Cam Blair, Brody Robinson each scored their third of the season and Spencer Mault notched his first as a Bomber, helping the Flin Flon Bombers defeat the Nipawin Hawks last night, 3-1, in Nipawin.
Blair opened the scoring seven minutes in the first off a feed from Dallan Hall beating starting Hawks goalie Davis Jones. Mault picked up the other assist.
Robinson would score the eventual game winner just before the midway point of the second, from Blair and Konrad Litke.
Goalie Devin Buffalo, coming off of back to back shutouts, had the streak snapped late in the second off the stick of Brendan Hopkins. Buffalo made 31 saves for his third straight win.
Flin Flon kept Jones busy in the Hawks net firing 36 shots his way.
Mault scored the insurance marker midway through the third from Greg Wiwcharuk and Landon Hiebert.
