Flin Flon Bombers Week Recap: Powered By Canadian Tire

The Flin Flon Bombers had themselves a very busy week playing in 4 games.

Earlier in the week, the Bombers attended the annual SJHL Showcase in Warman, Saskatchewan and were able to win both games against the Weyburn Red Wings and Melville Millionaires.

In the win over Weyburn, rookie forwards Liam Bridger and Alexi Sylvestre would score their first career SJHL goals. Meanwhile, local product Joey Lies would record his first career SJHL point. Bombers goaltender Harmon Laser-Hume was solid in net once again, making 30 saves in the 4-1 win.

The Bombers would have a quick turnaround the next day playing at 1:30 PM against the Millionaires. Rookie Bombers goaltender Kenneth Marquart would make his SJHL debut and defenceman Dryden Jeannot’s first period goal would be his first career SJHL goal. Despite blowing a 4-2 lead in the third period, Jaxon Martens would score the overtime winner less than a minute into overtime. The line of Cole Duperreault, Jaxon Martens and Jaeden Mercier would combine for 9 points in the win.

Four nights later the Bombers would the Nipawin Hawks. The Hawks defeated the Bombers 5-2 less than 3 weeks ago. Nipawin would get out to a 2-0 lead after the first period. The Bombers would then take the lead 3-2 after the second period on goals by Cole Duperreault, Alexi Sylvestre and Reece Richmond. Slyvestre would get his second of the night in the third period, which would end up being the games winning goal in the 4-3 win.

In the final game of the week, the Bombers would take on the undefeated Humboldt Broncos. Jeremi Tremblay would open the scoring halfway through the second period on the power play. It looked like the Bombers were going to seal the deal until late in the third period the Broncos would score on a 6 on 4 with less than three minutes remaining in the third period. Broncos forward Xavier Roy would convert on a 2 on 1 to win the game in overtime.

The Bombers currently sit in 3rd place in the overall SJHL standings with a 4-1-1-1 record.
