Bombers Drop Duds in Loss to Storm

The Port Alberni Bombers suffered a tough loss to the Campbell River Storm by a score of 5-2.

From the start of the game, the Bombers fell behind early. The Storm went on the board first before the halfway mark of the opening frame to make it 1-0.

But Jackson Payeur (2) would tie the game 1-1 on the powerplay, but it wouldn’t last long as the Storm would respond shortly after with a powerplay goal of their own to make it 2-1 Storm heading into intermission.

In the second period, the Storm would continue to pour it on the Bombers. The Storm would score two more goals, once of which, was on the powerplay and would take a 4-1 lead.

But Brady McIsaac (9) would lessen the blown with a solo effort to make it a 4-2 game going into the second intermission.

In the third, the Storm would add more insult to injury and would make it a 5-2 game and it would remain that way until the final buzzer.

The final shot totals were 46-24 for the Storm. The Bombers also went 1-4 on the powerplay and the Storm were 2-4 with the man advantage.
