Shane Moore hailed the pride the Stars can take from the weekend’s performances.
The Stars pushed champions Streatham Redhawks all the way on Saturday, with Joe Edwards bagging a hat-trick in a 7-4 reverse. A rampant start to MK Thunder away, which saw the Stars go 2-0 in under two minutes of the match, saw the team secure a 4-2 victory.
It was a solid return on a double header on the road with a short bench on both nights. Moore said the team is fully focused on continuing to push and end the season as strongly as possibly.
Moore said: “I was really pleased once again with how the team performed this weekend. We had to bolster up with some of our 2-way players, and they went straight into the line-up and performed well.
“We knew Streatham would be a tough game, but the guys went in and played to the systems and came away with some real pride off the back of the performance.
“That helped us keep the momentum which we took straight into MK. We started well, but the foot game off the gas a little. We will be taking the learnings from the weekend into practice on Wednesday as we get set for Slough at home at the weekend.
“Ultimately, we are chasing down 7th place hard and it’s within our grasp.”
The win at MK Thunder was tempered by an injury to netminder Ross Miller in the third period. A collision of players resulted in Miller hitting the ice and suffering concussion. He was taken to hospital and we are pleased to report is now back home after being checked over. Everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery.
