Raiders skated to victory over their Peterborough rivals in National League Division Two on Saturday.

In-form George Gell gave the visitors the lead midway through the first period, but was then given a minor penalty for a late hit early in the second session.

And the home side levelled during the power play, as Ray Almgren beat Brad Windebank.

Ewan Hill restored the Raiders lead just before the midway mark and Matt Brown put them 3-1 up in the final minute of the middle session.

Gell then grabbed his second and Raiders fourth goal of the night within a minute of the restart, before Samuel Austin was given a 2+10 penalty for boarding.

Raiders extended their advantage while shorthanded, as Alan Lack made it 5-1, but Bailey Chittock and Lack then fell foul of the officials to earn slashing and cross-checking penalties.

And that allowed Peterborough to claim a second power play goal of the night through Jake Samal, although it proved only a consolation.

Scorers, Peterborough: Ray Almgren 1, Jake Samal 1, Callum Worthington-Evans 0+1, Nick Alley 0+1, Kenny Bavin 0+1, Conor Pollard 0+1.

Raiders: George Gell 2, Alan Lack 1+1, Ewan Hill 1+1, Matt Brown 1, Sam Roberts 0+1, Callum Burnett 0+1, Clint Walton 0+1, Bailey Chittock 0+1.

Shots on goal: Dan Lane (P) 12-17-9=38-5, Brad Windebank (R) 5-18-12=35-2.

Penalty minutes: Peterborough 8, Raiders 26.
