Murrayfield Racers proved their Scottish National League (SNL) title credentials with a stunning victory over Dundee Comets on Sunday.

Martin Cingel (3), Ethan Reid (2), Richard Hartmann, Sean Donaldson and Joel Gautschi got the goals for the Racers as they secured an impressive 8-2 success.
Paisley Pirates jumped over the Comets at the top of the standings with a 6-3 home win against Aberdeen Lynx.
Grant Reekie’s late goal sealed a narrow 6-5 victory for Dundee Tigers over Solway Stingrays – Callum Turnbull (2), Jack Terroni, Robbie Barnett and Tony Malone were also on the scoresheet.
North Ayrshire Wild recorded their second league victory of the season with a comfortable 7-2 success at Kilmarnock Thunder.
