The line of Tristan Lemyre, Cole Rafuse and Alec Malo combined for 11-points as the Flin Flon Bombers beat the Humboldt Broncos 5-4 on the road on Thursday.
Lemyre was in on every goal, scoring one and setting up the other four, for a five point night. Rafuse and Malo each added a goal and two assists, while Mason Martin (1g-1a) and Billy Klymchuk added the others.
Jacob Delorme made 40/44 saves in goal for the Bombers (22-6-4-0), who move five points up on Melfort for the Sherwood Division lead and second spot overall in the league. That’s the first of three game swing for Flin Flon, as they now head to Battlefords for two straight on Friday and Saturday.
Logan Foster (1g-1a), Max Gudnason, Tristan Shewchuk and Braiden Koran replied for the Broncos (15-3-3-2).
The Notre Dame Hounds had a big win over the team they’ll quite possibly need to catch in the new year to make the playoffs, stopping Kindersley’s eight game regulation unbeaten streak with a 5-2 win over the Klippers.
The Hounds (12-17-3-1) are now tied for 9th overall with Melville, four points back of Kindersley for a playoff spot.
Riley Kohonick stopped 30 of the 32 shots he faced on Thursday, and Kenzie MacKinnon scored twice. Cole Stevenson (1g-1a), Jared Hamm and Olivier Lepine (first SJHL goal) rounded out the scoring for the Hounds.
Liam Fraser and Scott McKenzie did the scoring for the Klippers (13-14-5-1) who had gone 5-0-3 over their previous eight games. They’ll continue on to Estevan (FRI) and Weyburn (SAT) this weekend.
