Dundee Ice Arena was the venue as Scottish Ice Hockey staged the second in its series of four recreational tournaments last weekend.
Glenrothes Cougars worked hard to defeat Dumfries Demons 2-0 in the opening game before Highland Capitals secured a 3-2 victory over the newly-formed Ayr Bruins.
After an exciting first day, Dundee Michelin and Irvine Flyers led Pool A while there was a three-way tie between the Cougars, Edinburgh Knights and Aberdeen North Stars at the top of Pool B.
The Capitals gave themselves a fighting chance of progressing to the semi-finals the following day, claiming a solid 3-0 win over Edinburgh Phoenix.
A 1-1 draw between Michelin and the Flyers made Pool A very interesting, with both teams and the Caps locked together on five points.
The Flyers recorded a resounding 4-1 victory over the Caps to send themselves through in top spot ahead of Michelin. The Cougars and Knights progressed from Pool B.
The semi-finals were next on the agenda, with the Flyers and Knights defeating the Cougars and Michelin in their respective matches.
The Knights got off to a quick start in the final, with former Murrayfield Racers defender Dean Walker firing them ahead after five minutes.
They kept up the pressure and deservedly ended the first session with a three-goal advantage.
The Knights added another couple of goals to their tally after the break before Russell Holland pulled one back for the Flyers.
However, the Knights’ high-energy performance saw them run out worthy 5-1 winners.
