Autumn Cup Quarter Final 2nd Leg –
Kilmarnock Storm 2 Paisley Pirates 8 (Paisley win 13-4 on aggregate)

A HAT-TRICK from Mark Hassan and two from Fraser Campbell set Paisley Pirates on the road to an Autumn Cup semi final showdown with current holders Edinburgh Capitals.

Although 5-2 ahead from last week’s first leg, Campbell’s brace and one each from Mark Hassan and Ian Turley in the first period killed the tie off, despite Ryan Parkin netting for Storm.

Hassan completed his hat-trick with two in the second period, while Scott Wright found the net for the home team and it became something of a procession for the Pirates.

Scott Cowan and Graham McCamley rounded things off nicely as Paisley booked their last four place, despite playing both games away from home.

SNL –
Moray Typhoons 4 Kirkcaldy Kestrels 7

KIRKCALDY KESTRELS got their title defence off to the best possible start, despite trailing after the first 20 minutes in this game at Moray Typhoons.

The hosts were looking to make amends after losing 7-3 at Edinburgh Capitals last week, but found themselves behind when Robbie Summers opened the scoring inside six minutes.

Harry Ferguson pulled Moray level 90 seconds later only for Chad Smith to restore the Kestrels lead, but two from Steven Mackin – both on the powerplay – edged the Typhoon in front.

James Cunningham made it 3-3 early in the second, with Allan Anderson grabbing two shorthanded goals, either side of a Robin Floyd PP, putting the SNL champions 6-3 ahead.

Mackin completed his hat-trick, but Summers finished the scoring on the night to consign Moray to their second league defeat of the new campaign.
