A PETERBOROUGH Phantoms’ overtime strike inflicted a winless weekend on Swindon Wildcats in NIHL South One on Sunday, although they did have the consolation of a point to show for their efforts after a 3-2 defeat.

The Cats were beaten 5-2 by Raiders on home ice on Saturday, but came up short in their hopes of a return to winning ways at Peterborough as Glenn Billing struck a late winner for the home side.

Toms Rutkis broke the deadlock for the Cats, but Peterborough’s James Ferrara swiftly restored parity to ensure it was all-square at the end of the first period.

Again it was honours even in the second session as Ferrara netted his second of the night for the hosts, only for that to be cancelled out by Adam Harding for the Cats to make it 2-2 at the buzzer.

Neither side was able to must a winning goal in the final period, meaning overtime was required to settle matters and it was the Phantoms who were able to edge home.
