NIHL South round-up (w/e 10th January)

Wightlink Raiders inflicted Chelmsford Chieftains’ first home defeat of the NIHL1 South season with an impressive performance at the Riverside on Sunday.

Alex Sampford (2), Ryan Webb and Matthew Lawday got the goals for Raiders as they recorded a 4-2 victory.

Invicta Dynamos closed the gap on Chieftains at the top of the table after a 7-3 win at home to Bracknell Hornets – they are now six points behind with a game in hand.

Streatham Redskins collected a pair of victories from their weekend double-header against Cardiff Devils NIHL.

Callum Best (above) and Evander Grinell topped the scoring with two goals each in a 6-2 home win, while Adam Wood, Kamil Kinkor and Steven Fisher matched the feat in a comprehensive 9-3 road success.

Solent Devils drew 5-5 in both their weekend games, but twice blew winning positions. Boris Ruzicka’s last minute effort denied them the win against Oxford City Stars, while Josh Nicklin’s hat-trick goal secured a point for MK Thunder.

London Raiders are out of the D1S Cup after losing 6-2 at home to Chelmsford and they completed a miserable weekend with a 5-2 league defeat at Oxford.

Cardiff Fire maintained their 100% record in D2S with a 6-2 win at Swindon Wildcats NIHL.

Peterborough Islanders triumphed 7-0 at home to Lee Valley Lions, while Basingstoke Buffalo won 4-2 on home ice against Bristol Pitbulls.

Drew Campbell was in excellent form for Haringey against Slough Jets, scoring twice in Racers’ 8-2 road success and four in a 9-3 home win.
