DUNDEE COMETS 5 ABERDEEN LYNX 0
DUNDEE COMETS made it a night to remember as they swept Aberdeen Lynx aside in an assured display, leaving Barry Carnegie’s side stunned in their first game of 2016.
It’s now one win in four for Lynx, but they would have expected more from this game as their status in the top half of the table was taken away by an excellent Comets performance.
Ben Edmonds celebrated his call-up to the GB Under 18’s World Championship squad with the opening goal as the home side forged ahead.
Then the floodgates had opened when Robert Brown and Willie Nicolson added to the score, with Dundee opening up a healthy lead by the end of the first period.
Lynx tried to prize open the Comets back line, but to no avail and the home side continued in the same vein in the third by scoring two more to kill the contest off and take the points.
Ryan Thomson scored on the powerplay with Ross Johnston applying number five as the Comets got back to winning ways on home ice.
KILMARNOCK STORM 4 NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD 6
NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD kept up their excellent run of form to stay second place as they defeated Kilmarnock Storm 6-4 in an Ayrshire derby.
The result keeps them within touching distance of Kirkcaldy Kestrels while Storm went into Sunday’s game at Paisley Pirates still looking for their first point of the season.
Ryan Parkin’s opening goal for Wild was soon wiped out as Adam Stuart and Michael Chubb turned things around to give Storm an unusual lead.
But normal service was resumed as Iain Crockett, David Thomson and Ross Couborough all found the net in the second period as Wild were 4-2 ahead after 40 minutes.
Colin Henning effectively killed Killie off with a fifth early in the third with Martin Cardno making it six, although Kilmarnock hit back with two late finishes from Alasdair Brown and Myles Watson.
