Chelmsford Warriors – 0
DALROD Peterborough Islanders – 8
The DALROD Peterborough Islanders, bolstered with guest appearances from James White, Brad Moore, Scott Robson and Tom Stubley, closed in on the NIHL2 S league title last weekend with a trip to Essex to take on 2nd placed Chelmsford Warriors for the last time this season.
The 1st period started with intent as the Islanders took less than 90 seconds to get on the board as Clint Herring hit the twine first finishing off a rebound on the backhand at 1:27, assisted by N Long & Cetvertak. Further progress could have been slowed by a double minor on Jon Brammall, (7:57, Holding & Roughing), however it was Lithuanian Import Deivid Cetvertak that struck next with a neat finish on the rebound after Bavin had his initial shot saved. Islanders ended the period 0-2 up and in control of the game, despite a later boarding minor on Craig Wallis.
