Sunday's 7-5 loss to Swindon sees our season end on a disappointing note and one week earlier than we had all hoped. I won't go into the details of what was a horrible and painful night for both players and fans but I would like to take this time to say a quick word of thanks on behalf of the players and management.
The entire MK Lightning team would like to wish all the MK Storm Under 18's the very best of luck this weekend as they take on Sheffield in a bid to make the National Finals. The first leg is at home today, face o ff 18.30 and any hockey fans not able to make it down to Swindon are urged to give the lads some vocal support. All the best lads - You can do it!

All at MK Lightning are excited about the weekend's upcoming Saturday night match as we are due to finally pick up the League Trophy. It will be a tough match against a team that is desperately looking for points to try and secure 3rd place in the league. We will be looking to finish our home season with a victory as it is always more enjoyable to pick up a trophy after a win. Sunday's match sees us travel to Peterborough for the final game of the regular season before the playoffs start next weekend.
We do have a few minor injuries at the moment and players will be rested (primarily on Sunday) as our priority at this point of the year is to go into the following weekend fresh, fit and rested. With so many mid-week games over the last eight weeks players have been playing through illness, injury and fatigue and it is great that we are able to regroup before the key playoff matches.
With one of our three pre season goals left to attain (make Coventry) we will make sure that we do everything in our power to get there and have every chance of lifting more silverware. Over the last few months the support that we have had from our great fans has been overwhelming we look forward to a further great three weeks of hockey. Hope to see you all Saturday night.
Good Luck Tom Mboya

MKL Set For Phantom Visit
Saturday, 17 October 2009
Milton Keynes Lightning are excited to get back to winning ways at home with a tough match tonight against rivals Peterborough Phantoms. After last weekend's poor performance against the Jets were we were dominated for two periods we will be looking to put in a 60 minute performance that both ourselves and fans can be proud of.
Week 8 was the Semi Finals of the Summer Hockey League and saw League leaders Capitals (white) playing third place Penguins (Blacks) - league positions didn't matter - it was winners of todays games going through the the final games next week.
Both games were end to end and went no more than 2 goals apart. Blacks needed assistance from a few extra players as they were short benched, drafted in was Lightnings new D Man Mike Farn and the game went right to the last 2mins to find a winner and the Capitals came up victorious winning 6 - 5.
Game 2 saw Canucks (Blue) without their leader Leigh Jamieson, but again was a very close affair with teams trading goals throughout - final score saw the Blue winning 6-4 with the final goal being an empty net goal
