Bombers Lose to Trenton

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

The Trenton Devils defeated the Dayton Bombers 4-1 Friday night at Sovereign Bank Arena in front of 2,474 fans.

Dayton forward Brad Bonello took advantage on the power play for the Bombers scoring in the first period for the only goal of the period and the only goal of the game for the Bombers.

The Bombers were without two top players Friday night, center Yannick Tifu has been loaned to Albany (AHL) and forward Matt Beaudoin has been loaned to Iowa Stars (AHL).

An interesting fact is that Brad Bonello had the worse +/- on ice time for the Bombers, with -3, even though he scored the only goal for the Bombers Friday night.

Trenton center Trevor Kell scored in the second period scoring the only goal of the second period on a power play to tie the score at 1.

Trenton would score the other 3 goals all in third period. Colin Pepperall scored the go –ahead goal in third period with 5:06 left to go to give Trenton the lead. Dayton pulled its goalie late in the game and Trenton scored the other two goals on an empty net to close out the game.

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

Dayton, Ohio -The Dayton Bombers hockey team defeated the Wheeling Nailers, 4-2 in front of 3,221 fans at the Ervin J Nutter Center Friday night.

When the Bombers scored first, less than 3 minutes into the game, it appeared that it was going to be a high-scoring contest. However, that was the only goal for both teams in the first period of play.

The Nailers outplayed the Bombers in the second period when they scored two consecutive goals to take the lead in the game. The Bombers leading scorer, Yanick Tifu, responded by scoring a goal on the Bombers power play to tie the game 2-2 before the end of the second period.

During the third period, play was stopped for an extended duration when one of the Wheeling players was injured and left a pool of blood on the ice. Even though it was an inadvertent stick in the face, the Wheeling players appeared very agitated. However, the Bombers went on to outplay the Nailers and score two more goals to “nail” the victory.
