The local derby -
The two local teams played each other for the first full game, in the Basingstoke Ice rink. A few mistakes early on saw the home side take the lead with an own goal being the first on the sheet. The Barracudas had a tough first period, going down all 5 unanswered goals. In the second period though Coach Austen and Wadge shook up the lines and it worked, with alot more shots on goal and alot more possesion by the Barracudas.
The Raptors keeper Bond, made some great saves keeping the scoreline at 0, and this continued into the third period. More shots and no goals. Good game in the end, with a dissapointing result for the Barracudas. We are looking forward to playing the Raptors again in the KEEN Cup Challenge.
