SNL:
ABERDEEN LYNX 2 EDINBURGH CAPITALS 2

TYLER PLEWS’ goal inside the last two minutes preserved Edinburgh Capitals’ unbeaten record in the SNL, but they were denied a return to the top of the table.

It was a great result for Aberdeen Lynx, who’s only negative should be the fact they couldn’t keep the win and can take great credit for a battling performance.

The Caps went in front with a short handed goal by Mark Paterson in the opening period, but Mark Laing levelled things during the second period to tie the game after 40 minutes.

Lynx grabbed the lead four minutes into the third period and held on valiantly as they looked to hand the Caps their first league defeat of the season.

But Plews popped up on the powerplay to claim a point for the visiting Murrayfield men, but it leaves them a point adrift of Kirkcaldy Kestrels although they have three games in hand.

SNL:
MORAY TYPHOONS 1 DUNDEE TIGERS 4

DUNDEE TIGERS moved five points clear of Kilmarnock Storm at the bottom of the league as they picked two big points and their fourth consecutive win.

They travelled to Elgin to face the Typhoons and only took four minutes to open the scoring as John Robertson was in the right place at the right time to finish off a rebound.

The visitors went two up soon after as Scott Marr darted forward to fire a wonderful shot past the home goalie to double their advantage.

Marr grabbed his second of the game and Tigers’ third during the second period as he deflected Eck Purves’ shot and the visitors had opened up a healthy lead.

Scott Ramsay bundled home the puck for Moray to give them a lifeline in the early part of the third period, but Paul Guilcher’s finish with six minutes to go confirmed the win and the points for the Tayside men.

SNL:
NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD 16 KILMARNOCK STORM 1

EIGHT goals conceded in the first period killed this game off for Kilmarnock Storm before it had even started as the bottom of the table side were crushed 16-1 by local rivals North Ayrshire Wild.

Colin Henning struck twice before Scott Wright, Ryan Parkin, two from Alan Maitland and one each from Kenny Fleetham and Lewis Manson had Wild eight up and cruising after 20 minutes.

They followed it up with goals from Ryan Sarginson and second finishes from Parkin, Wright followed by Maitland who completed his hat-trick by the end of the middle period.

Although Craig McKenzie scored a consolation for the Storm, North Ayrshire continued to be ruthless as Alan Gibson and Martin Cardno both added their names to the scoresheet.

Then Parkin and Wright completed their hat-tricks to complete a great night’s work for Wild, who moved to within three points of Dundee Comets in fourth place.
