Seahawks 5-3 Steeldogs
The puck dropped in Hull, the Steeldogs and Seahawks resumed their rivalry.
After getting settled early, the Dogs took a lead through a Vulkanovs goal. Following this Hull began to be more involved and Crowe was called upon to stand tall. A good sequence of end to end hockey saw the home side with more shots on goal. Brammer benefitted from a quick turn of pace to pop up for number 2. Sheffield were then on the receiving end of a couple of penalties and Svec capitalised followed by Chamberlain as the buzzer sounded. 2-2
Dmitri Zimozdra is in net for the second period; he gets a couple of early touches of the puck and he’s in the zone. At the other end McLaughlin is under pressure and makes a couple of consecutive saves. The physicality began to rise during the middle period. Both teams giving the opposing goalies some work to do, but lacking just lacking the final touch. 2-2
The third period began with an early goal for Hull, Chamberlain the scorer.
The Steeldogs didn’t take too long to get back on level terms, Vulkanovs with the equaliser. In fact the Assistant Captain was turning Hull’s defence inside out at this point of the game.
But from here on in, the home team began to take more control. The Dogs gave up a 3 on 1 for Hull to score with ease. Svec capitalised on the break and with time ticking down, Ulrick scored an empty net goal to complete the game. Seahawks 5-3 Steeldogs
Man of the match awards went to Svec and Zimozdra.
