Craig Peacock Fires Giants Into Final Lead
On Friday Night in front of well over 6,000 fans at the Odyssey Arena, the Stena Line Belfast Giants took a commanding lead in the Challenge Cup Final, winning 5-2 in the 1st leg. Man of the Match was Craig Peacock, who’s two early goals got the Giants off to a great start and he and his teammates never looked back,
“It was a great team performance and we set out what we wanted to achieve tonight – going into Nottingham with a lead, though we know its a difficult building to go into so we can’t be complacent.” said Peacock.
“We’ve been excited this week as we knew it was going to be a big game and a big crowd.”
The 2nd Leg of the Challenge Cup Final falls on Tuesday in Nottingham in what will be the biggest game of the season for both sides and Peacock is relishing the chance to play in the game, “It’s a chance to win another trophy, we’ve won two already this year and i’s another one we want to win. We want to stop Nottingham’s run in this competition and we’ve put ourselves in a good position to do it.”
