Mils drop a 5-2 decision in fight filled game vs Flin Flon

The Melville Millionaires dropped the 2nd game of their 3 game in 3 nights road trip as they lost 5-2 to the Flin Flon Bombers on Saturday night. 

The Mils started off very slow for the 2nd straight night as in the opening 2 minutes the opposition would get on the board as Alex Smith would capitalize on a Millionaire turnover and jam it last Trevor Martin for his 17th of the season to make it 1-0. But the Mils would come back with a goal of their own as Mark Zvonkovic long shot from the point would hit the back of the net for his 1st as a Millionaire on the PP to tie things up at 1-1 after 20 minutes. 

In the 2nd, it would be the turning point of the game as the Bombers would get 3 goals in the first 7 minutes of the period off the sticks of Chris Rauckman, Dean Allison and Austin Calladine to push their lead to 4-1. The Mils would add one before the end of the 2nd, as Jaden Kreklewich would be Johnny on the spot and hammer home a rebound for his 1st SJHL goal to cut the deficit at 4-2. Then with 19 seconds remaining is where the action happened as a 5 man line brawl would break out that made both teams a little bit shorter for the 3rd. 

In the 3rd, the Mils would get an early 5 minute powerplay as Landon Farrell was slammed dangerously into the end boards hard from behind but the Mils would not be able to capitalize on it and Rauckman would be able to ice it late with an empty netter his 35th of the season to give the Bombers 5-2 victory.

Because of the lineup the Mils will be a little bit short handed I'm assuming because of the line up and the loss of captain Allen Kilback in the 1st, as they head to Melfort to finish up the roady on Sarurday. 

Elsewhere in the SJHL, 

Regan Seiferling had the lone goal as the Yorkton Terriers fell to those Melfort Mustangs 3-1. 

Dawson MacAuley was the games best player making 51 saves to keep his team in, while Travis Mayan had 2 goals and an assist to lead the way for the Mustangs.

The Terriers will go right back at it hosting Kindersley  tonight at 7:30  FAA. 

Over in the MJHL, 

The Swan Valley Stampeders got a point against the number 1 ranked team in the country as they fell 3-2 in overtime to the Portage Terriers. 

Bo Sigurdson and Tristan Mullin scored for the Stamps who got a 39 save performance from Graham Hunt in the loss. 

The Stamps/Terriers will go right back at it tonight at 7:30 from the Centennial Arena. 

The Wayway Wolverines also lost on Friday night as they dropped a 3-1 game to the visiting Winkler Flyers. 

Mitch Wiebe made 28 saves in the loss while Dylan Betteridge had the lone goal for the Wolverines.
