PLAY-OFF chasing Bracknell quickly put the result of their English Premier League clash with Romford Raiders beyond any doubt last weekend.
Needing a win to keep pressure on rivals Swindon, the Bees netted four times inside five minutes, with Nicky Watt helping himself to a quickfire hat-trick, on the way to a 13-3 success.
Young goalie Frankie Sabine, on his first start between the Raiders pipes, was beaten twice more before the end of the period as Bees showed no mercy.
Michal Pinc made it 7-0 inside two minutes of the second period, but Raider of the Year Matt Turner got the visitors on the board before a late double from Greg Randall and Adam Bicknell took Bracknell's tally to nine.
The hosts hit double figures through Pinc, before player-coach Claude Dumas netted twice in the space of 14 seconds to end Sabine's night in the 49th minute, only for back-up Andrew Boot to be beaten by Shane Moore soon after. Watt and EPL player of the year Jaroslav Cesky assisted to pick up their seventh points of the game and there were still 10 minutes left to play, with Bees 13-1 to the good.
But it was Romford who made the remaining additions to the scoresheet, through Jozef Sladok and Danny Marshall's late powerplay effort.
Bees: Nicky Watt 3+4 Claude Dumas* 2+4 Michal Pinc* 2+4 Greg Randall 2+2 Jaroslav Cesky* 1+6 Terry Miles 1+3 Adam Bicknell 1+2 Shane Moore 1 Andrius Kaminskas* 0+1.
Raiders: Matt Turner 1+1 Jozef Sladok* 1 Danny Marshall 1 Dean Tonks 0+1 Frankie Harvey 0+1 Steve Paris 0+1 JJ McGrath 0+1 Darius Pliskauskas* 0+1.
