Despite a final impressive scoreline, the first period held a close affair as both sides started well. It would be the home side who would break the scoring in the third minute, with the in form Henri Sandvik beating Damien King in net after a quick release wristshot.
The second period then saw Swindon increase the pressure on home ice and start to find some dominance on the game.
Peterborough soon found a second through Will Weldon however that goal was soon cancelled out through Wildcats forward Floyd Taylor. The young British player would see his goal be his first in a Swindon shirt and one that would double his sides’ lead going into the final period.
A 4-2 score was quickly made 5-2, as Swindon took little time to open the final twenty minutes. A powerplay chance would give the ‘Cats a prime opportunity to strike and was ultimately converted once again through previous scorer Sandvik.
A 6-2 scoreline would see out the game and award Swindon a deserved two point victory.
Final Score: Swindon Wildcats 6 – 2 Peterborough Phantoms
Man of the Match: SWI – Sandvik / PET – Ziedens
