Slough Jets 3, Swindon Wildcats 4
Slough Jets missed several chances as they lost 4-3 at home to the Swindon Wildcats on Saturday.
The score was locked at 3-3 in the final period, and seemingly destined for overtime, when Jonas Hoog popped up with the winner for Swindon with less than five minutes to play.
The game was a topsy-turvy affair, and both sides held the lead at different stages.
The Wildcats scored the only goal of the first period when new signing Jan Kostal netted on 8.52, with assists from Hoog and Aku Pekkarinen.
The teams shared five goals in an entertaining second period, which saw Slough level through Dan Davies’ powerplay goal on 22.22 but Swindon edged back in front when Hoog scored his first on 29.52. Ales Padelek made it 2-2 on 36.43 and Mindy Kieras gave the Jets the lead with 36 seconds remaining in the period.
But there was still time for Ryan Watt to make it 3-3 going into the final period.
Both teams created and missed chances in the third period, but Hoog won the game for the Wildcats with a goal on 55.11. Despite playing for more than a minute with a player advantage the Jets couldn’t find a late equaliser.

Bracknell Bees 6, Slough Jets 2
A late fightback wasn’t enough for the Jets, who lost their second game of the weekend 6-2 at the Bracknell Bees on Sunday.
The home side raced into a 5-1 lead by the end of the second period, and won the game comfortably, despite a late rally in the third period by the visitors.
Lukas Smital opened the scoring with a short-handed goal on 1.58 and Scott Spearing netted the Bees’ second on 8.43.
Chris Wiggins piled on the agony with the Bee’s third on 9.17 and Smital’s second made it 4-0 on 14.53.
Darius Pliskauskas (pictured) pulled one back for the visitors on 18.38, while Dan Scott served time for a slashing penalty, but Tony Redmond scored the only goal of the second period to make it 5-1 on 27.04.
Pliskauskas netted his second of the night with a powerplay goal on 46.54, but the result was put beyond doubt when Ollie Bronniman scored on 53.07 to make the final score 6-2.
