 Fife Flyers vs Manchester Storm post game summary

The Gardiner Conference champions the Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, returned to action on Saturday at Fife Ice Arena as Manchester Storm were the visitors, following Wednesday's mid-week postponement of the Edinburgh Capitals game due to the adverse weather.

There was some doubt as to whether Saturday's game would go ahead as Manchester awaited confirmation that their bus company were OK to travel north, however Manchester confirmed they would travel just prior to 11am.

Flyers went into Saturday's game without starting netminder Andy Iles, defenceman Ian Young and forwards Evan Bloodoff, Danick Gauthier and Brady Ramsay.

Chase Schaber got the home side off to a great start when he picked up a rebound in front of the Manchester Storm net to put Flyers 1-0 up after just 1:34.

Jim Jorgensen doubled the Flyers lead at 8:25 on the powerplay with a shot from the blueline which beat Clemente in the Storm net.

Ciaran Long pulled a goal back for Storm at 14:10, firing the puck beyond Jordan Marr in the Flyers net from a tight angle.

Into the second period and Manchester tied the game up early when Mike Hammond made it 2-2 after 24:24. Declan Balmer put Manchester 3-2 ahead at 34:17 before Dallas Ehrhardt made it 4-2 to the visitors at 35:49.

Despite Flyers best efforts they were unable to get back on the scoresheet. Mike Hammond wrapped up a Manchester win with an empty net goal at 58:25.
