Everyone Active Raiders ended up comfortable winners over MK Thunder at Sapphire Ice & Leisure Centre on Saturday.

The visitors arrived with only 10 skaters but opened the scoring through Jamie Line midway through thee first period.

And Thunder went 2-0 up through Tomas Rubes before the first break after outshooting Raiders 14-12 in the first period.

A hooking penalty against captain Ross Green gave Raiders the chance to hit back on the power play within a minute of the second period through Jurak Huska and Jake Sylvester squared matters barely a minute later.

The home side’s joy was shortlived as Hallden Barnes-Garner put Thunder 3-2 up just 34 seconds later, but Raiders captain Aaron Connolly levelled and Dan Scott converted on a power play after the visitors were hit with two minor penalties in quick succession to Line (hooking) and the bench for a face-off violation.

Raiders moved 5-3 up with a shorthanded goal from Sean Barry before the end of the period, but Thunder replied with a power play goal from Logan Prince after Matt Turner had been binned for hooking.

Huska put Raiders 6-4 up, with Ashley Jackson netting a seventh just 20 seconds later.

And after Syvlester claimed an eight goal for the hosts, Jackson completed their tally with just over a minute left on the clock.
