Dundee Stars 0-4 Sheffield Steelers (Final)


Sheffield Steelers showed off their improved form at an overwhelmed Dundee Stars tonight.

The side went looking for third straight win under Gerad Adams’ command at a rink which is notoriously difficult to get anything out of.

Sheffield had lost in the league at the venue back in September.

But things have changed a lot since the season has evolved and Sheffield have won five out of their last six games after overcoming a previous, wretched spell.

Tonight, Steve Goertzen (concussion) was still off the roster.

It was a relatively eventless first period, with neither side scoring or troubling the referee.

But Tim Spencer put the visitors ahead on 28 minutes.

And a Power Play second credited eventually to Rob Dowd put Adams’ men in cruise control.

Nate DiCasmirro got Sheffield’s third of the night at 43;04.

The dominance was underlined at 56;46 when Dowd made it 4-0.

Man of the match: shut out goalie Frabnk Doyle.

*Steelers go to Hull Stingrays on Saturday and host champions Belfast Giants at the Arena on Sunday.
