Melfort forward Colin Schmidt opened the scoring midway through the first, but Chrystopher Collin answered back for the Bombers a minute later, tying the game up. The Bombers grabbed the lead in the second, with Donavan Houle-Villeneuve and Calvon Boots each firing pucks past Mustangs starter Shawn Parkinson.

Isaac Jackson extended the lead to 4-1 Bombers with a third period goal. Melfort grabbed a late power play goal courtesy of Kenzie Arnold, but Houle-Villeneuve pumped in an empty netter to seal the win. A last-minute goal from Melfort's Nolan Kadachuk made the final score look nicer for the 'Stangs.

Jacob Delorme, playing his first game since creasemate Pierce Diamond was dealt at the league deadline, made 39 saves. Parkinson took an L for Melfort after a 23 save performance.

New Bomber Cade Kowalski, playing his first game with his new team, earned an assist in the matchup on Houle-Villeneuve's first goal. Two Melfort players, Gabe Odowichuk and Braeden Young, were assessed ten-minute misconducts in the second period for hits to the head, while Flin Flon's Tyler Higgins and Mustang Boedy Donald were ejected following a third period fight.

The two clubs will face off again Saturday night at the Whitney Forum.
