The Flin Flon Bombers played host to the Melville Millionaires in a pair of weekend games and after dropping two shootout losses at the SJHL Showcase the weekend before, the Bombers got back in the W column taking two from the Mills.

Five different goal scorers hit the sheet, with Caleb Moretz (Fairbanks, AK) got the lone goal in the second period with his second of the season before Daylan Marchi (Lethbridge, AB) and rookie Dawson McKenzie (Winnipeg, MB) each scored their first of the season to start the third.

Reigning SJHL Rookie of the Month Chrystopher Collin (Bois De FIllion, QC) would score his seventh of the season before Ethan Daniels (Fairbanks, AK) rounded out the scoring with his second.

Saturday night continued for the home side as the Bombers scored seven goals on the Mills and goalie Brenden Newton made 23 saves for his first shutout of the season, helping the club to a 7-0 win.
