One down, three to go, as Racers eye more silverware

Murrayfield Racers round-off their regular season fixtures in the Scottish National League with a home game against Kilmarnock Thunder on Sunday (face-off 6.00pm).

There will be a party atmosphere at Murrayfield Ice Rink, with the Racers set to be presented with the SNL trophy after securing the title in their first season back on the ice.

The Racers are yet to lose in Scottish competitions this term and will be eager to end their league campaign with another victory.

Despite clinching the title, defender Ross Borwick says the team are hungry to win more trophies this term.

“Winning the league and doing so unbeaten has been a fantastic achievement for the boys,” he said. “We hope to continue this form for the rest of the competitions we still have to play for.

“It’s been great to play a part in winning with such a good group of lads. Hopefully we can keep this winning streak going and add some more silverware to the trophy cabinet.”

Murrayfield are still in the hunt for three other trophies, with the Scottish Cup next on the agenda a week on Sunday.

The Racers head to Kirkcaldy Kestrels for the second leg of their semi-final tie with a 6-0 lead and will be confident of completing an aggregate victory.

They turn their attentions to the play-offs the following weekend with a quarter-final tie at home to Solway Stingrays.

Ice-time restrictions elsewhere mean the clash will be a one-off fixture, with the winners qualifying for the Final Four Weekend to be held at Dundee Ice Arena on the last weekend in March.

The Racers also have the Stuart Robertson Cup in their sights. They will face North Ayrshire Wild in a two-legged final over the Easter weekend.
