Phantoms’ Ondrej Lauko then returned the favour past Dean Skinns late in the period, as the first twenty minutes came to a close with both sides tied.©calyx_Pictures_ice_peterborough_0026

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.©calyx_Pictures_ice_peterborough_8552

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.
