Match Report - Bees 3-4 Wildcats

SWINDON Wildcats sealed their second win of the weekend away to Bracknell Bees on Sunday night.

 

The short away trip was the club's second NIHL Cup fixture in as many days, as the Link Centre side looked for a second four-point weekend in a row.

 

The first period saw Aaron Nell's troops fall behind early on when Callum Best found a way through in the 12th minute of the game.

 

That one goal advantage was one the Bees would hold until the end of the opening 20 minutes.

 

The Cats drew level after the restart, when teenager Jordan Kelsall registered, following an assist from import Max Birbraer.


The visitors were behind again a minute later, as James Galazzi poked home in the 34th minute to make it 2-1 to the Bees.

 

The single goal separated the two teams going into the final instalment, but it was the Cats who would assert their dominance as captain Jan Kostal levelled proceedings two minutes into the third period.

 

Nell then cemented a second win for the Cats as he found the back of the net twice as the game finished 4-3 to the Wildcats, a nervous win thanks to the late Bracknell goal by George Norcliffe.
