Head Coach Matt Ginn and the squad were looking to continue their impressive home form infront of a noisy Friday night crowd at the Shelter.

The Dundee Stars were the visitors making the long trip down in search of two important league points in a crowded mid table. A lively first ten minutes saw chances at both ends of the ice but both goalies stood tall. It was Critchlow who opened the scoring with a fast wrist shot from the hash marks which flew past Carr’s glove into the top corner – assisted by Hinam and Harrison. Moments later Weninger pulled off a highlight reel save to deny the Stars an equaliser.

Just three minutes after the first the Storm added a second goal, to extend their lead, this time scored by Corneil who tapped a loose puck home out infront. Assists going to Farley and Ehrhardt in the build up play. Heavily outshooting the visitors the Storm took a two goal advantage heading into the middle period. It didn’t take long after the restart for the Storm to add a third, when Murphy dug the puck out of the corner and lasered a pass to Critchlow who converted nicely for his second marker of the game.

The Star’s backup netminder Lucas Brine was called into action at the mid point of the period when Carr picked up an injury after a pile up in his crease. After a lot of penalty minutes passed the Storm added a fourth goal late on as Phillips casually feathered the puck into the net, assisted by Farley and Murphy. A huge third period was needed by Dundee to try and gain anything from the game with Storm in dominating form.

A somewhat uneventful final period saw little in the way of good scoring chances with the damage done in the previous two. With less than four minutes remaining in the game however, the Stars finally found a way to beat Weninger as Harms converted from close range assisted Naas.

A strong home performance by the Storm saw them take the two points to move upto fifth place in the league standings with a 4-1 scoreline.
