Slough’s depth advantage helped them to a clinical first period lead. Both netminders made some good saves and it take a Doug Sheppard strike at 9.59 to open the scoring. Bowns was still in good form at the other end and kept Slough out until Darius Pliskauskas scored at 17.27. Slava Koulikov picked up the game’s first penalty at 18.06 but Sheppard broke away shorthanded just 12 seconds into killing the penalty and made it 3-0.

The home team enjoyed double the shots of their opponents in the second period but failed to find the back of the net but at the other end Tom Squires had managed to squeeze the puck past Gregg Rockman for the only time in the game at 21.29. Sheffield then failed to capitalise on two powerplay opportunities and Slough failed to use one and as the remaining time ticked out the period the teams took the interval with the home team 3-1 ahead.

Slough again dominated the final period and decided the game with Adam Greener scoring Slough’s fourth goal at 49.07. The home team killed a 5 on 3 penalty and Scott Spearing and Peter Vaisanen exchanged markers ending the game in the penalty box but Slough ran out comfortable winners.
