Sheffield Steelers now have a won 5 lost 4 record

Have your say

Sheffield Steelers’ search for consistency continues after an unexpected home loss to Fife last night.

Coached by Marc Lefebvre, in Doug Christiansen’s absence, (family bereavement) the side slipped up 3-2 to the Flyers at iceShffield.

Jordan Fulton and Bobby Chaumont put Fife 2-0 up at the first period break.

And while Robert Dowd at 24.17 got one back, the Scots went further ahead through Chaumont.

Jonathan Phillips raised hope with a reply at 53.57 but there was no equaliser.

Tonight Steelers travel to Coventry Blaze: full weekend wrap up in The Star tomorrow.
