The Steelers Had Let Off As The Puck Came Free From…

The Steelers booked their place in the Challenge Cup final tonight, backed to the win by Anthony Morrone as both Patrick Harper and Sam Cooper made their debuts for the club.

Two goals in the first by defencemen Sam Jones and Brien Diffley was added to in the second by Captain, Robert Dowd and in the third by Mitchell Balmas to run away with the semi-final contest by ten goals to one.

The Steelers now await their opponent for the final which will be held at the Utilita Arena on the 13th March as the Glasgow Clan and Guildford Flame battle for the last place next Wednesday.

Despite the best efforts of the Coventry Blaze in the first twenty, it was the Steelers who came out on top once again in the first period as they extended their lead to eight. Fair play to the Blaze who had certainly come to make a good game of it tonight with the visitors upping the intensity from puck drop, especially through young Mack Stewart who used his body to good effect.

But the devastating firepower from the Steelers was once again too much to handle.

However, it was a blue line effort from the Steelers that got them on the board at (12.16) thanks to a lovely saucer pass from Nevalainen to find Sam Jones at the back post and he made no mistake in burying his effort. Secondary assist awarded to Ciampini on review.

The Steelers then had a bit of a let off as the puck came free from Morrone’s glove, but the officials whistle sounded before the puck found the back of the Steelers net.
