The Bison continued to charge through the Autumn Cup on Saturday.

The Herd picked up another victory, playing at home against the Peterborough Phantoms, who are currently top of the league.

On paper the game appeared a tough one, especially when Basingstoke had key players out of the game. These featured Joe Baird in defence, as well as Roman Malinik, Ivan Antonov and Josh Smith all missing from the attack.

However, after a tight first period, the hosts picked up momentum picking up two goals.

But, the weaknesses started to show within the Herd as Peterborough quickly grabbed the two goals back.

Yet, before the period was over, there was enough time for the Bison to grab their third goal to take a one goal lead into the final period.

And it seemed to be that with that third goal they had really grabbed momentum adding another three goals to their tally.

The win sees the Herd continue their stampede in the league as they look to take the top spot, as they sit one point behind Peterborough.

After the game, Bison’s Man of the Match Ryan Sutton told Winol that: “the defence made the game easy for us tonight” and that “everyone chipped in” and the team “showed good character” in the second period, to end it at 3-2.
