Beaten Stingrays face exit from Cup

Have your say

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.
