The victory sees Bees leapfrog Jets into eighth in the English Premier Ice Hockey League table, albeit having played two games more.

Vanya Antonov opened the scoring at 8.24 and the Great Britain Under-20 international doubled the advantage five minutes later from Brendan Baird’s pass.

It remained 2-0 at the buzzer but the game burst into life in the second stanza as five goals were scored in just over five minutes.

Shaun Thompson extended Bees’ advantage at 26.17, only for Jets to stun The Hive with three goals in 90 seconds.

Matt Towalski scored the visitors’ first at 27.50 before former Bee Kamil Tvrdek and Ales Padelek both struck in quick succession to make it 3-3.

A crazy passage of play was complete a minute later when Pavel Strycek netted a powerplay goal to restore Bees’ lead.

The momentum was now with the home side and they ended the period firmly in charge thanks to strikes from Scott Spearing and Thompson.

Jets had two goals disallowed in the final stanza before Ollie Bronniman wrapped up the win with Bees’ seventh goal in the 58th minute.

Jets host Bracknell this Saturday (6.30pm f/o) before going to Swindon Wildcats on Sunday evening (6pm f/o).

Slough Jets 6-2 Peterborough Phantoms ALES Padelek and Kamil Tvrdek both scored twice as Slough Jets secured a much-needed win over Slava Koulikov’s Peterborough Phantoms at The Hangar on Saturday evening.

The hosts took the lead after five minutes when Padelek finished from Jamie Line’s pass.

Tvrdek soon doubled the advantage from Ryan Webb’s assist and debutant netminder Joe Myers performed well between the pipes to ensure Jets led 2-0 at the buzzer.

The home side continued their dominance in the middle period with three unanswered goals.

Sam Waller extended the lead at 26.29 and when Padelek netted for the second time at 29.21, former Jets head coach Koulikov called the Peterborough timeout.

But it did not have the desired effect as Alan Lack made it 5-0 shortly after the teams returned to the ice.

The visitors managed to get on the scoreboard in the final period thanks to goals from Danny Wood and Darius Pliskauskas.

However, with netminder Damien King pulled for an extra skater, Tvrdek netted Jets’ sixth into an empty net.
