Raiders were convincing winners of their National League Division Two derby with Lee Valley at the Sapphire Ice & Leisure Centre on Sunday.

The visitors had fallen to a 12-0 defeat at Haringey Huskies on Saturday and Raiders took the lead with barely four minutes gone through Alan Lack.

The hosts doubled their lead on 11 minutes as Jake Hall netted, with George Gell getting in on the act with the third.

Captain Sam Roberts made it 4-0 with just 18 seconds left in the opening period and Kamil Kinkor struck within 90 seconds of the restart.

Gell got his second in the 24th minute and Matt Hamilton claimed his first of the season to make it 7-0, with Bailey Chittock netting number eight just 37 seconds later.

Debutant Ewan Hill made it 9-0, days after celebrating his 16th birthday, and Chittock took Raiders into double figures with his second with 10 minutes still to play.

But Lions added the only other goal to the scoresheet as Tomas Hnilica ended the shutout hopes of the impressive Brad Windebank with seven minutes remaining.

Scorers, Raiders: George Gell 2+3, Bailey Chittock 2+1, Kamil Kinkor* 1+2, Ewan Hill 1+2, Sam Roberts 1+1, Alan Lack 1+1, Matt Hamilton 1, Jake Hall 1, Matt Brown 0+3, Tommy Huggett 0+1, Thomas Baptist 0+1, Daniel Hitchings 0+1.

Lions: Tomas Hnilica 1, Gus Zimmerman 0+1, Joshua Irish 0+1.

Shots on goal: Brad Windebank (R) 11-13-8=32-1, James Andrew (LV) 15-12-17=44-10.

Penalty minutes: Raiders 32, Lions 6.
