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