alexi Sylvestre scoring as the forth skater in line to secure the victory 2-1.
