Kirkcaldy Kestrels are through to the semi-finals of the SNL play-offs after completing a 10-8 aggregate victory over Edinburgh Capitals SNL.

The teams were tied at 5-5 after last week’s first leg, but goals by Willie Nicolson (2), Robbie Hill, Conor Duncan and Reece Cochrane sealed a 5-3 win for the Kestrels in the reverse fixture.

Aberdeen Lynx also progressed to the last four, although they were given an almighty scare by Dundee Tigers before securing their spot.

Lynx led 7-3 going into the second leg, but the Tigers fought back on home ice to tie the aggregate scores at 8-8.

The play-off semi-finals take place at Fife Ice Arena on Saturday, 8th April, with Kirkcaldy facing Paisley Pirates and Aberdeen meeting Dundee Comets.

The final is scheduled for the following day.
