Giants in vital league win over Panthers

The Belfast Giants keep themselves in contention for another Elite League crown by winning 5-4 away to leaders Nottingham Panthers.

Former Giants player Brandon Benedict put the Panthers ahead but Craig Peacock, David Phillips, Greg Stewart and Robby Sandrock replied to put Belfast in charge.

Jonathan Weaver and Kelsey Wilson netted to leave only a goal between the teams, but Keefe hit Belfast's fifth goal before Jordan Fox's late Panthers strike.
