It was another great game between the Flin Flon Bombers and Battlefords North Stars that came down to the wire. In the end, it was Justin Lies scoring the game-winning goal with six minutes remaining to help vault the Bombers to a 4-2 win. This was the North Stars first regulation loss in 16 games. Carter Anderson also had a big night for the Bombers, finding the back of the net twice and adding an assist in Flin Flon’s 34th win of the season.

The league will now be off until Friday, February 2nd when 10 teams return to action.

However, 60 players and coaches will be off to Winnipeg on Monday for the annual SJHL/MJHL Showcase which will begin on Tuesday, January 30th. Stay tuned to & the SJHL social media platforms to stay up to date with everything from the Showcase.
