Kilmarnock Storm V Moray Typhoons report 06/01/18


It was a disappointing night for the Kilmarnock Storm on Saturday as they fell to a 7-3 loss at home to an impressive Moray Typhoons. The loss ended a fantastic 5 match winning streak for the Storm that started way back November.

The Typhoons got off to a brilliant start and were 3-0 up after only 7 minutes of play. Killie pulled a goal back early in the second from Parker which kept them in the game. The second period ended with a flurry of goals, and the Typhoons went into the 3rd with a 5-2 lead. It was scrappy 3rd and the game was put to bed 9 minutes from time as John Paul Jack gave the visitors a 4-goal cushion. There was enough time for Parkin to get on the scoresheet but it was definitely too little too late. The goal scoring ended 1 minute from time and the fixture ended with an emphatic 7-3 win for the away side.

I spoke to Kilmarnock Head coach Myles Watson one how the game went for the Galleon based team. On the oppositions performance and how the game went for his team, he said:

“First of all, we would like to congratulate Moray Typhoons on their deserved victory. They worked hard, stuck to the game plan and got the win.

“Frustratingly for us we did not and paid the price. Our attitude, effort and ‘togetherness’ were lacking and we paid the price. Our recent winning streak has been built on a strong work ethic sticking to our defensive and offensive systems and utilising every player’s qualities, but on Saturday we got it wrong.”

On Saturdays game, Myles thinks his side were just that pace behind Moray in terms of performance.

He stated: “In terms of Saturday’s game we didn’t match Moray’s work rate or aggressiveness in attack in the first period which cost us dearly. An unpunished clear check to the head on our netminder Cogsy, who ended up in hospital, unsettled us resulting in a 0-3 deficit at the end of the first. We showed some character to pull it back to 3-1 early in the 2nd but lost a quick goal to restore Moray’s 3 goal lead.”

After the loss, Myles thinks his side have dramatically improved recently especially during their winning run in comparison to previous seasons. He knows the side will come back stronger ahead of this Saturdays away game away to the Aberdeen Lynx.

He said: “Although disappointed to end the win streak, its only one game and we are vastly improved on previous season so rest assured the confidence and desire will be back for weekend. We are a strong unit and will regroup at training, work hard and focus on a difficult trip to Aberdeen on Saturday.”

The loss puts the Storm in 7th and equal on 16 points, with the Typhoons and Capitals but below them because of goal difference.
