The Jes secured a play-off pot on Saturday night with a convincing win over Basingstoke Buffalo.


Their likely opponents for the home and away fixtures, scheduled for the weekend of April 14th/15th will be Solent Devils.

Both netminders earned their 'man of the match' awards for outstanding displays between the pipes, performances which kept the score at nil-nil t the first interval, although Aaron Craft was the busier of the two over the first twenty minutes. It was 26:24 when the Jets posted the first goal, a power play set-up by Nathan Darmanin and Lukas Smital for Timo Lindgren to finish. Slough's second was a beautiful four pass interchange between Smital and Harry Harcup which gave Craft no chance of making a save as he was pulled out of position.

The visitors continued to press the Jets net with a better shot count over the second and third periods, but only managed to be Chris Douglas once, at 56:50. By that time, Slough had posted two further goals, a short handed effort Liam Underdown and a well taken finish by Darmanin, scored at 44:31.

A few niggles began to creep into Basingstoke's game in the final period but the officials were quick to step into prevent anything developing and the Buffalo were well aware that they were playing a superior team, confident on their own ice pad.

Jest last fixture of the regular season, an away game at Swindon, has been put back by a week to Easter Sunday, with a 6:15 face-off time.
