DALROD Peterborough Islanders – 5
Chelmsford Warriors – 4
In a top of the table clash, with the Islanders searching for their 7th straight win against a Chelmsford side that were unbeaten in the league with 9 wins out of 9.
A physical start to the game, with some big hits thrown in for good measure. It would be Chelmsford to start the scoring off on a 5 on 3 power play. With Callum Worthington Evans and Dale Jowett in the box, Chelmsford were able to take advantage of the extra space .Brandon Ayliffe added the finishing touch to a well worked power play goal just before the 10 minute mark. Islanders then had to kill off a long 5 on 3 chance to keep the scoreline the same, as Bradley Moore and Craig Wallis took a trip to the penalty box. With just over 4 minutes to play in the period the Islanders levelled the game, with some nice work from Craig Wallis to keep the puck in the zone, Conor Pollard passed the puck to Nathan Pollard, who caught the Chelmsford goalkeeper by surprise and let go of a well placed shot through Phillips five hole and go into the period break with the scores level at 1-1. End of period shots were 10 on Dan Lane and 15 on Sonny Phillips.
