After an easy victory over Peterborough, Fife should have kept something in reserve for the visit to Sheffield. The first period finished goalless, but a short-handed goal from Steve Nemeth broke the stalemate half-way through the match. Les Millie scored Sheffield's second, and Chris Kelland and Ken Murchison scored in the third period. Martin McKay skated off having faced 32 shots without conceding a goal.
Edinburgh Racers suffered their biggest defeat, 16-5 at the hands of Cardiff Devils. Edinburgh must have found the six goals from Hilton Ruggles, a former Racer, particularly galling.
Cardiff continued their winning streak the next day against Bracknell Bees, coming from behind twice to win 14-8.
