Phantie scares the Demons

Postby dheatonrue » 18 Apr 2013, 20:09

With more than a little resemblance to a Scooby Doo episode the Phantoms and the Demons went at it again for the second time in a few weeks for bragging rights on the Deeside. The Demons were confident after an 10-5 win in the first game and a good result in between. The phantoms had other ideas though aided by the decision to fore check with 2 committed from the beginning they managed to get amongst the Demons who found the close attentions and speed of the phantoms difficult to cope with as passes went astray. The D also played up and it was a very rare occasion when the Demons move through the neutral zone unchecked. At the other end the phantoms quickly found that shooting early was looking like a good plan against an effective shot stopping keeper but with plenty of leftovers available for the forwards to try their luck with. The die was cast for a quick and interesting period.

Steph Southgate in goal showed her class early on with some excellent pad saves with quick reactions to the cover up keeping the puck safe. Super concentration and work from Steph throughout the game led to a most deserved MVP for an excellent contribution. That is not to say that the phantoms fought a rear guard action for the game however they were far too good for that. Scott Dutton crashed one into the net to start the scoring from the Phantoms but the first period ended 2-1 Demons.

The second period was an equally close affair Roland Flook got his first of the game after good passing and patience from Leo Herbert and Adam Dadswell paid off. Demons regained the advantage half way through the period but the Phantoms stuck at it and levelled through Flook a second time. 3-3, game on and the Phantoms flying.

In the 3rd the Demons pulled back in front from a second power play goal but the phantoms were right in the fight. And talking of fighting D Winstanley saw red when he inexplicably started a fight with Leo Herbert, who valiantly fought back using only his head as he was hit from behind whilst on the floor. The Demon got a match penalty, Leos head got two minutes for not having eyes in the back of it.

That was the big moment in the game, the resulting extended power play was the phantoms best chance to get in front but despite great pressure from both PP lines they could not find a way through. Phantom George Perrett gained his second of the night, unfortunately for the Phantoms he was wearing a Demons shirt at the time, I told this was like Scooby Doo. With time running out and driving forward to try and rescue the result George scored his hat trick goal and the night was up for the Phantoms.

A defeat but an excellent performance and in with a shout until the last few minutes of the game. The team enjoyed it and are looking forward to the next challenge.

If only we could have taken advantage of the penalty when it was offered.
If James Ashbrook had not kept his goal drought of 2 games intact :twisted:
If George had taken a lesson from Agent Scarratt in the first game and shipped goals for the Demons :oops:
If it had’nt been for those pesky kids!!!! :lol:

Roving reporter Ashbrook interviewed Chris Keating after the game
Asbrook: How was the game for you?
Keating: I we’ reet good.

We agree
