​Peterborough Phantoms stormed to their highest score of the National League season by bashing Sheffield Steeldogs 11-2 at Planet Ice.

​The city side have been ruthless against the bottom two as they have twice reached 10 goals in games against Bristol Pitbulls.

The big win over Sheffield, which featured hat-tricks for Luke Ferrara and Lukas Sladkovsky, was the perfect response to an 8-3 defeat at MK Lightning 24 hours earlier.

The net result of the weekend was Phantoms dropping a place to fifth ahead of two tough games at third-placed Swindon Wildcats on Saturday and at home to second-placed MK on Sunday (5.30pm).

Ferrara shot Phantoms into a first minute lead against Sheffield, but the city side didn’t score again until Ivan Björkly Nordstrom struck in the 19th minute.

Goals did then flow regularly with Austin Mitchell-King (2), Ales Padelek, Ferrara and Nordstrom all on target in the second period.

Sladvoksky struck a third period hat-trick and Ferrara completed his treble 15 minutes from time.
