SNL round-up: Title-chasing trio stay on track as race looks set to go to the wire

Dundee Comets kept their SNL title bid on track after coming from behind to beat Aberdeen Lynx 6-4 over the weekend.

Aberdeen edged in front early in the second period through Iain Malcolm and Jack Durkacz doubled their lead a few minutes later.

The Comets fought back with three quick goals from Adam McNicoll, Billy Hogg and Sam McCluskey to end the session 3-2 ahead.

Ross Johnston and John Dolan extended their advantage to three goals in the final period, but goals by Jordan Leyden and Aaron Thomson gave Lynx renewed hope.

John Gordon’s effort with just over two minutes to play gave Comets the win and leaves them one point in front of Kirkcaldy Kestrels with three games to play.

Conor Gordon weighed in with 10 goals as Kirkcaldy ran out comfortable 25-1 winners at home to Solway Stingrays. Allan Anderson and Garry Simpson also bagged hat-tricks.

Paisley Pirates remain third in the table, two points behind the Comets with a game in hand, after recording an 11-2 home success against North Ayrshire Wild.

Marc Crute and Michael Dobson both scored hat-tricks for Paisley. Haydn Bain (2), Adam Walker, Calum Henderson and Richard Thorp were also on the scoresheet.

Dundee Tigers eased to an 8-0 win at Kilmarnock Thunder – Robbie Barnett (2), Grant Reekie (2), Scott Marr, Paul Guilcher, Mark McLeod and Kier Grant got the goals.
