MANCHESTER Storm maintained their impressive home form with their fifth consecutive win against Dundee Stars on Saturday – an overtime goal by man-of-the-match Riley Stadel securing a 4-3 victory.

Stadel scored a hat-trick in the game and Chris Auger scored Storm’s other goal in a game that head coach Ryan Finnerty was far from happy with.

Finnerty said: “It was a good start where we raced into a 3-0 lead but we collapsed in the second period and allowed Dundee back into the game.

"We came good in overtime and have a good record in overtime this season but we need to find some consistency and some of the players need to take a look at their own performances.”

On Sunday Storm travelled over the Pennines for a local derby against Sheffield Steelers who went into the game off the back of a 7-1 hiding at Cardiff on Saturday.

The Steel City outfit were looking for a quick reaction and got it thanks to a 4-3 win.

Shane Bakker was Storm’s star man, getting involved in everything and scoring a goal.

Auger and Mike Hammond also scored for Storm but Finnerty’s men were always chasing the game.

With results going for Storm last week, the team qualified for the knockout stages of the Challenge Cup which opens up another route in the chase for silverware.

This weekend Storm have two tough fixtures with a visit from Belfast Giants on Saturday evening before the long trip to play Guildford Flames on Sunday.
