MATCH REPORT | BACK TO BACK FOUR POINT WEEKENDS SEALED WITH BIG WIN IN TELFORD

Your Sycamore BMW sponsored Peterborough Phantoms completed consecutive four point weekends with a comfortable win in Telford on Sunday night.

Captain Will Weldon got the Phantoms up and running with a blue liner, which found a way past Brad Day in the Telford net.

But the Tigers hit back through Ross Connolly, who ripped an effort into the top corner to tie the game.

And the home side went into the first intermission with the lead, as Brodie Jesson latched onto Joe Aston’s centring pass to fire beyond Jordan Marr.

But their lead didn’t last long. Ales Padelek levelled the game after Glenn Billing’s initial shot was kicked straight to him by Day.

And Duncan Speirs put the Phantoms back in front with a powerplay goal. The Scottish forward went to the back post and was picked out by Billing for a simple finish.

The provider turned scorer just under two minutes later, with Billing finding space on the back post this time, to put the Phantoms 4-2 to the good.

And it was Billing who made it five, tapping home a simple finish after Day’s save rebounded straight to him.

Telford started the third period with energy and began to throw everything they had at the Phantoms goal, but they found Marr and his defence in fine form, as they blocked everything which came at them.

There was still time for Tom Norton to grab a powerplay goal, though, and that’s exactly what he did. Phantoms are now on a four game winning streak, with back to back four point weekends secured!
