Bracknell Bees 2-6 Peterborough Phantoms
The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms sealed a four point weekend with a comprehensive victory over the Bracknell Bees.
Will Weldon gave Phantoms the lead with just under five minutes played after tipping in Tom Norton’s blue line effort.
Owen Griffiths doubled the advantage after 14 minutes, before Leigh Jamieson made it three, just over a minute later.
Norton did eventually get his own name on the scoresheet, with a power play goal from the blue line after 34 minutes.
Phantoms were presented with a big chance to extend their lead further, when Bees player coach Scott Spearing received a 5+game penalty for checking to the head.
And Phantoms made it count, when Nathan Salem shot the puck off the back of Bees goalie Alex Mettam, to score Phantoms’ second power play goal of the evening.
Goal six of the evening for the Phantoms was scored by Glenn Billing, who took a pass from Taylor Romeo to score on the breakaway.
Euan King was denied his shut out when Jan Bendik notched the opening goal of the game for the Bracknell Bees.
Matt Foord scored shortly after from the blue line, but the Phantoms victory was never in doubt.
