South 1 Weekend Round Up - 8th & 9th November

Chelmsford Chieftains remain top of the table after their 3-2 home win over Solent Devils but Streatham Redskins stay level on points in second place after their 5-6 away at Wightlink Raiders.

London Raiders faced two difficult away games - made even harder by a behind the scenes player dispute at the club leaving them very short-benched.  They lost 5-0 away at Cardiff Devils on Saturday, despite outshooting their hosts, and then succumbed 8-1 to Bracknell Hornets on Sunday who now move into 3rd place above MK Thunder.

Thunder had themselves beaten Solent Devils 5-2 on Saturday night.

The team of the weekend in South 1 would have to be Invicta Dynamos.  On Saturday night they beat Oxford City Stars 3-8 away in the league and then on Sunday  they beat Bracknell Bees EPL team in the ECCS.

Andrew Smith top scored with 3+1 as the Dynamos were outshot 32-48 by their EPL counterparts but still went on to become the first NIHL team to beat an EPL outfit in this competition.
