With the Phantoms looking forward to the first game of the year they got off on the wrong foot (skate?),and allowed the Mustangs a goal in the first minute. The Deesiders dug in and took the play to the Mustangs zone for long periods resulting in Mike Richardson's first goal for the Phantoms, levelling the score on 12 minutes. Well done Mike! The period ended 1 - 1.
The second period began with end to end play until the Phantoms took a penalty and the home side scored in the resulting power play with a deflected shot. The Phantoms then came under more pressure resulting in a Mustangs third goal. The Phantoms changed goalie half way through the period and still the Mustangs continued to pile on the pressure, but Jamie Scarratt had shut up shop. Brett Hobson and Sam Hunt had a couple of 2 on 1's but were denied by fine saves from the Mustangs puck stopper. The period ended 3-1.
At the start of the final session Phantoms came out fighting but were soon under the cosh from a Mustangs power play. Brett and Sam teamed up again for Brett to find the net making it a one goal game, 3-2. With Phantoms pressure telling they were presented with a 5 on 3 power play and Mark Robertsom levelled the score on 55 minutes, his first goal too. Well done Mark! ...3 - 3 Game On! But it wasn't to be, after keeping the Mustangs out for 26min the Deesiders got drawn in behind the net and Mustangs netted another for 4-3. The Phantoms continued to push hard for the equaliser only for the Mustangs to score again to seel the result with only 30 seconds left on the clock! An enjoyable hard fought game.
