Flames miserable start to 2020 continues with heavy defeat against Stars. 6th January 2020
Guildford Flames suffered their second heavy defeat in as many nights after suffering a 6-2 home loss at the hands of the Dundee Stars on Sunday.
Despite 51 shots on the Stars net, the visiting side from Scotland skated away with the victory.
Having suffered a 6-2 defeat at Sheffield against the Steelers on Saturday, Flames were looking to bounce back to winning ways at the Spectrum.
The visitors opened the scoring on the powerplay at 5:42 when Jagger Dirk netted. A few minutes later it was the turn of Kevin Dufour to make it 2-0 to the Stars. Flames cut the deficit when Jamie Crooks scored after 18:16 to leave it a one goal lead for Dundee at the end of the opening period.
Dundee hit Flames for four goals in the course of thirteen minutes in the middle period, with strikes from Drydn Dow, and a brace from Dufour to give Stars a commanding 5-1 lead after 40 minutes.
Just 39 seconds into the third period Matt Marquardt extended the visitors lead. There was still time for Flames to pick up a consolation goal in the final minute of play when Jordan Rowley netted, but overall it was little consolation for Guildford who will certainly want to forget the opening weekend of the new year.
