At last I saw a win for Bison, at the fifth time of asking! This was the best team performance I've seen from them, despite the usual comedy moments in defence (Skinns, in achieving his second consecutive shutout, actually saved three one-on-ones). 2-0 at the end of the first period in which Phantoms initially defended well and looked dangerous on the break, but in the second period Bison took over and scored three more as the visitors faded. Two of those were in 30 secs and prompted a timeout. Comfortable third quarter for Bison. 27 fans in the visiting block. Not a bad game considering the scoreline. The Bison bunch (especially in block C, where I sat) are particularly hard on the officials.
This helped take the edge off the bad news from Solent and Gosport Devils - 11 of their top players left the club on Thursday after a bust-up with the coach, they will be playing tomorrow but it doesn't look good for the rest of the season.
If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.
