Autumn Cup Semi Final 2nd Leg:
DUNDEE TIGERS 2 DUNDEE COMETS 0 (Tigers won 2-0 on aggregate)

A DOUBLE from Kris Phillips booked Dundee Tigers a place in this season’s Autumn Cup Final after they overcame their city rivals, Dundee Comets.

A goalless first leg made it a one-game series as both teams looked to claim a place against current holders, Edinburgh Capitals or Paisley Pirates, who play their last four games in November.

Phillips popped up with the opener eight and a half minutes in when he redirected Ian Carstairs’ shot past Matthew Michie to give them the lead.

Comets outshot Tigers in the first couple of periods, but still couldn’t make their way past the last line of defence as time began to run out on them.

Then Phillips confirmed the home team’s place in the final with a finish from the back post, as Scott Geddes and John Robertson picked up assists.

SNL:
MORAY TYPHOONS 12 KILMARNOCK STORM 1

HARRY FERGUSON’S hat-trick and two goals each from Kevin Russell, Fraser Munro and Gavin Millar claimed a first league win for Moray Typhoons in emphatic style.

Munro opened the scoring with Ferguson, Russell, Nik McLennan, Russell again and another from Munro had the home side six goals up without replay after 16 minutes.

Martin McPhail pulled one back, but Typhoons scorched even further as Ferguson and Millar made it 8-1 after two periods, effectively killing the game off as a contest.

Scott Ramsay made it nine before Ferguson completed his treble, followed by Michael Ferguson and Millar to finish off a great night for the Elgin side.

Plus it was a good night for Steven Mackin, who made five assists to help his team further as they left Storm as the only team still to register an SNL point.

SNL:
ABERDEEN LYNX 5 PAISLEY PIRATES 4

JORDAN LEYDEN’S winner in the third period proved to be enough as Aberdeen Lynx moved into third place following a narrow 5-4 win over Paisley Pirates.

The visitors went two up early on as Liam Riddell and David Orr found the net before Christian Johnson hit back for the Lynx, with Leyden’s first levelling the game.

Scott Cowan restored the lead for Paisley on the powerplay, but Sean Dyer equalised, pulling Aberdeen level yet again in what turned into a fascinating contest.

Orr’s second restored the Pirates’ advantage just before the end of the second period, but Lynx turned the game around to take the points through Jonathan Hogan and Leyden, who tied things up.
