MATCH REPORT | PHANTOMS BEATEN ON SATURDAY NIGHT

The Telford Tigers travel home with the points after a Saturday night win in Peterborough.

Jack Watkins continued his scoring form from mid-week to put the Tigers ahead with just over four minutes played.

And the Tigers went into the first intermission with a 2-0 lead after Andy McKinney tapped home a second for the visitors.

Veteran forward Jason Silverthorn extended their advantage to three in the opening minutes of the second stanza, by scoring an unassisted, short handed goal.

Morgan Clarke-Pizzo got the Phantoms up and running just shy of the mid-way point, after finding space in the offensive zone to fire a low shot past Brad Day at the end of a Tigers power play.

And the Phantoms threatened to make a game of it when Ales Padelek fired home a great centring pass by Glenn Billing to cut the deficit back down to one.

But that hope was relatively short lived, as Joe Aston applied the finishing touch to Telford’s fourth goal of the evening.

Phantoms started the final period brightly and once again reduced the arrears back down to one, with Duncan Speirs ripping an effort home after good work by new recruit, Nathan Salem.

Corey Goodison applied the killer blow to the Phantoms with just over 15 minutes to play, by slamming in a power play goal from the blue line.

Phantoms go again tomorrow night (Sunday) with a trip to take on the Raiders. Full match updates will be on @GoPhantoms Twitter from around 4:15pm, with face off at 5:15pm.
