Once again, Cheltenham's fast start was to prove decisive. Goals by Tom Hunt (2), Rudi Poster (Photo: Trevor Hyde) and Giulio Sartorello put them 4-0 up in no time at all - and the lead stretched to 6-2 by the middle section of the second period. Hunt finished with five goals and Polster four.
Later, Manchester made it four wins from four matches as they beat Solihull 12-8. A feature of the game was the power shooting of Manchester from the arc, notably bringing goals from Isaac Wass, Spilios Kaloudis and Joel Leighton.
