Raiders completed a four-point weekend with success in south London on Sunday to maintain their hold on fourth place in the table.

Buoyed by their 6-3 win over Bracknell at Lee Valley the night before, they were unable to capitalise on a tripping penalty against former Raider Joe Allen in the first period.

But the visitors survived a shorthanded spell when Marek Nahlik was called for interference as the opening session ended goalless.

A boarding penalty aganist JJ Pitchley gave Streatham another power play chance after the restart and they made it count to open the scoring through Michael Farn.

But Raiders restored parity early in the final period with a power play goal of their own from Olegs Lascenko, after the home side’s Jamie Hayes was binned for interference.

And the match remained in the balance until the closing stages, when tempers boiled over and Raiders saw Pitchley and Matt Turner binned along with Streatham’s Jacob Ranson and Jordan Gregory with double minors for roughing after the gloves came off.

All looked on from the penalty box as Raiders claimed victory with 3.21 left on the clock as Ollie Baldock found Juraj Huska to beat Matt Colclough in the home goal.

And although Streatham removed Colclough in the final minute for an extra skater, they could not force an equaliser as Raiders held on for victory.

Michael Gray was named man of the match after making 45 saves for the visitors, who claimed their third win in seven league and cup meetings with Streatham this season.

Raiders host Basingstoke in their last match at Lee Valley next Saturday, then visit Invicta before they make their move to Romford to entertain Cardiff at the new Sapphire Ice & Leisure Centre when it opens its doors on February 3.
