Braehead Clan suffered a setback in their pre-season preparations as they went down 7-1 to University of Manitoba Bisons.

The Canadian outfit recorded their third win in four on these shores to follow victories over Belfast Giants and Edinburgh Capitals.

Despite the home side starting well, home goalie Gary Russell’s attempted pass out of his own zone was intercepted by Jonah Walysak, who gratefully tucked into the empty net.

Bisons struck again shortly after as Zach Franko squeezed a chance in at Russell’s near post to double their lead.

They made it three when Adam Henry slotted a rebound in after Remi Laurencelle was denied by Russell.

But they ended the period 4-0 up as Nick Zajac finished from close range after combining with Warren Callis with Blake Heinrich adding a fifth early in the second.

Clan eventually got on the scoresheet as Craig Peacock finished off his own rebound after being denied by Spriggs initially.

Despite this, they never really recovered as Michael St Croix made it 6-1 followed by Shawn Bowles rounding off a good night of scoring for the Canadians, ending their tour on a high.
