No match report or statistics available for this game. However, the match programme of 11/10/86 contained a “Blast from the Past” column, written by Mike Grafton, in which the following was shown for this Heineken Division One game, which was later reclassified as a Challenge match (see below):
Lions’ Scorers: Ari Arvila 7+10, Andy Leggatt 4+3, Chris Leggatt 4+1, Janne Lehti 2+7, Gary Bayliss 1+1, Martin Bergin 1+1, Fred Sandford 1+0, Geof Williams 0+2, Eddie Joseph 0+1, Kelly Williams 0+1
“Only a third period hat-trick by Greg Flowers put the brake on a Lions goal-spree. Ari Arvila fell just 3 points short of the League record (for points in one game). His 7 goals were assisted by: Janne (3), Andy (1), Chris (1) and 2 were unassisted. His 10 assists were to Andy (6- 4 goals), Chris (2 -2 goals), Janne (1 -1 goal) and Martin (1).
“Andy Nunn replaced Vesa at the halfway mark as Lions went 12-2 up and performed well against the one-man Deeside attack.
“This game was deleted from league records when Deeside were expelled from the League. It remains on club records as a challenge game.”
