Kilmarnock Storm 2 Edinburgh Capitals 14
JOEL GAUTSCHI fired in a whopping EIGHT goals and assisted in three more as Edinburgh Capitals romped to a 14-2 win at Kilmarnock Storm.
The league leaders romped to victory in style to maintain their 100% record at the top of the table as the Storm just couldn’t keep up with them.
The Caps were five up by the end of the first period, with Gautschi scoring four of them and Callum Boyd getting on the scoresheet against his old club.
Gautschi added his fifth early in the second before Elliott Young got Killie on the scoresheet with their first goal of the night.
But it didn’t slow down the Edinburgh juggernaut as Boyd added his second, Ross Hay weighed in with a couple and Gautschi took the score into double figures, after Adam Stuart netted for the home team.
More was to follow and the Caps wrapped things up with Sean Donaldson and Kieran Black joining in the fun along with Gautschi’s seventh and eighth of the night to wrap up an emphatic win in Ayrshire.
Solway Sharks 2 Aberdeen Lynx 3
THREE goals in the first ten minutes proved to be more than enough for Aberdeen Lynx as they edged Solway Sharks in an entertaining game in Dumfries.
Sean Dyer gave Barry Carnegie’s side the best possible start with a goal in the first 30 seconds before Fraser MacEachran added a second just before the sixth minute.
Ross McIntosh put Lynx 3-0 up shortly after and for a spell, it looked as though Solway were in big danger of being on the wrong end of a heavy scoreline.
However they rallied and Michael Brunton’s powerplay goal in the second period gave them a lifeline back into the game as they reduced the deficit to two.
But Michael Corbett’s finish a minute from time proved to be too little too late as Aberdeen return to the North East with the full two points.
