Hull Stingrays face an uphill battle to make it through to the last four of the Challenge Cup after losing the first leg of their quarter-final with Belfast Giants 3-1.

The Giants – who went into the match after a 6-1 defeat at Nottingham – broke the deadlock in the 17th minute. A loose puck was tapped home by Andrew Fournier with Ben Bowns committed to the initial shot.

Belfast enjoyed a greater share of chances and possession against subdued Hull in the second period and deservedly doubled their lead via Sam Roberts at 36.47.
