After the game head coach Martin Grubb spoke to Sharks TV and said: “You can call it a character win, I really didn’t like our first period, I asked for some push-back.

“I thought we had no energy, we created too many turn-overs, we looked a bit lethargic in our general play, and it’s not what we’re used to.

“There were a few words said at the end of the first period, just in terms of questioning the want of the players and their mentality. “We’ve been so used to as a club in the last two, three, four years in winning and being told that we’re good and we’re skilled.

“Sometimes you’ve got to roll your sleeves up and to be fair that first five minutes of the second period we were really good. We showed a bit of character.

“I wanted to see us win the (third) period, if you win the period you’re obviously going to win the game.

“You’ve got to give Miles Finney (Widnes’ netminder) credit, I thought some of the saves he made were really good, he had a lot of rubber thrown at him.

“Apart from the one goal we conceded I thought we were good in the third period, but I’d like to see us put teams to bed.”

This Saturday is Halloween night at Dumfries Ice Bowl, the Sharks entertain the Blackburn Hawks and spectators can wear fancy dress if they wish, face off is at 7 pm.
