Dogs down The Bison
The Bradfield Brewery Sheffield Steeldogs dug deep to take a W on the road in Basingstoke.
The Dogs made a bright start with Matt Bissonnette testing Alex Mettam early before beating him at 7:40 to open the scoring.
The Bison levelled early in the middle session with Milton hitting the net. With the Dogs looking to capitalise on a man advantage, Harding bagged a shorthanded goal to get the home fans going. Another power play failed but Jason Hewitt fired one home seconds after the Bison returned to full strength, #17 having had several attempts during the 2 minutes.
The final period upped the intensity further and it was the home team who went ahead with Milton making it 2 on the night - but Charlie Thompson fought threw to restore parity just 13 seconds later. That left 15 minutes for two teams to battle it out and there were chances at both ends - however it was Jason Hewitt who won the game with a great power play snipe. The Bison called their timeout and pulled Mettam but the Dogs held on.
A 4-3 win away from home, achieved with just 4 D who put in a brilliant effort.
Matt Bissonnette got the man of the match honours but there were many deserving candidates.
The Dogs will look to double up when the Bison join us for a 4:30 faceoff at iceSheffield in our Halloween game.
