Braehead Clan 4 Fife Flyers 2

Both teams haven’t had the best of luck lately with both of them winning only once in their last seven league games. In a game that flowed from end to end throughout the victory was there for either team to take. After forty minutes of play and with nothing between the teams, a third goal from the Clan and then an insurance goal at 59.52 gave two much needed points.

There was nothing between the teams after the opening session with the teams sharing a goal between them. The home side opened the scoring with a strike from Shane Lust at 5.30. They looked as though they would hold onto this lead however the visitors restored equality at 18.06 with a goal from Derek Roehl.

The teams still couldn’t be separated in the second period, the Clan went in front for the second time with a strike from Tristan Harper at 24.08. However, the Flyers came back once again with a goal at 29.11 on the powerplay from Ned Lukacevic.

The third session was much the same as the first two sessions with neither team given anything away. The Clan took the lead for the third time as Kevin Bergin fired in with nine minute remaining. It was still there for either team, however it was the home team who collected the points as Joel Champagne netted the insurance goal with 8 second remaining.
