Buffalo out for revenge
10:00am Sunday 24th February 2013 in Sport
THE BASINGSTOKE Buffalo will be looking for quick revenge when they face the Swindon Wildcats tonight (face-off 6.30pm) after they lost in Wiltshire last weekend 3-1.
Gareth Endicott helped himself to a hat-trick in the win, including two powerplays goals in the final 10 minutes after the visiting players became incensed after Scott Padwick was speared.
Earlier in the contest the Buffalo had taken the lead after Daniel Lackey converted a pass from Neil Leary.
The under-16 Bison extended their perfect start to the season to 12 games after a 3-0 victory at Slough on Sunday.
Paul Petts opened the scoring at 9:51 from Hallam Wilson and man-of-the-match Max Florey.
The game remained close until the young herd doubled their advantage at 31:43 as Matt Levy finished a move involving Petts and Wilson.
The result was made safe five minutes later when Jack Reddin scored, assisted by Joel Venning and Wilson.
Jordan Lawday recorded the 13 shot shut-out.
The under-16s are next in action on March 3 away at Fareham and then seven days later are at home to Lee Valley.
Five Basingstoke junior players have been picked after the first of the South West Conference sides were selected.
Lucy Beal, Travis Penny and Sam Childs have all been selected for the under-11 team, while Beal and Harris will also play for the girls under-16 team. They will take part in the annual tournament played in Hull in May which will be against the South East, Midlands, North and Scotland teams.
