The Bombers couldn't get much going Thursday night in Humboldt, losing their second straight game to the Broncos.
Humboldt scored early and kept up pressure, giving Flin Flon a 5-2 loss.
Flin Flon fell behind early. A turnover in the Bomber end by Lucas Fry was picked off by the Broncos' Matthew Van Blaricom, who fed Ben Kotylak on the side of the net for a wide-open net goal. That lead would be extended by Jacob Boucher, who went on an end-to-end rush, blew past Cole Tanchuk on the outside and beat Harmon Laser-Hume, making it 2-0 Broncos.
Jaeden Mercier would snap the Bomber powerplay's recent dry spell with a one-timer slapshot from the point in the final minute of the first, sending both teams into the dressing room with the game at 2-1 Humboldt.
The Broncos would restore the two-goal lead very early in the second with a powerplay goal of their own, with Spencer Bell getting his body on the puck after a Humboldt point shot. Another Bronco goal would come midway through the frame, courtesy of Xavier Roy, getting a deflection past Laser-Hume after the Bombers tried - unsuccessfully - to clear the zone.
Laser-Hume would be pulled following goal number four, replaced by backup Kenneth Marquart. The Bombers' offence would get its mojo back a bit near the end of the period, with Jeremi Tremblay picking up a slick turnaround pass from Mercier and slamming home a second powerplay goal.
The Broncos' Ethan Zielke added an empty netter to ice the win late in the third period, which included no further offence.
Humboldt goalie Jared Picklyk got his first win in the Broncos' net, making 36 saves, while Laser-Hume would be stuck with the L, having made 10 stops. Marquart saved all nine shots he faced in relief.
The Bombers will continue a weekend road trip in Kindersley with games against the Klippers Friday and Saturday.
