Bracknell lost 3-2 against Hull Seahawks after a penalty shootout in Slough.

An opening period face-off for the Bees saw them secure possession and take control of the game early with an improvement to their game from the previous game on the Saturday at Hull in the form of their passing accuracy throughout the first period that also continued over to the other two periods of play.

Hull forced to sit a 2 minute Interference call that was served by Sam Towner but the Seahawks were able to kill the penalty but not longer after they managed to kill the penalty Ed Bradley with a sneaky shot managed to take the lead for the Bees at 13:33 with Brendan Baird receiving the assist on the goal. But Finley Urlick was quick to react to Ed Bradley’s success with a goal of his own to equalise the game at 16:27, that would see the period end at one a piece for each side.

A similar start to the second period as the first for the Seahawks as Finley Urlick faced a two minute penalty for High Sticks and yet again Hull were able to kill the penalty as well as another one called on Thomas Stubley for Tripping.

A massive improvement within the power play saw the Bees get many chances to regain the lead but were just unlucky to not get the puck to the back of the net. A penalty called on Bees against Aiden Doughty for two Boarding saw the Seahawks begin to apply pressure in Bees’ defensive zone but were unable to take full advantage of the situation. However, as the Bees returned to full strength the Seahawks managed to slip the puck to the back of the Bees goal to take the lead for the first time on the night with the goal scored by Brock Bartholomew.  But with less than two minutes Marcel Balaz managed to equalise at 39:08 with an unassisted goal to lead us into the third period at two a piece. 

The third period was extremely defensive by both teams as well as offensive. There were a lot of chances for both teams and Bees had a power play opportunity but failed to capitalise to take the lead forcing the game to go into overtime again.

A very back-and-forth overtime saw neither team able to settle the game and take the lead, which then saw the game go into a penalty shootout with only Josh Smith scoring for the Bees and Bobby Chamberlain, Emil Svec and Brock Bartholomew scoring for the Seahawks and securing the second point.
