Sheffield Steeldogs get their teeth into the Swindon Wildcats

Sunday, December 01, 2013

Written by Rebecca Wood

Swindon Wildcats were on home ice at the Link Centre on Saturday evening when they took on the Sheffield Steeldogs in league action.

The dogs started off superbly quickly - with Lloyd Gibson scoring the first goal just 33 seconds into the game.

The Cats were soon back level with a goal timed at 6.50  by Aku Pekkarinen  -after a wrist shot found its way past of screen of players.

The score remained at 1-1 for the rest of the first twenty minute period.

Only 34 seconds into the second period, timed at 20.34, the Cats took the lead for the first time of the night when a rebound across the goal found new Cats import Jan Kostal - who made no mistake in slotting the puck home.

Not long later, at 21.24, the score was back level at 2-2 when Sheffield import Lubomir Korhon scored a nice individual goal and it was all game on again.

New import for the Cats, Jan Kostal then scored his second goal of the night on a breakaway - putting the Cats 3-2 up with a goal timed at 30.28

The game was now back and forth and all action as the Steeldogs again drew level - this time through Greg Wood on the powerplay, with a goal timed at 33.29.

Jan Kostal then scored his hat-trick goal, timed at 35.25. The cats were now 4 – 3 in the lead. The goals were flying in and what a game!

The all- action second period at last finished, giving everyone the chance to get their breath back!

Into the final period, the Sheffield Steeldogs went level for the third time of the night when Greg Wood scored a powerplay goal, timed at 46.26.

Then at the worst time of the night for the Wildcats to go behind in the game, at 52.46, Steve Duncombe scored for the Dogs, putting them 5 -4 in the lead.

The Cats called a time out with 1 minute 39 seconds left and threw everything they could at Sheffield net, but couldn't draw level before the final buzzer. After leading the game for most of the night they were behind when it really counted at the end.

Man of the Match Awards went to Gibson for the Steeldogs, and hat-trick hero Jan Kostal  for the Cats.

The Swindon Wildcats are next in action at home on Saturday, 7th December against Manchester Phoenix.
