DUNDEE TIGERS 4 NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD 5
NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD picked up a huge away win on Tayside to stop the momentum built up by Dundee Tigers in recent weeks.
The Auchenharvie came from two goals behind to climb the table in a massive win that sets them up nicely for Saturday’s visit by unbeaten Edinburgh Capitals.
But it started so disappointingly for them as Ross Bree opened the scoring then Kris Phillips doubled the lead shortly after to leave Wild stunned.
Alan Maitland pulled one back for the visitors, but Tigers restored their two-goal lead as Gary Warley, making his return to the club found the net and the home side were 3-1 up at the first break.
Maitland got his and Wild’s second during the second period before Ryan Parkin tied the game at three apiece and Dundee’s hopes of taking the points were in severe jeopardy.
However Paul Guilcher restored something of a slender lead to take them into the third period, but Wild showed in the final session they were far from finished.
Martin Cardno restored parity again before Maitland completed his hat-trick and a big win for the Ayrshire men, despite late pressure from Tigers that proved fruitless.
KILMARNOCK STORM 0 ABERDEEN LYNX 7
ABERDEEN LYNX moved level on points with second place Edinburgh Capitals after successfully blanking Kilmarnock Storm in a 7-0 away romp.
It took Barry Carnegie’s side until the second period to break the deadlock as Mark Laing scored on the powerplay before Jamie Vincent fired in a second as the Lynx had another man advantage.
The visitors took great heart from this breakthrough and by the second interval, were 4-0 up as Barry Carnegie scored twice to put Lynx in a comfortable position.
With five minutes to go, Laing added his second of the game before Storm’s Martin McPhail was kicked out of the game on a spearing offence.
From there, Aberdeen finished the game with aplomb as Sean Dyer and Iain Malcolm rounded things off on a successful night, continuing Kilmarnock’s woe at the foot of the SNL table.
