Invicta Dynamos crashed out of the NIHL Cup after the Steatham Redskins produced a stunning semi-final comeback to win in sudden death penalties on Sunday.

After Saturday’s first leg ended 4-4, Streatham silenced the home fans by opening the scoring after only 13 seconds.

The Mos hit back in style, scoring five goals in 16 minutes through Andy Smith (2), Juraj Huska, Elliott Knell, Danny Hammond to leave the game looking like it was over before the first buzzer.

However, Streatham reduced the deficit by scoring the next two goals before Callum Fowler made it 6-3 and Marek Nahlik scored the seventh shortly after.

Smith teed up Huska to make it 8-3 and it looked all over for the visitors but they scored against the run of play to give them some hope.

But Smith soon made it 9-4 and a place in the final was well within reach – that was before American forward Sean Scarbrough had his say.

He scored twice in a minute to put his side right back in the contest before he completed a stunning hat-trick to make it 9-7.

Former Invicta man Callum Best made it 9-8 with just over a minuteto go before Scarbrough fired home the equaliser and send the clash to penalties.

The first three nominated shooters all scored so it went to sudden death and Invicta’s hopes ended after Streatham netminder Taylor saved from Arran Strawson.
