Topcats Target Falcons Next

Saturday April 2, 2016 @ 5:15pm

Swindon Topcats get the best opportunity to extend their four point lead at the top of the standings this coming Saturday evening when they host second placed MK Falcons at the Swindon Ice Arena, face off 5:15pm.


The game marks the first meeting between the two sides this campaign and while the Topcats will be looking to build on their nine game unbeaten season run, with just five games remaining until the end of their league campaign, the side can ill afford a slip-up if they’re to seal their ambition of the league title, come May.


The Falcons have forwards Elizabeth Archer (5 goals, 3 assists) and Lydia Howton (6 goals, 2 assists) amongst their ranks – both of whom have iced for the Topcats during previous years, however their main firepower is undoubtedly provided by Rachel Piotrowsk, who has netted 15 goals and recorded 5 assists from the 7 Falcons games played to date.


The Falcons have only recorded one defeat so far this season, and that came on the road back in October when they fell to a 6-4 loss at Slough Phantoms


Topcats from:  Casey Webb, Gemma Davies, Rebecca Osman, Louise Mason, Emma Hindmarch, Ruth Leopold, Sarah-Jane Fletcher, Rebecca Da Cova, Sophie Emmanuel, Rebecca York, Paige Seaton, Anne-Sheralie Chilcott, Laura Dowson, Ashleigh Loftus-Thorne, Joanne Woods, Charmaine Payne, Rebecca Inker and Emma Collins.


Falcons from:  Kayleigh Doyle, Laura Foot, Adelaide Hunt, Abigail Lester, Beatrice Lester , Samantha Payne, Rachel Piotrowski, Samantha Ruff, Elizabeth Archer, Sarah Carter, Rachael Clough, Vicky Grainger, Jessica Green, Lydia Howton, Kaya Moore, Kirsten Noble, Amy Robinson and Diane Thornton.


Entry to the game is FREE and the side would welcome your support.
