Steeldogs have a free weekend in between two mid-week League clashes, so will be holding their Players’ Presentation Night on Saturday.
Their first mid-week clash was last Tuesday and after leading the game for nearly 50 minutes, Basingstoke clawed their way back in the last 10 minutes to win 5-4.
Scorers were Edgars Bebris, Scott Morris and man of the match Lloyd Gibson, two.
Andre Payette is now hoping the rest this weekend will give some bruised bodies a chance to rest before the final three league games and before the pending Quarter Final Play-off game on April 2, probably against Manchester.
Steeldogs next home game is on Wednesday, March 23 v Milton Keynes Lightning, 7.30pm with another special offer of Kids Go Free.
Dogs say they are delighted that their netminder, Ben Bowns has been selected as part of the initial Great Britain senior squad, the final team selection will be announced in April.
