Elite League

Guildford Flames 1 Manchester Storm 0

admission 17-33 with booking fee, programme downloadable via internet, attendance 1928
5th v 9th/11, both teams needing points for the playoffs.
Fifth game in nine days for the Flames, but a good week for them as they got through to the Challenge Cup Final (the first non-arena team for 4 years), and today they won the Patton Conference (there is a (massive) trophy, but it only means they were better than Storm, Lightning and Blaze in meetups over the season) with this narrow, tense win. The teams met yesterday in Manchester and Flames won 6-1. Totally different here.
Storm, the penalty kings of the league this year, had two players still suspended after last week's meltdown during the handshakes in Fife - but here, they mainly concentrated on playing hockey and were pretty good. The game could really have gone either way, but Flames probably had more good chances.
The only goal of the game came after about 12 mins, Dunbar netting after two-thirds of a patient powerplay, well-managed by Flames. Byers missed an open goal soon afterwards. The game was physical but mostly fair. In the second Flames had a goal disallowed because the net had been moved, another attack suffering the same fate. Storm managed to hit the post instead of an empty net.
In the third a Storm powerplay yielded two Flames breaks and two one-on-ones missed. Lots of chances as the game opened up. With 1:27 to play Storm had a timeout and pulled the netminder. As they did for most of the game, they threatened but were unable to breach the Flames defence and particularly the excellent netminder Fullerton, who achieved a 38-shot shutout (he and Corrozzi are rotated in nets). With 19 seconds to go Storm nearly scored, Flames nearly got an ENG and then we had a bundle, Ferguson and Long both getting 2+10. It was 4 v 6 on the ice at the end but Flames survived as they and the crowd celebrated. Also two important points in the playoffs - six teams separated by only six points after 40-odd games, and only four teams can make it....



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.
