Match Night Live
Basingstoke Bison 2 - 7 Cardiff Devils

Right, sorry about that, no one told me face-off was 6:30!! Faced off, Hinks is captain for tonight!

Cardiff seem to be creating a lot of chances, but alas, no goals :( Cornish is trying to goad Prpich into a fight, he hasn't been defeated yet.

Penalty against Cruickshank 2mins at 4:02.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL for the Devils! - More info coming soon!

For anyone out there watching, got anything to say? email us at or contact us on 07891 93326!

Devils goal at 15:36, Scored by Anderson, assist from Prpich

Prpich missed a chance on goal, any bets on a possible hatrick? :D

Cornish tries to start a fight with Maciver! Result: Maciver laughs :D

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLL!! Devils goal scored by Silverthorn, assists being confirmed now at 8:12.

Devils second goal came from Silverthorn, assists from Hartwick and Campbell. Thanks Steve for the correction there :)

Whoever the ref is, they're letting Basingstoke get away with murder it would seem. Trying to find out who officials are now!

Ref for tonight is Thompson

Incase you've not done it yet, be sure to register on our forums! We've got some great ideas in the pipeline and *hopefully* an exclusive interview with Prpich!

Maybe 7mins of 1st period left, seems the infamous black hole of Basingstoke is swallowing the phone signal again :(

Misconduct call on Bison player, no details on who yet!

Misconduct call on Bisons Danny Stewart, no time details yet :S

6minutes to go in the 1st period, come on Devils :)

Cornish is intent on fighting with Maciver, once again he's laughed at. New tactics from Adams? Or is Maciver playing hard to get :E

Stewarts misconduct call was from unsportsmanlike conduct, 12 game ban anyone? :P

Haven't heard anything from anyone out there watching! No one got anything interesting to say? :)

Ok here we go...

Hinks scored another at 19:59, assist from Andersson and someone else. Cornish gets 10min penalty for slashing Maciver. Maciver gets 10min penalty for being slashed?! Bison netminder is very very ropey and the team seem to be all over the place, Devils dominating. Thompson is letting lots of small things go, resulting in big incidents he's calling.

Latelippe is fitting in very well, very very fast which is a good thing. Word is Cornish is almost dropping his gloves every couple of minutes but is generally being a liability.

End of 1st period it's 0-3 Devils! If you guys out there press F5, some of the comments should fix themselves as I just broke them :E

Just going for a drink guys, keep the emails coming, i'll start pasting them up soon :)

Updates on goals! 1st and 3rd goals were on the powerplay. Shots on goal this period, Bison:6 Devils:16

Email from Russ. For Cornish and MacIver read Maxwell and De Waele!! Anyone remember it? It was hilarious at the time! - Unfortunately I don't think I saw this, any info? I remember Maxwell throwing a hissy fit and stamping his feet at the old WNIR though :)
