Romford Junior Raiders could not deny National League Division One South leaders Streatham a big win at the Sapphire Ice & Leisure Centre on Saturday.
They held out until late in the first period, when Ryan Watt broke the deadlock with a power play goal, as Tommy Huggett served a high sticking penalty.
Ben Paynter and Rhys McCormick added further goals to put the visitors 3-0 up, before Vilius Krakauskas hit back just past the midway mark.
But Streatham restored their three-goal cushion just 15 seconds later thanks to player-coach Adam Carr.
And a strong final period display saw the table-toppers add five more goals to their tally to skate off as convincing winners.

And Adams was beaten five minutes later as Luke Brittle completed Streatham's tally in the 55th minute.
