Thunder struck

Streatham endured a frustrating evening in Milton Keynes as they lost 4-1 to the Thunder.

The RedHawks welcomed back Adam Wood from illness for the game and enjoyed the better of the first period before going behind three minutes from the buzzer thanks to a goal from Jamie Line.

Despite being shorthanded almost from the restart, Streatham equalised before the end of the period as Ben Russell passed through to Andreas Siagris and the Canadian made no mistake with the finish.

The second period saw Jordan Lawday in the MK net continue to frustrate the RedHawks forwards, and seven minutes in it was 2-1 as Tomas Rubes fired past Damien King.

Seven minutes later Rio Grinell-Parke extended the lead to 3-1 leaving the RedHawks a big challenge in the third period.

Sadly for the visitors and the band of fans who had made the trip north, it proved to be more of the same. An incredible 25 shots in one period, taking the total for the game up to a whopping 62 yielded no goals, and down the other end, Tom Mboya rubbed salt in the wounds with a fourth for the hosts.

The only other talking point being ugly scenes towards the end of the game as both benches clashed, culminating in a raft of minor penalties for Streatham and the ejection of Thunders Trevor LeBlanc on a match penalty.
