Bombers season ends with 4-1 loss in game seven

The Storm got the scoring going early, as Jalen Price finished a feed on the doorstep high over the glove of Callum Tung from a pass behind the net from Nolan Corrado at 2:42 of the first. Less than two minutes later the Bombers answered, as Robbie Steel blocked a shot and chased down a loose puck to skate in alone on Nick Peters where he buried a shot high glove side to make it 1-1 just 4:09 into the game. The Bombers went to the penalty box sooner afterwards where they took the lead back on a Shaw Cathcart marker assisted by Davis Frank and Cody Savey at 5:50 of the first. The Storm built their lead to 3-1 with 4:01 to play in the period, assisted by Jalen Price.

Like in game six, the second period saw no scoring and the Storm carried the 3-1 lead into the third period.

The score held into the back half of the final period, when the Bombers earned a man advantage with under seven minutes to play. They used their time out, and threw everything they had at the Storm, but couldn’t bury a chance to get back into the game. The Storm would complete the scoring less than 20 seconds after killing it off, with Ben Coghlan scoring at 15:46 to make it a 4-1 final score.

Final shots were 48-14 Storm, with Callum Tung taking the loss while earning 2nd star honours while Nick Peters earned the win. The Bombers went 0 for 2 on the power play while the Storm went 1 for 1.

With the win, the Storm move on to the VIJHL North Division final series against the Oceanside Generals.

With the loss, the Bombers inaugural season ends in heartbreaking fashion. When the dust settles, one has to think that everyone involved in the franchise’s first season will hold their heads high for their achievements, efforts, sacrifices and memories made.
