Flames looking to hold on to second place, Wildcats looking to break into the top four. The first period was goalless, Wildcats defended well and had the odd chance, Flames weren't great. The visitors took the lead early in the second and we wondered if an upset was on the cards. No. Flames quickly equalised and added a second 29 seconds later. Time out Wildcats. It didn't do any good because Flames got a third minutes later. The crucial part came near the end of the second when Flames had two men serving penalties. Flames easily survived the first penalty, then scored themselves while shorthanded to make it 4-1 at the end of the period. Wildcats weren't coming back from that and Flames showed them how to take advantage of a powerplay, scoring two when Swindon had two in the box. The visitors got a neat consolation to round off the scoring. First visit to the Spectrum for a while, much more comfortable facilities than my usual haunts at Basingstoke and Solent, but so little atmosphere..... the 100 visiting fans made more noise by far.
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.
