MORAY TYPHOONS 9 DUNDEE COMETS 3

KEVIN RUSSELL weighed in with four goals as Moray Typhoons picked up their second win of the season with an emphatic 9-3 victory over Dundee Comets.

The Typhoons captain led by example by opening the scoring in the first couple of minutes before Ryan Thomson found the net for the visitors later in the opening session.

Two more from Russell completed his hat-trick before Gavin Miller added another to give Moray a commanding lead, although Jamie Whitelaw pulled another back for the Comets before the second break.

Russell got his fourth early in the third, with Robert Brown matching it for Dundee, but the Typhoons blew the Tayside men away in that final period.

A goal each from Mike Ferguson, Harry Ferguson, Graham Ramshaw and Steven Mackin clinched victory in impressive style as the Elgin side moved into seventh place in the table.

NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD 12 KIRKCALDY KESTRELS 7

NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD got sweet revenge on Kirkcaldy Kestrels as Daniel Abercrombie’s four goals helped the Auchenharvie men to a fantastic 12-7 victory.

Just seven weeks after the SNL champions stunned Wild with a 19-0 drubbing, a much improved Ayrshire side finally got the chance to give as good as they’d got previously.

Scott Wright opened the scoring before Liam Cassidy levelled for the visitors, but after Allan Maitland had restored Wild’s lead, Kestrels hit twice through Robbie Summers and Iain Quinn to lead after the first.

Michael Dobson levelled for North Ayrshire, but Steven McDonald restored the visitors’ lead, making it 4-3, but the game turned again as Ryan Parkin, Colin Henning and Wright’s second made it 6-4 for the home side.

Jay Duncan pulled one back, but North Ayrshire restored the two-goal lead as Abercrombie struck his first to give the edge after two periods.

Matthew Farmer again brought Kirkcaldy to within one, but Wild found an extra gear as Abercrombie hit another three, along with Dobson’s second and one from Liam Brady to make it 12.

Allan Anderson’s goal late on proved to be nothing more than a consolation as the Ayrshire side romped to a 12-7 victory to move them into mid-table, while Kestrels remain four points adrift of the summit of the table.
