SNL:
DUNDEE TIGERS 4 ABERDEEN LYNX 8

ABERDEEN LYNX picked up their second league win of the season as they obtained revenge for their Autumn Cup elimination with an 8-4 win at Dundee Ice Arena.

Mark Laing opened the scoring, with Iain Malcolm joining him on the scoresheet for Lynx before Ross Bree pulled one back by the end of the second period.

It was goals galore in the third session as Ross McIntosh, a second from Laing and one apiece from Callum Smith and Jordan Leyden sent Aberdeen into a 6-1 lead.

Tigers closed the gaps through goals from Paul Guilcher and Grant Reekie, but another from Leyden and Laing to complete his hat-trick made the lead unassailable for the visitors.

Guilcher’s second wrapped the scoring for the game, but it was Lynx that took the honours on a good night’s work for them.

SNL:
KILMARNOCK STORM 4 KIRKCALDY KESTRELS 9

CONOR DUNCAN hit six goals and Allan Anderson hit three as Kirkcaldy Kestrels romped to victory at The Galleon over Kilmarnock Storm.

The home side went ahead through Ian Crockatt before Martin McPhail added a second to put them two up inside the opening five minutes.

Kestrels came surging back though as Duncan hit his first two before G Park restored Storm’s lead. Duncan promptly added his hat-trick goal to bring the Kirkcaldy men level.

Anderson put the visitors in front, but Jardine Wallace levelled things off. However the SNL champions turned it on and Anderson had completed his hat-trick before the end of the second period.

Then Duncan struck another three in the third period to kill the Ayrshire side off as Kirkcaldy closed the gap to two points on leaders Edinburgh Capitals following this win.

SCOTTISH CUP 2nd ROUND:
MORAY TYPHOONS 0 EDINBURGH CAPITALS 5

EDINBURGH CAPITALS confirmed their place in the Scottish Cup semi finals with a comfortable 5-0 win over Moray Typhoons in Elgin.

James McLeman’s side kept the Caps at bay for the first period, but they were breached in the second period as Ross Hay opened the scoring, followed by Joel Gautschi with another this season.

The Caps twisted the knife in the third period with three more goals as they progressed in the competition they won last season.

Mark Paterson scored twice in the final session, with Hay picking up his second of the game in between as Edinburgh started the defence of their title in the best possible way.
