For their only game of the weekend, the Berkshire Cycles Bracknell Bees headed to Kent to take on the Invicta Dynamos.

Invicta Dynamos 2 Berkshire Cycles Bracknell Bees 9

Conor Morris and Danny Milton got the starts in nets and Josh Martin opened the scoring for the visiting Bees at 4.40. Morris found himself very busy in the opening period and conceded to Josh Smith at 12.09 for 0-2 before Stuart Mogg netted just 39 seconds later for a 0-3 opening period.

A coming together just shy of halfway saw Ondrej Zosiak, Scott Spearing, Harrison Lillis and Shaun Thompson all penalised for fighting with double minors and a game misconduct to Zosiak for third man in. Dynamos netminder also coughed a penalty leading to a powerplay when he was called for 2 minutes for leaving the goaltender’s crease. Roman Malinik converted the powerplay at 30.20 and James Galazzi made it 0-5 when he scored a powerplay goal at 30.51 before Jake Stedman opened the Dynamos account at 31.03.

Third period goals started with Harvey Stead at 7.16 into the period with James Galazzi netting his second of the night at 49.01. Roman Malinik scored his second, again on the powerplay at 55.06 before finishing for his hattrick at 57.32 at even strength. Louis Colvin scored the final goal of the game at 59.04 but it did nothing to affect the result and Bees skated off with both points.

After the weekend the winning Bees Coach Doug Sheppard shared his thoughts; “That’s job done. We had only one game this weekend with Invicta and no training ice during the week so it was good to get a convincing win and was nice to see a few different guys scoring goals too. I thought we played well as a team and hopefully, we carry that momentum on into a big home and away series against Swindon next weekend.
