PETERBOROUGH Phantoms' trip to Swindon Wildcats on Saturday ended in farce as melting ice in the middle of the rink forced the postponement of the game.
A large crowd finally left the rink disappointed after the game was officially called-off almost two hours after the scheduled face-off time.
The weekend didn't get any better for the Phantoms when they lost 6-3 at home to Slough Jets on Sunday.
It was a disappointing performance from the Phantoms, given their encouraging form of late, and former Peterborough netminder Stephen Wall proved to be the main thorn in their side.
