A weekend away in Romford and at home against Milton Keynes ended on a high for the TSI World Bees.

Raiders IHC 6 TSI World Bees 3

A swift start for the home team saw them ease into a lead just 65 seconds into the game thanks to Jake Sylvester but the Bees pulled level with a Josh Smith powerplay strike at 10.30, however Raiders would head to the interval with their noses in front when Aaron Connolly scored at 16.25.

A two unanswered goal middle period did the damage to the Bees as Raiders found goals from Erik Piatak at 24.37 and a second from Sylvester, this one on the powerplay, at 35.41.

Two goals from Rio Grinell-Parke completed the Raiders scoring at 41.40 and 50.52 but the Bees tied up the final period thanks to strikes from Bayley Harewood (49.26) and Juha Lindgren (57.15).

It was a night where youth and experience combined to see the Bees to a comfortable win as they returned to home ice on Sunday night.

With a scoreless first period played out James Galazzi stepped up with a powerplay strike at 24.35 to break the deadlock and doubled the home team advantage with an even strength goal at 39.40.

Bees got to a three goal lead thanks to Juha Lindgren’s second of the weekend at 42.10 but with 11.18 left to play Sean Norris broke Curtis Warburton’s shut-out but it was to be the only time in 26 shots the young Bees goaltender’s net would be breached.
