ABERDEEN LYNX 2 KIRKCALDY KESTRELS 9

DOUBLES from Conor Duncan, Liam Cassidy and Sean Cochrane put Kirkcaldy Kestrels back on track as they demolished Aberdeen Lynx 9-2 in the North East.

Cassidy opened the scoring in the first, but was cancelled out by Jordan Leyden before the end of the period.

But the middle session is where the team from Fife really kicked on, with Duncan, Matthew Farmer and Cochrane making life more comfortable.

Although Leyden fired in his second, Cassidy and Jay Duncan notched further goals to make it 6-2 by the second period, with Cochrane, Robbie Summers and Conor Duncan wrapping things up in the third.

The result kept the Lynx in third place as Kestrels handed them their first home league defeat of this season.

KILMARNOCK STORM 3 MORAY TYPHOONS 8

MORAY TYPHOONS made it three in a row while Kilmarnock are still scrambling for their first league points after the men from Elgin took away an 8-3 victory.

Fraser Munro had Moray in front, to give them a first period lead, before a double from Joe Durkacz put them in a comfortable position, which was further enhanced by Kevin Russell, Steven Mackin and Munro with a second.

Storm began to make a comeback through two from Steven Gaughan and one from Craig McKenzie in the early throes of the third period.

But John McLeman’s side completed the job with another two by Kevin Russell, to complete his hat-trick, making it seven goals in two games for the Typhoons.

The result meant Moray climbed to sixth in the SNL table, going above Solway Sharks in the standings.

TOM WATSON’S goal in the second period proved to be the difference as Solway Sharks edged this seven-goal match as they inflicted a home defeat on the Wild.

A swashbuckling first period saw four of those goals as both teams matched each other, with Iain Crocket and Ryan Sarginson putting the home side two up before Conor Smith and Watson’s first pulling them level.

Simon Robertson put the Dumfries men in front four minutes into the second period before Watson’s second proved to be the game winning goal.

Daniel Abercrombie pulled one back for Wild in the third period to reduce the deficit to one, but the Sharks held out to claim their first away league win of the season.
