PAISLEY PIRATES 10 MORAY TYPHOONS 1

FOUR players picked up two goals each as Paisley Pirates romped to a comfortable double figures victory over Moray Typhoons.

Scott Cowan had the home side in front in the first four minutes as they set about making a statement of intent, but found themselves level as Joe Durkasz scored for the visitors minutes later.

But Paisley retook the lead heading into the first break as Liam Riddell smashed home a chance to make it 2-1 after 20.

The Pirates kicked on and Mark Hassan’s goal triggered a change in goalie for the Typhoons before Stuart Miller and Hassan again with his second effectively killed the game off.

Ian Turley’s side cranked things up even more in the third as Richard Thorp and another from Riddell turned a comfortable lead into a rout before Chris Wilson added number eight.

Miller and Wilson put the icing on the cake as the Pirates grabbed their biggest victory of the season in a one-sided contest.

SNL:
NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD 5 EDINBURGH CAPITALS 4

RYAN SARGINSON’S winner 70 seconds from time stunned Edinburgh Capitals as the former leaders suffered a first league loss of the campaign.

The result keeps the Caps a point behind Kirkcaldy Kestrels at the top of the table while Wild have climbed their way to fourth, following up Saturday’s 5-4 win at Dundee Tigers.

Joel Gautschi opened the scoring in the opening minutes, but North Ayrshire turned things around by the end of the first as Koni Yates and Ryan Parkin both found the net.

Michael Ireland levelled for the Caps early in the second, but Martin Cardno restored Wild’s lead before Mark Paterson tied the game at 3-3 after two periods.

The game could have gone one way or another and when David Thomson struck for the home side inside the final four minutes, they thought they had it until Ross Hay equalised 20 seconds later.

But Sarginson popped up to take victory for North Ayrshire on a massive night that sees them climb to fourth in the table, just four points from top spot.
