OXFORD City Stars suffered late heartbreak as Raiders Junior scored seven seconds from the end to win their NIHL Division 1 South clash.

Vilius Krakauskas secured a 3-2 victory for the visitors after the sides drew 2-2 in regulation time.

It was a hugely frustrating result for Stars, who earlier fought back from 1-0 down to take the lead.

James Hounsome put Raiders ahead five minutes from the end of the first period, but Chris Cooke levelled just before the second buzzer.

Tom Ravenscroft looked to have completed the turnaround after the restart, only for Dan Hitchings to quickly equalise.

The buzzer at the end of the third period signalled a point for each side, but Krakauskas struck at the death as Stars dropped back down to eighth in the table.

They host leaders Streatham at Oxpens on Sunday (6.15pm).
