Guildford Flames‘ boss Paul Dixon bemoaned his team’s slow start to the game as they were ruthlessly dismantled by Peterborough Phantoms on Saturday.
Four first period goals by the Phantoms set them on their way to a 6-1 victory and brought the Flames’ three game winning run to an abrupt end.
“We lost the game in the first 15 or 16 minutes – giving up 20 shots and four goals to start a game is unacceptable and we know that,” said Dixon.
“Every guy in the room knows that, but we can’t change how that game started or ended.
“The best we can do is look ahead to Telford and Sheffield as opportunities for redemption and that is what we are going to do.
“We certainly have a lot better in us than what we put on the ice at Peterborough and hopefully we can deliver evidence of that across the upcoming games to wash away the taste of a very disappointing evening.”
