Edinburgh Capitals
3 - 2
Braehead

Braehead Clan took a Challenge Cup point - but lost 3-2 in overtime to Edinburgh Capitals at Murrayfield.

 

Clan started well and Matt Keith was the one to open the scoring for the second night in a row, finishing a sweet one timer from Craig Peacock’s square pass.

 

Edinburgh got a foothold of the game and Matt Tipoff levelled as he swept home from close range following good stick work from Garrett Milan.

 

The Caps continued in the same vein in the second period and took advantage of a five-on-three powerplay early in the session as Sean Beattie applied a low finish.

 

Clan hit back shortly after when a sustained spell of pressure saw Alex Leavitt tee up Scott Pitt, who swept home for his third goal of the season.

 

Both teams couldn’t be separated in the third period and the game went to the nervy period of overtime with two points in the balance.

 

Pavel Vorobyov was the man to clinch the extra point for the Caps when he found himself in a one-on-one situation with Zajkowski and poking the puck into the net to clinch the win for the home side.
