Steelers win in Fife 4-2 and progress to the Cup Semi-Final

A comfortable nights work for the Sheffield Steelers as they progress into the Challenge Cup semi finals.

A first period Cole Shudra goal was added to in the second period by both Brandon Whistle and Martin Látal. Just Hodgman added a 4th in the final session to secure a 4-2 road win. Steelers progress with a 9-3 aggregate victory over the Flyers.

Steelers came into the game without Captain Jonathan Phillips but did welcome back John Armstrong to the line up. All three of the clubs two-way players, Cole Shudra, Alex Graham and Brandon Whistle all dressed.

Rok Stojanovic started for Aaron Fox’s side with Armstrong in-between Messrs Traversa and Dowd.

In a penalty free opening period it was a pretty even opening first half to the period.

Former Fife Flyer Sam Jones rattled the crossbar for the Steelers in our best chance of the opening exchanges.

The only goal of the final period came in the 47th minute when Michael McNicholas 2-4 (3-9)
