THE Basingstoke under-12 Bison ice hockey team moved up to third in the South One table after a 7-2 win at Haringey.

One-nil down, the young herd hit back with three unanswered goals from Lucy Beal, William Birch and Travis Penny.

The home side then netted their second goal to make it 3-2 at the first buzzer.

The young herd dominated after the break and scored twice in a minute through Kody Sewell and Birch.

Emily Harris made it 6-2, before Penny completed the scoring as Oliver Waites picked up his second assist of the game.

The under-16 Bison lost 6-0 to the visiting Swindon-based Okanagan team.

Jordan Lawday saved an early chance but the visitors went ahead.

Good defending by George Gill stopped another goal, before Okanagan made it 2-0.

The Bison again showed their defensive ability with some great work by Sam Compton and Josh Richards to keep the visiting forwards out.

But the Swindon side made it 3-0 before the Herd’s Jason Cheesbrough found Wilson, who fired wide.

Man-of-the-match Lawday was called on to make numerous fast paced saves, but, by the end of the second period, the Bison trailed 5-0.

The final session saw Max Florey and Steven Ratcliff force saves from the visiting goalie.

At 37.59 the Bison changed their netminders as Jed Sherrington took over – and he made a superb late save after the visitors had scored their sixth goal of the game.

The Bison’s spirit-of-the-game winner was Daniel Moss.
