Invicta Dynamos’ dream of winning two trophies this season ended in disappointment at the weekend when they lost 9-6 on aggregate to the Wightlink Raiders in the National Ice Hockey League Southern Play-off final.
 
Kevin Parrish’s side had already won the NIHL Southern Cup, along with finishing second in South Division 1, but they were unable to round off their successful campaign with another trophy.
 
Dynamos went into Sunday’s second leg at the Silver Blades rink trailing 3-2 from Saturday’s first leg on the Isle of Wight.
 
 
 
And Invicta still trailed by one goal after the first period which ended 2-2, with Dynamos’ goals from Anthony Leone and Billy Phillips cancelled out by Raiders’ strikes from Corey Watkins and Owen Griffiths.
 
Raiders then moved 4-3 ahead in the second period courtesy of goals from Cesky Jaroslav and Ryan Webb, with Dynamos replying through Callum Fowler.
 
So Invicta went into the final period trailing 7-5 on aggregate and the Raiders wrapped up the trophy with two more goals from Stephen Balmer and Cesky, with Dynamos managing only one more in reply from Arran Strawson.
