Streatham take first win at new Arena with an 11-1 demolition of Milton Keynes.
Sunday is hockey day in South London.
Streatham suffered consecutive defeats as they came unstuck against the high flying Chelmsford and then Invicta.
Streatham had drawn and lost their opening two games at the 1000 seater venue but made sure of two much needed points in front of another decent crowd.
The game started in the best possible way for the Londoners as with only twelve seconds gone, Steven Fisher skated round the back of the net before laying the puck to Callum Best in the slot, and he fired into the top corner of the net.
The home fans were on their feet again with five minutes on the clock as Dom Hopkins found Fisher out on the right wing and he skated in and roofed the puck into the net to make it 3-0.
The Thunder looked shell shocked but got a goal back on the breakaway two minutes later as Connor Pollard found Jamie Randall on the left wing and his fanned shot deceived Redskins goalie Will Sanderson and trickled through his legs.
The goal gave the visitors some belief and they began to frustrate Streatham with some hard forechecking and pressure in the zone. Indeed Sanderson had to be in great form to make saves from Nidal Phillips and Randall again as Streatham struggled to get back to their earlier cohesion.Visit the News page here
