Huge upset as Spitfires beat SC Titanium; and AWARE edges Hooters Nana in shoot-out
Week 14 SHL action saw two incredibly close games yet again as in game one the Sukhumvit Spitfires rode their win streak to seven games, knocking Sport Corner Titanium out of first place with a 4-2 victory while AWARE defeated Hooters Nana 3-2 in a shootout in game two.
The opening game did not disappoint as the battle of the SHL’s two top teams, saw intense action at both ends of the ice. Sukhumvit jumped into a 3-0 lead on goals by Scott Whitcomb, Donny Kerfoot and Scott Murray before SC-Titanium stormed back with John Schachnovsky scoring a power-play goal and Zak Garofolo roofing a beautiful wrist shot past a stunned Lance Parker. Alasdair Fawcett used his fleeing speed to put Sukhumvit back in front to stay with just over six minutes left in the game.
