BBC Sport - Belfast Giants have mixed weekend with win and defeat against Sheffield Steelers

Giants have mixed weekend against Sheffield

Belfast Giants have a mixed weekend as Saturday's 2-1 over-time home win over Sheffield is followed by Sunday's 4-1 reverse against the Steelers at the SSE Arena.

Chris Higgins hit Belfast's winner in over-time in Saturday's game but after he puts the Giants ahead on Sunday, Sheffield fought back to take a comfortable victory.

Despite the defeat, Giants player-coach Derrick Walser said he is "excited" about the remainder of the season.

"There are going to be a lot of swings during the rest of the campaign," Walser told BBC Sport NI.
