SNL preview: Lynx teamwork key to success

Aberdeen Lynx travel to Dundee Tigers on Saturday hoping to continue their goal-laden start to the SNL campaign.

After drawing 1-1 with Dundee Comets in their season opener, Lynx have smashed 34 goals in three games to send a strong message to the rest of the league.

Jordan Leyden (above) grabbed four goals in last week’s 10-2 victory over Moray Typhoons to leave Head Coach Barry Carnegie a happy man.

“I stressed to the guys about the importance of starting fast like we did against Edinburgh,” he told Aberdeen Evening Express.

“It was good to build up a bit of a lead because we knew what was coming. They’re a physical team at times and they can be awkward to play against.

“I’m glad we took care of it in the first period, it gave us the chance to try new things in the second and third period.”

With eleven goals so far this season Leyden has been Lynx’s standout performer, but he paid tribute to his teammates for their contribution to his total.

“When you have the team working well together and feeding goals on a plate, it becomes much easier,” said Leyden.

“Everyone of us plays our part – we’re all out there working for one another.”

Tigers have picked up three points from their first two games, drawing 5-5 with North Ayrshire Wild and winning 3-0 at home to Edinburgh Capitals SNL.
