"Well done boys! It has been an eventful first season for the DALROD islanders. We started off as a bunch of players who might turn up for training and turn up 15mins before warm up for games. We now have a TEAM and making the play offs was never even thought of at the start of the year. We aimed to be competitive and put lots of effort in to the games so we didn’t get beat week in week out. The main goal for Dave & Jo was to put players in the frame to be call up to Phantoms if needed through injury’s. Lane, Stokes, Moore, Pollards ,Ferrara and White have all done this."
"Enjoy the extra few weeks together and enjoy the play offs you guys deserve it"
.DALROD Peterborough Islanders: 6
Chelmsford Warriors: 4
(Period Scores – 1-1, 3-2, 2-1)
The last meeting between these two teams at the Riverside in Chelmsford saw the Islanders on the wrong side of a humiliating 9-1 defeat. With this in mind, it was a strong, determined Islanders side which hit the ice on Saturday, boosted by the inclusion of Martins Susters, the return of Bradley Moore & James White from duties with the Phantoms, and the call up of Callum Medcalf from the U18s.
The Islanders opened the scoring just before the 10 minute mark as Connor Stokes converted a power play chance following moves from Conor Pollard and Martins Susters. However, 5 minutes later Chelmsford Man of The Match Ollie Baldock equalised on the return power play after James White received 2 minutes for boarding. The Islanders finished the period 2 men down following Leon Groom picking up 2 for interference and Martins Susters picking up 2 for boarding.
