The beginning of the 1st period saw the Steelers take an early lead when Ben O’Connor slotted one home past Mike Clemente in the Storms net. However, the Storm weren’t going to just lie down, and in a flurry of action Matt Bissonnette got one past Brad Day in the Steelers net, by slipping it through the open 5 hole! End to end hockey followed, with both sides going close. However, it was the Go Goodwin’s Manchester Storm who took the lead, when Darian Dziurzynski blasted home to send the packed Storm Shelter wild! The period wasn’t over however as Connor Varley latched onto a loose puck and sent a laser beam into the back of the net, leaving Brad Day helpless in the Steelers goal!
The second period couldn’t have started more perfectly for the Storm, as within minutes, they took a 4-1 lead when Eric Neilson slotted one past Brad Day, much to the delight of the Storm Shelter crowd. The Steelers were able to claw one back however when Zach Fitzgerald stuck from afar and zipped it past Clemente in the Storms net. Within thirty seconds though, the Storm restored their 3 goal lead when Adam Harding got a one timer off and past Day in the Steelers goal, causing the shelters roof to almost come off due to the cheers of the Storm fans. The remainder of the period saw the Steelers up the pressure and intensity on the Storm, and in particular Mike Clemente, whose heroics in the Storm net kept the score at 5-2.
The third period, despite no goals, was thrilling nonetheless, with the Storms eventual “Man Of The Match”, Mike Clemente pulling off more heroics to save the day. Tomorrow sees your Manchester Storm take the short trip over the hill to Sheffield for our first Challenge cup game of the season. F/O 5pm.
The Storm are back in action at home next Saturday when we host the Cardiff Devils in our season home opener! Tickets are available from the box office or online and are selling fast!
