SNL round-up: Kestrels rout Sharks

Kirkcaldy Kestrels retained their place at the top of the table after a 13-0 rout at home to Solway Sharks SNL.

By the end of the first Kestrels were four up as Liam Cassidy, Robin Floyd, Jay Duncan and Andy Finlay got on the scoresheet.

Cassidy kick-started a six-goal romp in the second period to take it to double figures where he was joined by Allan Anderson, Daryl Venters, Sean Cochrane, Aaron Robertson and Martyn Simpson.

Kestrels continued in that vein in the third period as Cassidy added two more to his tally, making it four on the night and Robertson added his second to complete the scoring.

Paisley Pirates kept their title hopes on track with a 5-3 win at Dundee Comets.

John Gordon and Lewis Gold put Comets 2-0 up by the end of the first period, but Fraser Campbell and Mark Hassan drew the visitors level in the middle session.

Stuart Miller put the Pirates in front a minute into the third period, with Liam Riddell adding a fourth minutes later to give them a two-goal cushion.

Chris Wilson added a fifth to make sure of the points, with Jamie Whitelaw’s late goal for the Comets no more than a consolation.

The result puts the Pirates third, just two points behind the Kestrels with a game in hand.

Three goals in the first period gave Moray Typhoons a route to a 4-2 victory that dealt a killer blow to North Ayrshire Wild’s chances of taking the title.

The Elgin side did their play-off hopes the world of good with this victory, putting them three points ahead of Sharks with three games to go.

A mad three minutes in the first saw James McLeman’s side take the lead and stay there as Harry Ferguson struck first with a shorthanded goal, with Kevin Russell doing the same a couple of minutes later.

Ferguson’s second put them in a dominant position, but David Thomson pulled one back for Wild to close the deficit to two.

The home side restored the three-goal gap as Ferguson completed his hat-trick and although Ryan Parkin scored one with around eight minutes to go, Wild couldn’t push any further.

Wild bounced back on home ice with a 7-4 victory against Dundee Tigers – David Thomson (2) and Colin Henning (2) topped their scoring.
