Peterborough Phantoms 5 Basingstoke Bison 4
THE Basingstoke Bison went down by the odd goal in nine, at the Peterborough Phantoms on Sunday night.
The home side took a two goal advantage into the first break, thanks to goals from imports Erik Piatak and Frantisek Zubek.
Joe Miller with his third strike of the weekend, got the Herd back into the hunt and after two periods the score was 2-1.
Joe Rand tied the game at 44:10, but five minutes later Piatak netted and then a Marcel Petran blue line blast on the powerplay made it 4-2.
Bison captain Nicky Chinn reduced the arrears to one goal, only for Jaroslav Cesky to restore the two goal lead.
As the game went into the final two minutes, the Bison pulled their netminder man-of-the-match Dean Skinns and Rand scored.
However, despite pulling their goalie again the Herd were unable to force the game into overtime as they lost 5-4.
