The Bombers would build a 4-1 lead with goals from Ethan Mercer, Brent Gulenchyn and Joey Lies. Nipawin would cut the deficit to one with just ten seconds remaining but couldn’t find the equalizer.
Earlier in the week, the Bombers travelled to Yorkton and Humboldt. On Tuesday night in Yorkton, the Bombers defeated the Terriers 4-1 to win their fourth straight. Zach Cain had a pair of goals meanwhile Cory King and Gulenchyn would score as well.
