Emily Harris scored the winning goal 12 seconds from time as the Basingstoke Under-10 Bison won a thriller 7 – 6 over visiting Cardiff Devils on Sunday night.
It was Harris who opened the scoring for the hosts and then captain Travis Penny doubled the advantage by the break.
The Devils pulled a goal back early in the second session, but the young Herd hit back with three unanswered goals as Sam Hemming-Maher, Penny and Solomon Stoodley all scored.
The visitors then clawed their way back into the contest with three goals of their own to make the score 5 – 4.
The home side scored again from William Birch but with a minute left Cardiff tied the game 6 – 6. It was left to Emily Harris to make sure the Bison won 7 – 6, the odd goal in 13.
