MATCH REPORT | THREE ON THE SPIN FOR THE PHANTOMS AS THEY SOAR TO A COMMANDING WIN IN LEEDS

The Peterborough Phantoms picked up both points on Saturday night with a big win at Leeds.

After a goalless first period, Morgan Clarke-Pizzo got the Phantoms up and running, before Nathan Salem doubled the advantage at 34:11.

And Clarke-Pizzo made it three with 38:16 played, finding the net after good work by Nathan Pollard.

Kieran Brown got the Knights’ first of the evening with 28 seconds to play in the middle period.

But the Phantoms picked up in similar fashion to which they’d played the second, as Ales Padelek tallied an unassisted goal to make it 4-1 to Slava Koulikov’s side.

And Man of the Match Clarke-Pizzo notched his hat trick with just under 12 minutes to play, to put the Phantoms out of reach.

Brandon Whistle did get one back for the Knights, but Duncan Speirs’ empty net goal ensured the Phantoms would cruise to victory on Saturday night in Elland Road. 

Phantoms are back on home ice tomorrow night, as the Sheffield Steeldogs come to town. Tickets are available HERE, or from the Planet Ice Box Office upon arrival at the rink.

Doors open at 4:30pm ahead of a 5:30pm face off at Planet Ice Peterborough.
