Giants Get Off To A Flyer With 3-0 Cup Win In Fife
The Stena Line Belfast Giants travelled to Scotland on Saturday to take on the Fife Flyers Challenge Cup Group A knowing a win would bring them closer to clinching the group.
Michael Forney was a healthy scratch with Darryl Lloyd and Chris Higgins returning to the line-up from injury. Higgins, who had been missing through injury since September, scored the Giantsâ€™ first goal of the night to give them the lead over their hosts at 21:18.
In the third period, Giants captain Adam Keefe added his third of the season at 47:58 and his team’s second of the night to extend the visitorsâ€™ lead to 2-0.
And with 43 seconds remaining, Darryl Lloyd also got his name on the scoresheet, assisted by Chris Higgins and making it 3-0 and a shutout for netminder Stephen Murphy.
Both sides will now travel back to Belfast to clash at the SSE Arena on Sunday, face-off at 5pm. Secure your seats NOW byÂ clicking hereÂ to visit Ticketmaster Online or purchase in person from allÂ Ticketmaster OutletsÂ orÂ The SSE Arena Box Office or over the phone by calling (028) 9073 9074.
