Dundee Tigers 2 Paisley Pirates 2
DUNDEE TIGERS and Paisley Pirates left with honours even as they played out a 2-2 draw in an enthralling contest on Tayside.
Stuart Barnett opened the scoring inside the first ten minutes as the Tigers looked to vanquish their demons of losing 3-2 to Solway Sharks last week.
Then Daniel Topping swooped with a powerplay goal early in the second period to give the Tigers a two-goal cushion as they looked to hold out.
Graham McCamley however got the breakthrough as Pirates reduced the arrears as they looked to kick on and try to nick something from the Tigers.
Tom Johnston’s finish with six and a half minutes to go levelled the game off and set up a grandstand finish as both teams looked for the winner.
But it didn’t come and Paisley returned to the west of Scotland with a share of the spoils on their first league outing of the campaign.
Kirkcaldy Kestrels 19 North Ayrshire Wild 0
NINE different scorers for Kirkcaldy Kestrels made it an emphatic night as the SNL champions annihilated North Ayrshire Wild in a 19-0 victory.
It was another bad night for an Ayrshire team in the SNL as Wild just couldn’t get near the Kestrels, who sent a strong statement with this result.
Chad Smith, Robin Floyd, Martyn Simpson, Conor Duncan and Liam Cassidy all had a goal each by the end of the first period as Kirkcaldy started as they meant to go on.
Simpson added his second early in the middle session followed by one from Andy Findlay, two from Cassidy for his hat-trick and one apiece from Jay Duncan and Daryl Venters.
Even at 11-0 up after two periods, the Kestrels didn’t take their foot off the gas as Conor Duncan and Smith completed their hat-tricks in the third period.
Further to that, goals from Graeme Allan, Floyd, Venters and Findlay made it as one-sided a contest as you could get in ice hockey this weekend.
