Bombers drop 6-2 decision to Wolves

The Bombers dropped their third straight VIJHL contest Sunday night at Juan De Fuca Arena to the Westshore Wolves.

The game was scoreless until the late stages of the first, when Westshore drew first blood on a Quintyn Sidaway tally assisted by Grady Nursey at 17:46 to make it 1-0 after 20 minutes.

The Bombers would tie the game at 1-1 on the power play on a Taylor Madsen goal 6:32 into the second, but the Wolves went to the power play and took the lead back 1:12 later, with Noah Hovde scoring from Blake Bentham. Another power play goal three minutes later from Elijah Goyer again assisted by Blake Bentham on the power play to lead 3-1. The Wolves added one more off the stick of Isaac Leik, with Bentham drawing his third assist of the game to make it 4-1 after 40 minutes.

Aidan See scored on the power play just short of seven minutes into the third to pull the Bombers back within two, with Brendan Almer assisting, but again the Wolves replied just 20 seconds later to make it 5-2, with Quintyn Sidaway scoring his second of the game, from Angus Allchin and Elijah Goyer assisting. The Wolves would complete the scoring just 1:22 later, as Brett Herle scored unassisted to make it a 6-2 final.

The Bombers were out shot 48-38 with Keelan Hondro and Andrew Palm being the goalies of record. Each team went 2 for 4 on the power play.

The Bombers next see action Wednesday night when they host the Campbell River Storm.
