Dominant Giants In Comfortable Christmas Win Over Braehead

fqwewefcewfcwe

The Stena Line Belfast Giants increased their winning streak to five games when they defeated the Braehead Clan in front of a crowd of almost 6,000 at the Odyssey Arena on Saturday night. With Braehead taking two of the previous three encounters between these two teams, an entertaining game was expected. And both teams delivered with a seven goal game and a fierce first period which saw five goals, with the others coming in the final frame.



There was no time for fans to settle into their seats as the Giants took an early lead from Craig Peacock with just 2:35 on the clock. It didn’t stop there though as the Giants went on to score two short-handed goals at 4:31 and 5:21 from captain Adam Keefe and his line-mate Darryl Lloyd. The Giants continued dangerously on this same penalty-kill with Cheverie having another opportunity to increase the lead but Kyle Jones did well to deny him this time.


Soon later though the Clan pulled one back to make it 3-1 when Leigh Salters scored on the powerplay past Carsen Chubak. The two-goal lead didn’t last long though as Man of the Match Darryl Lloyd cropped up with the Giants fourth goal and his second goal of the night goal at just 7:46. Although those were the only goals to be scored in the first period, both netminders had plenty to keep them occupied with both pulling out some huge saves.

The middle frame was a much more low-key event with end-to-end hockey but no goals or major talking points. Both teams had plenty of opportunities but Carsen Chubak and Kyle Jones made sure the score remained as it had been.



In the final period, the Giants extended their lead at 47:38 when Mike Kompon wrapped around the post to beat Jones on the powerplay. Kevin Westgarth made it 6-1 at 52:58 after an inch-perfect pass from behind the net from Craig Peacock letting Westgarth fire home top shelf.


A superb performance from Carsen Chubak in the Giants net stopped the Braehead Clan from clawing any goals back. Even with the five-goal lead the Giants continued to chase another right up until the final buzzer, with entire team putting in a tremendous effort.
