ICE HOCKEY: Stars hang on to tame Mustangs
11:00am Thursday 27th September 2012 in Sport
Oxford City Stars ran out 4-3 winners over Invicta Mustangs in their first home game in English National League Division 2 South.
Matthew Drake gave Invicta the lead with a breakaway goal, before James Clark levelled with just 11 seconds left of the first period.
Alan Green fired Stars ahead a minute into the second period after a bullet pass from Darren Elliott, and Nick Oliver stretched their advantage following good work by Darryl Jones.
Drake pulled one back with his second.
However, a Sam Broughton strike restored Oxford’s two-goal cushion early in the third period.
Richard Smith reduced the deficit again, but Stars held on.
