 Fife Flyers vs Guildford Flames game summary

Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, welcomed the Guildford Flames to Fife Ice Arena for the first time in 12 years following their last encounter in the former British National League.

Flyers went into the game fresh off a 7-1 away victory at Braehead over their bitter rivals which saw Evan Bloodoff score 4 goals. Shayne Stockton made his first competitive home start of the season following an upper body injury he sustained in pre-season.

The opening period saw a very even game as both sides pressed for the opening goal, but it was the visiting team who managed to get the go ahead goal as Flames' Kruise Reddick got the first goal of the game just after the 9 minute mark.

Chase Schaber had a fantastic chance to level the game when he found space on a shorthanded breakaway, however a fantastic glove save from Flames' netminder Chris Carrozzi ensured that the Flames headed into the dressing room with a 1 goal lead at the end of the first period.

Guildford extended their lead early in the 2nd period when Reddick got his 2nd goal of the game at 24:35, however Charlie Mosey pulled a goal back just over a minute later when his shot squeezed through netminder Carrozzi.

Guildford regained their 2 goal lead when Jez Lundin made it 3-1 at 32:18, however Liam Heelis pulled Fife back to within a goal at 37:44.

A defensive mistake gifted Guildford a 4th with 30 seconds remaining in the 2nd period to make it 4-2 to the visitors.

Into the final period and Flyers got themselves back in the game at 45:50 when Peter LeBlanc brought it back to a one goal game, however despite the pressure in the final period Flyers couldn't level the game, and when Andy Iles was pulled for the extra skater, Guildford sealed the win with an empty net goal at 58:49
