Murrayfield Racers 2  Dynamos 7   26Apr70  Play Offs Final  1st Leg

Report by Bernard Stocks – IceHockey Herald No15 – June 1970

Glasgow Dynamos came, saw and conquered a Racers outfit, which sorely missed Lawrie Lovell and were further handicapped by the recurrence of a knee injury which restricted Willie Clark’s mobility. Dynamos, for whom Danny Ballantyne and jimmy Purcell were missing, looked fitter and faster, and, with Robert Stevenson accorded more freedom than he normally allowed, the Glasgow boys dictated the course of the match almost from the start. Clark had to move sharply to one of R Stevenson’s rockets in the second minute, and immediately appeared in trouble with his leg, although he seemed spry enough in blocking the next few shots. Hester gave the visitors the lead when he tipped in a long range drive by R Stevenson, and the latter began to run riot, and pumped in two goals in twenty five seconds. McMillan was working like a Trojan for Racers, and the big fellow deservedly scored just before the end of the period.

Nelson had his busiest spell of the match in the opening half of the middle period, and saved well from Kerr and Inglis. McMillan, who was having a fine game, awakened Racers hopes when he angled home an Inglis pass. Dynamos protested strongly that the puck had hit the post and come out. Visions of Murrayfield pulling level were quickly dispelled, however, when R Stevenson completed his hat-ttrick.

Two early goals in the final frame by R Stevenson and W Lavety put Racers in real trouble. A Lavety was the kingpin of the well marshalled visitng defence , and, with Reilly having one of those games which we hope will not recur to him even in a nightmare, only Kerr and Archibald carried any danger to Nelson. The final score of the game gave Robert Stevenson a nap hand, and set Racers an almost impossible task at Crossmyloof next Sunday
