The Bees gained revenge for their penalty shootout loss to Telford Tigers by beating the Shropshire side on their own ice on Saturday evening.

And they followed it up with an even more impressive 4-3 victory over local rivals Guildford Flames at The Hive.

"After the previous games it was the perfect way to bounce back," he told the News.

"We never should have lost that game to Telford and we showed our character to come back, especially against Flames. I looked around at the guys on the ice and I never thought we would lose the game.

"I would not say we have got something over the Flames this season, but we played well on Sunday and fully deserved to win."
