The first period yielded a single goal in favour of the visitors when Luke Ferrara opened the scoring at 13.42.

Ciaran Long managed a shorthanded delayed penalty goal at 32.49 to level at 2-2 but Zubek made it 2-3 at 34.10 with a powerplay goal and Cesky made it 2-4 at 38.38 with a delayed penalty goal.

A busy week of three games for the Slough Jets started at home to take on Sheffield Steeldogs.
Sheffield took everyone by surprise by netting the opening goal of the game at 1.08 when Lloyd Gibson finished off from Bebris and Brittle before both teams were offered powerplay chances which neither converted leaving the end of period score 0-1 despite Slough rattling the goal frame a couple of times.
With just a single shot difference in the second period the competitiveness continued in the next period, this time the favour swinging in favour of the visitors. At 38.48 Frantisek Bakrlik fired a shot on the goal which was back out again quickly and eventually play stopped for consideration. Referee Joy Tottman consulted both linesmen and the goal judge then correctly awarded the equalising goal and the middle period ended 1-1.
It took just 44 seconds of the third period for Slough to take the lead as Aaron Connolly netted the game winning goal from Matt Towalski. Again there was just a single shot in the count between the teams and with no further scoring at 59.00 Andre Payette called the visitors timeout and continued the game with an extra attacker swapped for his netminder but Slough closed out the win.
Slough stats: Connolly, Bakrlik 1+0; Rose, Towalski 0+1. Net: Rockman (60.00) 35/1
