Slough Jets - 2
DALROD Peterborough Islanders - 13
Saturday was the third win on the road in a row for the Islanders as they racked up another huge win in the league.
James White and Nathan Pollard both tallied hat-tricks in the game, as did Conor Pollard, who now has two hat-tricks in as many games.
During the first period the Islanders came out strong and got off to a flying start finding the net 5 times. Yardley fired in the first within six minutes, only to have the game tied up at 1-1 3 minutes later when Underdown made his own mark on the scoreboard. James White and the Pollard brothers soon cemented a lead for the Islanders though, all picking up their first of the night. Before the period ended Pentecost was also able to fire in a goal to give the Isles a 5-1 lead going into the second period.
The second period was a much slower affair. The Isles took their food right off the gas, assuming the game was put to bed. A goaltending change for the Isles just before a power play to the Jets gave the only sparks of the period. Brad Moore netted a surprising short-handed goal for the Islanders with a fantastic counter-attack, but the Jets managed to capitalise on a cold Adam Long 30 seconds later. The period ended at 1-1.
Conor Pollard picks up a hatrick as the Islanders power play slices through Racers defence.
The first period was steady from both sides with the Islanders having only a few slightly better chances than the Racers. Defensively the Islanders found their feet and shut down nearly all of Haringey's rushes, forcing shots from tough angles or distance.
Down the other end the Isles found the net twice in the period, only to have both goals disallowed for an offside and an unfortunately timed whistle. However the Islanders got a well deserved lead 9 seconds from the period close - Craig Wallis firing in the first of the Islanders power play goals from the point.
The Racers started the second period on the penalty kill and within 30 seconds C.Pollard slotted home his first of the night. This was followed by another power play goal from Pentecost two minutes later, both goals set up from the point by Cleves and Yardley.
Haringey pulled one back in the period when Clayton found the net, but the period was set to end 3-1.
