Ice Hockey: Lawless' golden moments
Tuesday 15 December 1992
They carried on where they had finished in the cup, a flurry of late scoring making the win more comfortable. It was 5-0 after no more than 15 minutes against Bracknell and the Devils never looked back. When Bees came back to 6-3 in the third period, Steve Cadieux and Stephen Cooper ended any ideas they might have had of victory.
Warriors were left to travel the short distance to Durham Wasps and defeat would have been excusable. Instead, a disputed goal from Simon Leach with six minutes left - Wasps claimed that he was offside - saw Warriors move 6-4 ahead and then win 6-5 to lurk a point behind Devils.
Billingham Bombers faced up to Fife Flyers with just 10 skaters and two goalminders and by the end were down to seven players, three of that number - together with two men from Flyers - having first use of the showers. Hardly surprisingly, they were beaten 16-5.
The next day, they lost Jeff Lindsay in the third period with a suspected broken jaw after he had been struck by the puck and lost 14-4 to Peterborough Pirates. The two defeats, coupled with Nottingham Panthers' 6-5 win against Fife, sees the luckless Bombers at the opposite end of the table to the Devils.
