Champagne celebration for Clan

Joel Champagne and Kevin Bergin both scored twice as the Braehead Clan eased to an 8-4 Elite League win over the Hull Stingrays.

Jereme Tendler had put Hull ahead early on but Champagne's brace plus goals from Joe Cullen, Bergin and Tristan Harper had the Scots 5-1 ahead at the end of the first period.

A Lee Esders marker and Bergin's second extended the lead further before the Stingrays mounted a fightback with goals from Sylvain Cloutier, Carl Lauzon and Guillaume Doucet.

The Clan had the final say, though, with Neil Trimm completing the scoring late in the contest.
