North Ayrshire Ice Hockey club (NAIHC) saw two of their sides make the trip up north to Aberdeen at the weekend and both head home with wins.

The clubs youth sides, the North Ayrshire Stars (U14s) & North Ayrshire Predators (U16s) both braved Storm Arwen to play on Saturday.

The Stars were the first onto the rink, playing the earlier kick off at 6.15pm.

The youngsters won their game 9-5, with Leeroy scoring a great first for the Stars.

Leeroy’s efforts were rewarded with the man of the match award, with coach Gary MacColl delighted with the players performance.

He said:”Leeroy was outstanding at the weekend, a well deserved man of the match.”

Next up on the ice were the Predators, who got off to a flying start with shots on goal from the first puck drop.

They were soon rewarded for their aggressive start with their first goal of the game via Adam Bainbridge.

His strike was then closely followed by another goal, less than two minutes later, from Captain Flynn Massie.

Kerr Drummed then sent the puck to the back of the net with his trademark blue line slap shot two mins later.

Aberdeen Lynx, fought back and scored their first goal not long after but any comeback was short lived when the skipper scored his second goal.

Aberdeen then scored again before Massie completed his hat trick goal to make it 5 - 2 to Predators at the end of the first period.

In the second period, Aberdeen grabbed the only goal to cut the Predators lead to 5-3.

In the third period, the Predators regained their two goal advantage through Jacob Woods, who notched his first goal of the game.

However, less than a minute later, Aberdeen responded as both sides pushed for the win.

The action then stepped up and the puck moved from net to net with every member of the Predators team working to bring home the first win of the season.

However, with long long to go, Aberdeen scored again, setting up a tense end to the match.

But late strikes from Woods and Massie clinched the win for the away side with the game finishing 8-5 to the North Ayrshire Predators.
