Now 3-0 at BBT

Joey Martin scores 3rd goal Doucet & Hotham scored in 1st period

Brest penalty @ 24:59 - hooking

It might have been Carl Hudson whop scored 2nd goalk not Andrew Hotham


Apologies I didn't think I would make tonight but got home a bit earlier than I thought

Trying to contact texters at BBT

Tyson Marsh scored 4th Devils goal @ 26:28 assist Tomas Kurka

Devils penalty @26:44 Salters 2+10 check to the head

Joey Martin gets 2nd assist on Devils 4th

Game stopped MIST/FOG at BBT players skating around

Not a surprise its been hot and I have just driven through a thunder storm


Wonder goal by Andrew Lord who chases a puck played out of their zone by SH Devils catches it near Brest goal line, spinarama and scores

Best penalty @ 29:21 - high sticksCardiff

Brest return to full strength

Big thanks to NIGEL for updates

Gone quiet from BBT

Hopefully MNL will be up to speed by next weekend, maybe Sunday


Joey Martin assists Jake Morissette @ 36:44

Stephen will be hosting in September whilst I am in Canada, more hosts would be of great help

No assist for Jake Morissette they go to Tyson Marsh & Tomas Kurka


Devils look very sharp

Luke Piggott scores 7th assists Hervato

Josh Batch with the other assist

Jon Jones has now joined us from the BBT

Handbags - Trevor Hendrikx in the middle of it

@ 39:24

Callum Buglass has been tremendous tonight on Devils blueline

After the first 2 periods of the new season its DEVILS 7 Albatros 0

Whilst on the issue of MNL hosts what we need are Devils fans living away from Cardiff not able to attend many homes games.

Ice is ready for 3rd period

Teams reappear

Referee is Dean Smith

3rd starts

Brest goal

Ben Bowns unsighted apparently as the Albatros open their account

Brent Walton goes close

Joey Martin hits post

Albatros net off its moorings

Another delay due to fog

The ice is melting its so warm

Its still over 20 degrees

Luke Piggott goes close

Devils using all their bench

Adam Harding goes close

By my reckoning Devils have 19 skaters

With Callum Buglass (Swindon), Lewis Turner (Bracknell) & Adam Harding (Swindon) icing

Gametime 48:56

Good (practice!!) session for Devils, their workrate has been outstanding

Fog returns

Reminds me of the old days at WNIR, Solihull & Peterbough

Although Peterborough didn't help one pre season by having on ice fireworks to greet the teams. Game delayed for 20 minutes for the smoke to disappear.

All we ask for is no injuries, no stupid penalties etc

Although the type of player that takes a stupid major penalty in a pre season game wouldn't get over the doorstep with the current Devils management

Can anyone else hear the Fog Horn?

Ice is getting wetter by the minute

Brest netminder saves a cheeky Harding back hander

Total domination by Devils as we enter final 5 minutes

Albatros with a rare chance but soon snuffed out by Devils

Gametime 58:44

John Lawless logic in play "Don't win by so much that nobody comes to second game"

Final score DEVILS 7 Albatros 1

If any of my other regular texters are available for the pre season games please text me

Devils MoM - Ben Bowns

Neither of my texters speak French so they missed the Albatros MoM

Thanks to Nigej & Jon J for stepping in at short notice.

Hopefully I will be better organised for Sundays game against Brest so join me

Good Night Everyone - NOS DA PAWB - Bonsoir
