The front running Adelaide Tigers are building up momentum heading down the stretch toward the finals series following a morale boosting 5 - 2 win over their arch rival Adelaide Redwings in a Round 16 Senior A League game recently at the Ice Arena.

 

Former New Zealand scoring star Jeff Pellerin, and local Tamir Dunning scored for the Wings.

 

The Tigers lead 2 - 1 after the opening period, but Dunning’s goal in the second tied the game heading into the last period of play.

 

Ryan O’Handley, Simon Jarrad, Ari Pullinen, Jamie Holland, and Jason Nordin (pictured) all shot single goals in the win for the Tigers, who with the victory improved their season mark to 8 - 3 - 0 - 1 for 25 points. With the loss the Redwings drop to 6 - 5 - 0 - 1, and sitting on 19 points.

 

Pullinen’s goal at 12:29 of the third put the Tigers back in front, and then Holland down from the Premier Division increased the lead near the midway point, on a power play goal from Tim Reeves and Lachlan Jennings. Nordin’s goal from Pullinen, and Andy Young in the dying minutes gave the Tigers the insurance they needed to seal the win.

 

The Redwings outshot the Black n Gold 28 - 26 with Sam O’Neill blocking 26 shots to record the win, while Andrew Glass, filling in during an off week from Premier League duties made 21 saves in the loss for the Wings.
