The Flin Flon Bombers are heading home with four of a possible eight points from a southern road swing, beating Weyburn Saturday night to add another win.

The Bombers' recent winning streak was crushed by a loss to Estevan Oct. 20, then again by a loss to Notre Dame in Wilcox Oct. 22. Flin Flon started early, picking up early first period goals from Mason Kaspick and Zak Smith, but momentum swung the other way shortly after. Notre Dame tied the game up in the second and pumped two more goals home for good measure, seeing Connor Nolan score twice for the Doggies and Oliver Band and Johno Hoins add singles. The final horn blew with a 4-2 Bomber loss. 

Max Hildebrand took the L for Flin Flon after making 26 saves, while Austin Elliot stood tall for the Hounds, making 40 saves.

The Bombers picked up a big 6-4 win over Weyburn to end a gruelling southern road trip with two key points.

Flin Flon's Zak Smith opened the scoring late in the first, with Weyburn's Benji Rutkai replying soon after to send both teams to the dressing rooms tied, but Cole Duperreault didn't feel like keeping the game deadlocked for very long. Duperreault scored to make it 2-1 only 24 seconds into the second, giving the Bombers a lead they've never give up. Jaxon Martens scored in the latter half of the period, with another Duperreault goal making it 4-1 Bombers.

Martens also scored a second goal early in the third, putting the game well out of reach. Weyburn's Jackson Hassman and Dante Ballarin each scored in the third, bringing the host Red Wings within two, but Jeremi Tremblay added an empty netter for good measure. Nik Sombrowski scored with less than a minute to go for Weyburn, but the result was long since spoken for.

Add another win to the list for Cal Schell - he made 21 saves to send the Bombers home happy, while Weyburn netminder Joe Young stopped 35 pucks.

The Bombers, now recovering from four games on the road in five nights, will have almost a week between games before playing the Yorkton Terriers at home Oct. 29. The Bombers play six of their next seven games on the road, the sole exception being a road trip to Melfort Nov. 3 to face the Mustangs.
