London Raiders forward Jacob Ranson shares his thoughts on their latest matches

London Raiders made a little bit of club history at the weekend, with the first-ever 0-0 draw in their near 30-year existence.

Goalie Michael Gray made 44 saves to deny Streatham in south London, but Raiders could not find a way past Matt Colclough at the other end of the rink as the scoreline ended blank.

Raiders had slipped to a 4-3 home defeat against the same opponents at Lee Valley the night before, despite goals from JJ Pitchley, Jacob Ranson and captain Tom Davis.

And Ranson – who was on the receiving end against Steven Fisher during a line brawl in the second period – looks back over the two meetings in his latest video.
