Belfast Giants celebrated their Elite League triumph by beating Sheffield in Saturday's clash at the Odyssey Arena.

Friday's 5-1 win over Sheffield secured Belfast the title and they recovered from a slow start in Saturday's game.

Colt King put the Steelers ahead with the only goal of the first period.

Craig Peacock, Jeremy Rebek, Gareth Roberts and Jon Pelle scored in a six-minute spell for the Giants in the second period and while Mike Ramsay replied, Peacock added the fifth goal.

King struck the Steelers ahead with a powerplay effort on 15.11 in the opening period.

Peacock levelled with 37 seconds of the restart at the beginning of the second period and three goals in less than two minutes from Rebek, local man Roberts and Pelle then put by Giants firmly in control before the mid-point on the contest.

Ramsay cut Belfast's lead to 4-2 before the end of the second period with another powerplay effort but Peacock's second goal of the night with just under six minutes remaining confirmed Belfast's comfortable win.

The Giants were presented with the Elite League trophy in front of a delighted home attendance of 5,386 spectators.
