SLOUGH Jets made it five consecutive wins in the National Ice Hockey League this season after back-to-back victories against Solent Devils last weekend.

The Jets beat Solent 3-1 in the Slough Ice Arena on Saturday, before an 8-3 victory at Planet Ice in Gosport on Sunday.

The first period finished goalless on Saturday, but Slough broke the deadlock with a goal from player-coach Lukas Smital in the 26th minute.

Solent equalised with a goal from Richard Facey on 45 minutes, but the home side secured the points through Daniel Rose and Sean Norris.

Slough opened the scoring on Sunday with a goal from Smital in the 14th minute, but they trailed Solent at the first buzzer after both Alex Murray and Mitchell Murray found the back of the net.

The Jets raised their game to lead 5-2 at the end of the middle period thanks to a Rose brace, plus strikes from Robert Horsfall and Smital.

Rose scored again seconds into the final stanza to complete his hat-trick, but the home side pulled a goal back through Alex Murray.

Slough secured the victory with goals inside the final six minutes from Harry Harcup and Smital, to complete his hat-trick.

The wins mean Slough Jets have moved up to third position in the league table and eight points behind Chelmsford Chieftains but with two matches in hand on the leaders.

The Jets welcome Cardiff Fire to the Slough Ice Arena this Saturday (5.45pm), three weeks after a 7-2 league win in Wales.
