Fife silenced the home support five minutes into the second period when Casey Haines fired the puck past Stephen Murphy to make the score 2-1 .

A second goal from man of the match Robbie Sandrock on a Giants power play settled the nerves and a further power play strike and first goal of the season, this time from Jeff Mason, made the score 4-1 .

The Giants had already qualified for the next round of the Challenge Cup, but their latest win will still be welcomed by head coach Doug Christiansen.
