Buccs Tame The Tigers
The Buccs opened the Puckstop.com Summer Classic with a hard fought 6-4 victory over the Sheffield Ice Tiger. Starting the game with a short bench, it was backs to the wall for over half the match, as captain Michael Walsh was ejected for a very tame 3rd-man-in penalty early in the 2nd period. However the two lines skated hard right to the final buzzer and held on for the victory.
Buccs Suffer Heavy Loss To Phantoms
The first game of the Buccs season saw them travel down to M56 to North Wales to take on old friendly rivals, the Flintshire Phantoms. Traditionally, games between the two sides are close and hard-fought affairs but only the latter would apply this time around.
