Guildford Flames celebrated a 4-2 home win against Sheffield in yesterday's game (12 February).

A 3rd period hat trick by Ian Watters helped the Flames get their first win over the Sheffield Steelers.

Late in the opening period, a goal from Rhett Rachinski had the Flames at an advantage by the break.

Matt Marquardt levelled the match just over six minutes into the middle frame - the visitors also had a great chance to take a lead at the end of the 2nd during a nearly 2 minute 5 on powerplay. 

A solid Flames penalty began the final period with with the teams still even. 

Just over 5 minutes into the final session, Watters secured the Flames ahead with a loose puck.

Levi Nelson hit back for the Steelers, but Watters responded with his second goal of the game less than 3 minutes later.

A third and final goal from Watters set the Flames in a secure lead and finalised the club's first Elite League win over Sheffield. 

Head coach Paul Dixon said: "Against a team as talented and experienced as Sheffield, to go to the 3rd tied instead of giving them a chance to shut it down for the last 20 was a key factor."

He continued: "At even, both teams have to keep playing for the win, and it was exciting to see Ian make good on those chances to help us get the offence we needed to pull it out."
