MATCH REPORT: Storm lose on the road in Fife

Any hopes of a four point weekend were dampened, when an outstanding Flyers performance completely dominated Manchester Storm to win 8-0.

The Flyers were not denied a goal on consecutive occasions against the Storm, as Benson’s soft wristshot trickled through the pads of Ginn. An exceptional double save by Ginn miraculously prevented the Scottish outfit from doubling their tally in the 10th minute. Poor defensive zone coverage from Manchester allowed an uninterrupted shot from the slot to be fired on goal and despite Ginn’s best efforts, the rebound was tucked away by Greg Chase in the eleventh minute. Later in the period, a high-quality triple-save from Owen repelled the Storm forwards on their first powerplay opportunity of the game.

A spurned 5on3 powerplay opportunity by the Storm would prove incredibly costly, as Fife avenged their Saturday night loss in ruthless fashion during the middle stanza. The defence failed to clear the zone and Fife converted. Minutes later, Anderson slotted away the Flyers’ second powerplay marker of the game.

Flyers’ produced their fifth moments later, scored by Peacock viaa pass behind the net from Naslund. This goal brought a change in netminder with Downie replacing Ginn between the pipes. Fife added a further two-goals before the forty minute mark via Benson and McKenzie.

A quiet final period saw the hosts extend their advantage further when Lescovs heavy slapshot beat Downie, as the Flyers found a third powerplay goal of the night.
