On Satur­day, Stars suf­fered a 5-1 re­verse at the hands of Fife Fly­ers in Kirk­caldy.

It didn’t take Fly­ers long to get their open­ing goal when they cap­i­talised on their sec­ond pow­er­play op­por­tu­nity of the evening as Chase Sch­aber scored his sixth league goal of the sea­son.

Fly­ers got their sec­ond pow­er­play goal when Peter LeBlanc fired the puck low be­yond Travis Fullerton.

It was then 3-0 with Carlo Fin­ucci net­ting Fly­ers’ third pow­er­play goal of the game when he redi­rected a shot from Ian Young into the net.

As it looked like the Fly­ers would take a 3-0 lead into the in­ter­val, Stars got a goal back when Marc-Olivier Mi­mar man­aged to squeeze the puck into the net.

Evan Blood­off net­ted the first of these with Josh Scoon get­ting the sec­ond to reg­is­ter a com­fort­able suc­cess for the Fife side.
