Impressive Invicta Dynamos cap fine weekend with victory over EIHL leaders Wightlink Raiders
Invicta Dynamos came from four goals down to beat league leaders Wightlink Raiders 6-4 on Sunday night.
It capped a fantastic weekend for the Mos, who had won 7-2 away at Streatham Redskins the day before.
The Mos finished the weekend six points behind Raiders with a game in hand.

Streatham, like the Mos, needed wins sooner rather than later to keep their hopes of honours this season alive.
Early goals from Marek Nahlik and Arran Strawson put the Mos two up against Streatham and they had a 3-2 lead going into the final period, after Nahlik had added his second.
A blistering last third saw the Mos net four more times, with Nahlik converting twice more and both Andy Smith and Callum Fowler getting in on the act.
That set the Mos up nicely for the home visit of the Raiders but things started badly.
With 30 minutes played the visitors were 4-0 up but a goal from Fowler on 31:08 started the comeback.
Hammond and Fowler both struck efforts against the frame and Smith registered another to make it 4-2 going into the third period.
Once more the Mos hit four in the last session, to claim a memorable win. D-man Shaun Wild pulled another back, Fowler scored twice and Slovak forward Nahlik added to his weekend total, to complete the comeback.
