OXFORD City Stars head coach Kenny Redmond hailed his side after an emphatic derby mauling of Swindon Wildcats 2nd.

A 14-2 victory maintained their 100 per cent record in Division 2 South.

And the Stars chief was delighted at his team, who turned on the style in front of a bumper Oxpens crowd.

“It was a great win and our best performance of the season,” Redmond said.

“We moved the puck really well and quickly and scored some excellent goals. We changed the lines a bit and the players responded.

“We now have some challenging games on the road to keep our run going.”

Dax Hedges, who was acting captain with Darren Elliott unavailable, said: “The boys were fantastic and we played some great hockey.

“The fans were brilliant and beating our local rivals in front of such a noisy and big crowd made the win even more special.

“That performance was for the fans who have backed us week-in, week-out.”

Stars came flying out the blocks and went ahead on five minutes, Lee Richardson finding the net assisted by Hedges.

Michal Oravec and Matt Lawday then found the net to give the hosts a 3-0 lead at the end of the opening period.

But after the break, they went up a gear and proved too hot to handle for Swindon.

Oravec, Richardson and Hedges scored in quick succession to make it 6-0, but Wildcats hit back through Eliot Randall.

However, Stars responded with four goals in the final four minutes of the period.

Oravec completed his hat-trick, with Dom Hopkins, Tom Davis and Josh Oliver also scoring to make it 10-1.

Lawday and Hedges scored their second goals in the final period, and although Randall got his second for Swindon, Oravec notched his fourth of the night before Will Harrison wrapped up a big derby victory.
