The Trade-Mart Dundee Stars produced a stunning road win over Sheffield Steelers on Wednesday night, as they upset the league leaders with a defiant defensive performance that saw them extend their winning run to three games.

The Stars once again had a full line-up but had to leave injured imports, Ben Sokay and Colin Joe back in Dundee, although they still came out and played with a high intensity during the first period in Sheffield.

After the opening 20 minutes, the game would still be goalless but there had been a number of clear-cut chances for the Stars to take the lead and they had done well to not gift the Steelers any of their own opportunities.

In fact, the Stars defence had stood strong to block a number of shots and intercept dangerous passes to keep the home side off the scoreboard, but at the other end, Ian Parker, Philippe Sanche, Romans Semjonovs and Elijiah Barriga each came close to putting Dundee into the lead.

Sheffield had also failed to capitalise on the only powerplay of the first period, as Dundee’s Carter Folk was punished for an elbowing foul in the 7th minute, but in the second session the English club would net a powerplay goal.
