Robby Sandrock savours win in last appearance at Odyssey

Defenceman Robby Sandrock helped the Belfast Giants to a 1-0 home win over Cardiff Devils in his final game at the Odyssey after three years.

The Giants hold a slender advantage after Friday night's play-off quarter-final first leg at the Odyssey Arena, with the second leg to come on Sunday.

The hosts were rewarded for a strong start with Ray Sawada steering the puck past netminder Ben Bowns for the only goal of the game on 16:17.

"We haven't had the season we would have liked but it's a four-game season for us now and if we win those four games we will be play-off champions," said Sandrock.
