Guildford Flames suffer back-to-back weekend defeats

Published at 10:33am 6th November 2017.

Guildford Flames suffered back-to-back defeats over the weekend in what was a tough couple of games for Paul Dixon's side.

Saturday's match against Nottingham ended in a 2-1 defeat after going into overtime.

The Flames had initially pulled the scores level in the second period, but a Zack Phillips goal in the fourth period sealed the win for Nottingham.

On Sunday Guildford returned to home ice for their match against Coventry, but again the Flames couldn't seem to find their form of previous weeks.

Coventry took the lead in the first period with two goals, before Mikael Lidhammar pulled one back for Guildford.

But Coventry pulled away with goals in the second and third periods to win the game 4-1.

“It was a tough night,” conceded Head Coach Paul Dixon. “Coventry played well and we just couldn’t seem to sync up with any regularity.   

"Teams often use the word flat when trying to describe it, and that might be apt in this case.

“Looking at it another way, you can’t ignore what the other team did.  It was great penalty killing by the Blaze, within a well-played game by them overall, so we have to credit them for their role in putting us on the mat and keeping us there.”

“Everyone was working hard, so it was not like they didn’t try but in the end something wasn’t quite there.  All we can do is get back to training and try to have a better output when we get back at it on Saturday.”

Up next for Guildford is Edingburgh in the league on Saturday, before an away trip to Braehead on Sunday.
