Kitmart Dundee Stars forward, Elgin Pearce is delighted with the way he and his teammates have been performing recently and expects the team to put another in good week of training before the Quarter-Final match on Friday.
Pearce scored the crucial game-winning-goal in Belfast last Saturday as the Stars netted their second powerplay goal against the Giants just 57 seconds into the third period.
Looking back on last weekend’s only match, Pearce was pleased to pick-up the points. He said:
“I think it was really important, because it was a one-game weekend.
“We knew getting the win would be really nice for going into this coming weekend and we only had one chance to get some points, so we were really happy with that result.”
Dundee have now won their last three matches and that has created some momentum for the Tayside team to carry into this weekend’s Challenge Cup clash and league fixture.
Discussing how important Saturday’s win was for building confidence, Eglin said:
“It was really important, I think it gives the team a lot of confidence and it shows that we can beat the top teams.
“Obviously we have beaten Belfast before this year, so I think it gave us a lot of confidence knowing that we can throw together three-game streaks and start climbing our way back up the standings.”
The Canadian also shared how the team have been working hard in practice and how their hard work is starting to pay-off.
Pearce added: “I think obviously it has been nice to have a couple days off to recharge the batteries and I think this week we will have a really good week of practice.
“Last week we had a really good week of practice going into Belfast and as long as we continue to get better every week then I think we will be ready for the weekend.”
The Stars head coach, Omar Pacha has set this season’s squad the target of creating a lasting legacy and Pearce believes that they can achieve that goal. He said:
“That has been our goal all year and we have established that we have a better team this year than years past and we have a team that is willing to put it down on the line.
“I think we showed that with how we performed in the Challenge Cup and I think we just have to continue to get better and we will be able to give the Dundee fans a lot more excitement this year than in years past.”
This weekend sees the Stars host a double header of games against Glasgow Clan in the Challenge Cup Quarter-Final first leg on Friday at 7:30pm and on Saturday they welcome Coventry Blaze back for an Elite League tie, which will start at 7.00pm. Buy tickets HERE!
