Everyone Active Raiders made it eight wins in a row in National League Division One with success over Streatham on Saturday.
The visitors took the lead in the eighth minute with a power play goal from Ryan Webb, while Callum Wells was serving a penalty for boarding.
But Raiders were back on terms soon after with a delayed penalty goal from Juraj Huska and took the lead just 12 seconds later as Jake Sylvester struck.
Brandon Ayliffe made it 3-1 just over two minutes later, but Streatham hit back early in the second period as Alex Roberts scored a shorthanded goal, after Leigh Jamieson was given a match penalty for checking to the head.
Raiders killed off penalties against JJ Pitchley (hooking) and Blaho Novak (roughing), before a holding call against Streatham’s Ben Russell towards the end of the session.
And the home side scored a fourth goal within a minute of the final period as captain Aaron Connolly beat Damien King.
Streatham cut the gap to one with just over five minutes remaining with a shorthanded goal from Adam Carr, but Raiders held firm to claim another win, ahead of their trip to Peterborough on Sunday.
