Scott Pitt’s goal with under five minutes to go made the difference as Braehead Clan edged an 11-goal thriller to take the points from Fife Flyers.
Both teams didn’t disappoint in what was another exciting chapter in this rivalry with goals flying in at either side.
Matt Beca was first on the scoresheet after 27 seconds after a lapse in concentration from the Flyers defence.
But the home side were level as Ric Jackman’s effort was followed by Chase Schaber, who struck to restore parity.
Alex Leavitt put Braehead 2-1 up shortly after with a shot at the back door after he was assisted by Matt Keith in the move.
However Schaber drew Fife level again before the end of the opening period and the interval came to allow both sets of fans to get their breath back.
The intensity didn’t let up and Clan came flying out of the traps in the second session, with Craig Peacock making it 3-2 within the opening minute.
But three minutes later, Flyers tied the game as former Clan man Brendan Brooks set up Matt Sisca, who secured the finish.
Sisca did the same thing again immediately after the restart as Braehead went behind for the first time in the game, but Peacock picked up his second to make it four goals apiece.
Both teams traded goals again early in the third as Kyle Haines put Fife in front once more, but Daniel Åhsberg got the Clan back on an even keel once again.
Braehead edged in front and took the game as Pitt was set up by Beca to send his shot beyond Shane Owen in Fife’s goal to clinch the points.
