With two away games in Adelaide over the weekend, home fans are tuned into live streams to follow conference leaders Newcastle Northstars.


On Saturday night, the Northstars 4 defeated Adelaide Adrenaline 3 in overtime.


A scoreless first period for the Northstars saw them behind at first intermission, down 0-1. Daniel Berno scored halfway through the second period to tie the game, but Adelaide would take a 1-2 lead at the second intermission.


In the third period, Adelaide scored again to extend its lead to 1-3. Newcastle fought back, with goals from Francis Drolet and Sean Oultram, taking the game to overtime. This goal was the first for Sean since returning in 2022 and his first since 2011.


Beau Taylor scored the game-winning goal after Francis Drolet took a shot that deflected off the toe of the Adelaide goaltender to the open stick of Taylor.


On Sunday night, Adelaide 3 defeated Newcastle 2 in a shootout.


Another scoreless first period for the Northstars saw them behind at first intermission, down 0-1. Alexander Yuill capitalised on a deflection off the Adelaide goaltender to score the second period's lone goal, equalising the game at 1-1. In the third period, Adelaide took the lead halfway through the period, with Kyler Matthews scoring for the Northstars in the last minute to equalise the game 2-2.


A scoreless overtime saw the game go to a shootout where Adelaide would secure the 3-2 win.
