SNL:
DUNDEE TIGERS 7 MORAY TYPHOONS 1

MORAY TYPHOONS are without a win in five now and remain in the bottom two places as Dundee Tigers opened up a three point gap in the play-off places.

James McLeman’s men were still very much in the game after the first period, despite conceding from John Robertson, who struck on 13 minutes to give the home side the lead.

Michael Ferguson put Elgin on level terms on the powerplay just minutes into the restart, but Tigers started to accelerate and were 4-1 ahead by the 40 minute mark.

Scott Marr’s shorthanded goal put them in front then Daniel Topping and Grant Reekie each struck and a healthy advantage had been built.

Ross Bree and Mark McLeod struck within a couple of minutes of each other in the third to effectively kill the game off as a contest before Topping nabbed his second to apply the icing on the cake.

SNL:
ABERDEEN LYNX 2 DUNDEE COMETS 3

CRAIG FINDLAY’S winner in the third period ensured a four-point league double as Aberdeen Lynx were beaten again by Dundee Comets.

The Tayside outfit had stunned Barry Carnegie’s men in a 5-0 win just a couple of weeks before so to take the points in front of a sell-out home crowd was certainly all the more sweeter.

Lynx had the better start of the two sides when they went in two goals up after the first 20 minutes, with Mark Laing and Christian Johnson scoring within a couple of minutes of each other to start things positively.

However the night started to turn sour as Comets began to claw their way back, finding the net just 41 seconds after the restart when Lewis McIntosh got his name on the scoresheet.

Robbie Hill then levelled the game off with a goal at the other end of the middle period as Lynx couldn’t take their chances to keep hold of their lead.

Then Findlay struck five minutes into the third period to claim the win for the visitors and make it three wins in their last four, while the Lynx have now lost their last three.
