Islanders Stall Racers Engines...
Following a disappointing show at Invicta, the Peterborough DALROD Islanders were set to face London racers who they had previously tied with 6 - 6. Believing this was going to be a battle from the opening faceoff the Peterborough DALROD Islanders Shaun Yardley lit the lamp early and lit the lamp often with 6 goals going passed Ricky Young in the first period.
Not happy with the first period netminding Racers changed their netminder giving Ian Sheppard a chance in net, but this could not stop the haemorrhage between the pipes, scoring 3 more goals in the space of one minute and four seconds. With a comfortable lead Islanders let the foot off the gas for a short time, allowing Racers to get two goals back before ending the period with a 10th goal closing the period 10 - 2.
With such a lead Head Coach Stevie Johnson gave Dan Lane the rest of the evening off and gave Simon Price his first chance of the season to see some time. With an early barrage of shots from Racers trying to score passed a cold netminder Price stood tall and stopped all nine shots, while the rest of the team continued to put shots on target and in the back of the net.
In the dying seconds of the game Racers Mason Webster decided grabbed hold of Sam Barlow in a scrum around the net asking for trouble, and that’s what Barlow delivered landing shot after shot on mason before the fight went to the ground.
