Sheffield Steelers took just 90 seconds to start the destruction of Hull Stingrays tonight.
Mike Ramsay, the man of the match, finished off a power play move featuring Jeff Legue and Ashley Tait...and from that moment, the identity of the match victors was not in doubt.
Tait and Neil Clark made it 3-0 inside the first 16 minutes.
The middle period was barren barring fighting penalties for Matt Stephenson and Hull’s Dominic Osman.
The last session was a 3-0 whitewash, with Tait, Ramsay and player coach Ryan Finnerty getting in on the act. In the end, a comfortable 6-0 win for the champions.
