Phan­toms record a de­served win to spoil Wall’s Bi­son de­but

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

BAS­INGSTOKE ...............2 PHAN­TOMS ....................5 STEPHEN Wall prob­a­bly felt like the kid who didn’t get what he wanted for Christ­mas as Phan­toms bat­tled to a bril­liant Box­ing Day win.

Af­ter quit­ting last month to end five straight sea­sons at the Peter- bor­ough Arena, Wall has resur­faced be­tween the pipes for Bi­son. But Phan­toms en­sured him a dis­mal de­but at the Sil­ver­dome with an­other pow­er­ful away dis­play.

Player-coach Chris Allen missed the game with a foot in­jury, but his team de­liv­ered their third straight win thanks to goals from Maris Ziedins, Rob­bie, Brown, James Fer­rara, On­drej Lauko and Luke Fer­rra.

Allen said: “I am re­ally proud of the ef­fort the boys put in against Bi­son, es­pe­cially as we were miss­ing Will Wel­don from the first pe­riod in.

“It was not easy watch­ing but the guys did a great job and it was nice to see Damien King come out on top against Wall. That will do his con­fi­dence a lot of good.”

Maris Ziedins en­joyed a goalscor­ing re­turn from in­jury to en­sure Phan­toms took the first pe­riod hon­ours with his pow­er­play marker.

Ef­forts from Brown, Luke Fer­rara and Lauko - who scored against his former club to take his tally in a Phan­toms jersey to seven in six - put Phan­toms in con­trol.

Mar­cel Pe­tran did man­age to pull one back for Bi­son as the sec­ond ended 4-2. But the added in­sur­ance of a Luke Fer­rara goal in the fi­nal act meant Daniel Volrab’s ef­fort was not enough to deny Phan­toms a de­served vic­tory.

ON TAR­GET: Luke Fer­rara scored in both games.
