The league’s bottom team were leading 5-2 at the end of the second period but were eventually pegged back and had to settle for a point. That point lifted the Bulldogs off the bottom of the table – a position that is now occupied by Coventry Blaze who lost 5-4 away at Altrincham Aces on Sunday.
Bradford’s other game of the weekend – away at Widnes on Sunday night – also started well as they held their hosts to 1-1 at the first break and looked very much in contention until the Wild began to pull away in the third period. The match finished 7-2 but Bradford looked the better side of much of the encounter and will draw hope from their weekend performances.
Widnes are now 3rd - just one point behind Deeside who they play at Queensferry on Saturday night.
