Record Breaking Night In East Yorkshire - Panthers win Again

It was a record-breaking night in Hull for the EIHL as the Stingrays and the Panthers carried on the festive week of hockey action. For the Hull Stingrays it was their third game in 3 days as they hosted the Nottingham Panthers playing their third in 4 days.

The home side started brightly opening the scoring through Jason Silverthorn only for the Panthers to reply a minute later. The second period saw the Panthers take control of the game. A double from the Beauregard and Hereema put the Panthers two up only for the Stingrays to get back in the game before the end of the second period. Hull scoring first through Osman and then 16-year-old Bobby Chamberlain with 50 seconds left on the clock; Chamberlain becoming the EIHL’s youngest ever scorer in the process.

The record breaking did not stop there as the Panthers began their third period rout. David Clarke was eventually given the Panthers forth goal marking the GB international becoming the EIHL’s leading goal scorer outright with 230. That goal was added to by a brace from Lachowicz and singles from Lee, Levers and Fox as the Panthers hit 6 scores in the third period.

That win puts the Panthers just one point behind the Belfast Giants at the top of the table and extends their regulation unbeaten run to 12-0-1-1.
