Bombers get back in the win column with an 11-9 victory. Buoyed by a 6-1 final stanza, the Baltimore Bombers (3-2) picked up a valuable win over the Virginia Golden Bears (1-4) in a Maryland IBLA showdown. Jordan Hall and netminder Julian Flores were the highlights of this one. Flores was outstanding in the second portion of the game allowing only 1 goal in the final 22:15. “Team showed great poise, big come back victory.” Gushed Head Coach/GM, Larry Fila.
To The Action
Thomas Bethune (1g) got the Bombers on the board at the 2:38 mark. 1:02 later Brian Beatson (1g) leveled the score. Matt Hickman (3g) with a pair and a single tally from David Solomon (1G) boasted the Bears to a 4-1 lead. The four-run was snuffed out by a Josh Sanchez (3g,1a) marker at 18:57 to close the opening twenty minutes with the Golden Bears holding a 4-2 lead. Michael McCormick (1g) and Ryan McLaughlin (1 g) converting a pretty pass from Clay Batley (1a). Hickman hit rope again and the Bears were growling with a 7-2 lead.
Sanchez stopped the run but it took :49 for Javin Re (1g) to light the lamp for the 8-3 lead. Whatever Fila said on the bench, lit a fire under the Bombers. The entire complexion of the contest turned the Baltimore way. Quinn Tallent (1g) followed fifty-eight ticks later by Jordan Hall (4g) brought to Bombers within three goals at 8-5 after two periods.
The onslaught continued thanks to a pair from Hall at 5:24 and 9:13, Ben Todd (2g) converting a Sanchez pass, Sanchez and Hall’s fourth switched the lead the Baltimore way, and with 2:50 left we had a 10-8 game. Michael Brown (1g) brought it 10-9 with :51 to play. Todd put the dagger in the heart of any comeback and the curtain closed on the thrilling 11-9 contest. Bombers get back in the win column.
