Peterborough Phantoms 15-0 Invicta Dynamos

The Invicta Dynamos iced a very short bench in their away fixture at the Peterborough Phantoms and were unsurprisingly thrashed 15-0 – despite a huge effort from the 8 squad members who did make the fixture.

The Invicta’ roster only contained:

 

10 Zosiak (A)

16 Foord

21 Munroe

29 Leone (C)

35 Morris (NM)

59 Ancitis

61 Strawson

65 Morgan

 

The Mos stood firm for the first five minutes with the Phantoms going close in the 2nd minute with Corey McEwan who hit a shot at Mos’ netminder Morris on the right shoulder. Moments later Arran Strawson done well to retrieve the puck from Robert Ferrara and clear any danger.

However the scored on 5:08 through Ales Padelek and assisted by Robert Ferrara for 1-0. Just before the 8 minute mark Morris done well to beat away an effort from Tom Norton before the Phantoms went 2-0 up on 9:22 through Petr Stepanek and an assist from Callum Buglass. The Dynamos then had a break from defending with Ondrej Zosiak finding Ryan Morgan who raced down the right and flashed a shot across goal.

The Phantoms soon increased their lead to 3-0 after a few quick passes led to James Ferrara knocking the puck beyond Morris on 15:06. Barely 12 seconds later it was 4-0 with Padelek rattling in his second of the night, assisted by Glenn Billing. The Mos then saw Antony Leone hit a deflected shot which Phantoms’ netminder Bainborough saved. The away side had a 5 on 3 powerplay in their favour neat the end of the 1stperiod but despite a welcome break from defending and plenty of puck possession they were unable to get a goal back before the end of period buzzer.

The Phantoms made it 5-0 on 21:06 through Petr Stepanek and assisted by McEwan before Mos’ netminder Morris made three saves in quick succession. Despite the efforts of Morris and the hardworking 7 skaters it was soon 6-0 27:23 with Corey McEwan adding his name to the scoresheet.

Action at the opposite end saw Matt Foord register a shot at Bainborough but not long after the save the Phantoms switched play to the other end of the ice and made it 7-0  on 32:26 through Nathan Pollard. Pollard the only needed 21 seconds to make it 8-0 with the home side now sniffing double figures. A couple of saves by Morris to deny Robson and then McEwan soon led to the Mos seeing a chance on 34:50 – Leone robbing Robert Ferrara with Bainborough doing well to deny the Mos a goal.

It was however the Phantoms who scored next for 9-0 with Morris saving a shot on 36:47 but with the netminder grounded Phantoms’ Ales Padelek lifted the puck over Morris for a hat-trick, assisted by Billing and James Ferrara. A few minutes later it was double figures with the Phantoms scoring for 10-0 on 38:53 through Jarvis Hunt to end the scoring for the second period.

The Phantoms soon made it 11-0 on 41:43 with James White the latest scorer. The Mos were far from giving-up and on 43:33 Leone got a lot of power behind a shot from the left but Bainborough held the puck well. Another powerplay fell the way of the Mos on 44:42 – Martins Susters tripping Leone.

The powerplay saw Arran Strawson hit two shots at Bainborough but the Phantoms managed to keep the Kent side at bay and soon returned to full strength. Goals on 47:21 (Taylor Romeo), 48:32 (Nathan Pollard – hat-trick) and Ross Clarke on 51:33 increased the scoreline to 14-0 with the Mos then calling a timeout. The Mos held back the Phantoms for a while but it was soon 15-0 – Scored on 55:03 by former Dynamos’ forward.

The Dynamos had one last chance of the game – in the 59th minute with Bainborough pulling out a massive save to deny Matt Foord.
