The Division Two Raiders fell to a heavy Essex derby defeat in a penalty-littered contest at Chelmsford on Sunday night.

Chiefains captain Ross Brears put his side ahead after only 84 seconds and doubled their lead with a shorthanded goal in the third minute.

Bailey Chittock replied for Raiders, before the gloves came off towards the end of the first period as Brandon Webster and former Raiders defenceman Charlie Phillips tussled.

A string of minor penalties followed in the second period, with the scoreline remaining unchanged until the 37th minute when Bradley Moore put the hosts 3-1 up.

Moore struck again on a power play, after Alan Lack and Elliot Dervish had earned 2+2+10 penalties for fighting.

And the home side scored three more power play goals in the final session to skate off comfortable winners.

Moore completed a straight hat-trick during a spell of 5-on-3 after Raiders were given a bench minor penalty for having too many men on the ice and then saw Chittock called for hooking.

And James Ayling made it 6-1 with Raiders still a man down, before Brears completed his own treble late on, after Stevie Dunnage and Justin Robinson had also been binned for fighting.

Scorers, Chelmsford; Brears 3+3, Moore 3, Ayling 1+3, Wilson 0+1, Dimond 0+1, Polston 0+1, Grant 0+1, Phillips 0+1.

Raiders: Chittock 1.

Shots faced: Sonny Phillips (C) 23-7-11=41-1; Zach Grandy-Smith (R) 16-19-14=49-7.

Penalty minutes: Chieftains 56 Raiders 50.
