The Waldeck Peterborough Phantoms completed a four point weekend by defeating the Bees on home ice on Sunday night.
Phantoms were without Brad Bowering, Duncan Speirs and Corey McEwen for the clash with the Bees, whilst Ryan Bainborough was given the nod to start in goal.
Bees started brightly and tried to get themselves on the board, but despite having a powerplay in the opening ten minutes, Bainborough dealt with everything that was thrown his way.
Phantoms then got a foothold and quickly hit the front, as Ralfs Circenis ripped an effort into the top corner to give Adam Goss no chance.
And when JJ Pitchley took a slashing penalty, Ales Padelek played a cross crease pass to the tape of Martins Susters, who smashed a one timer in to double the Phantoms’ advantage.
Phantoms went into the first intermission with a three goal lead, as a piece of stick handling brilliance from Lukas Sladkovsky saw him set up Circenis for his second of the night in the final minute of the frame.
The second period picked up in a similar fashion to the way the first ended, as Glenn Billing ripped an effort home to make it 4-0 at 20:13.
Bees did get on the board on the powerplay, though. With Circenis sitting a holding penalty, Brendan Walkom scored from close range to reduce the deficit back down to three.
But Phantoms took a four goal lead into the second break as Sladkovsky laid another chance on a plate, this time for Austin Mitchell-King to tap in from a matter of inches from goal.
The visitors got the third period scoring underway, as Josh Martin found the net from close range after some poor play in the Phantoms’ defensive zone.
And the Bees were right back in it with just under ten minutes to play, as JJ Pitchley blasted an effort into the back of Bainborough’s net.
But Billing secured the result in the closing moments, scoring a short handed empty net goal from his own defensive zone.
