Thunder stay cool and take the points
Thunder kept their cool and won their game against
London Raiders by a score of 6 - 2. Josh Nicklin bagged four with Ryan Coffey
and Tom Mboya also scoring. The game was marred by a second period implosion by
the Raiders during which they had three players and one of the bench staff
ejected. Even by Raiders standards, the 143 penalty minutes was going some, 123
minutes of those just in the second period during which Thunder took nil.
Thunder now have a chance to climb to fifth place if
they can get a positive result against Solent Devils in Gosport next Sunday.
Good Luck to Ed Knaggs!
Thunder's Edward Knaggs flew to Finland today as
part of the GB U18 team to compete in the World Junior Championship to be held
in Estonia. The team, which includes last season's Thunder netminder Denis Bell,
visit Helsinki first to train and have a warm up game before travelling to
Estonia for the tournament. GB will take on South Korea, Estonia, Croatia,
Poland and the Netherlands over the week.
