COURAGEOUS CLAN completed a four-weekend as they defeated Stars at home on Saturday and on Tayside 24 hours later.

Barely 24 hours had passed since the Clan won 3-1 at home to set up the chance of taking two road points and they managed to do it.

There were no goals in the first period on Sunday, but opportunities at either end from Brendan Brooks and Jimmy Jensen were saved by the respective opposing goalies.

However, like Saturday night, Dundee drew first blood as Omar Pacha's delivery from the right was finish low and backhanded by Brian Hart to take the lead.

Braehead levelled when Clan's Jacob Doty and Stars goalie Travis Fullerton came together for the loose puck, which broke for Adam Brace, who scored on the wraparound. Within a couple of minutes, John Tripp's men went in front when Ryan Potulny fired in from the left and the black disc broke for Brooks at the back post to tap in. Braehead went 3-1 in front five minutes into the third as Ville Hämäläinen found Matt Haywood for the close range finish.

Then Brooks added a fourth a couple of minutes.

Former Clan defenceman Cody Carlson scored with a rocket to close the gap to two before Hart's second pulled the Stars to within one with six minutes left#

On Saturday, the Stars had the lead in the first period to give them a decent start.

Cody Carlson's shot was initially saved by Clan goalie Ryan Nie, only for Gabriel Levesque to tuck away the rebound.

The lead didn't last for long as Braehead returned the favour with a goal on the powerplay, courtesy of Landon Oslanski.

The hosts went ahead in the second period when Ryan Potulny's efffort on Stars goalie Travis Fullerton caused havoc around the Dundee crease. The goalie moved the initial shot on, but Brendan Brooks stuck away the rebound and put the Clan ahead.

They increased that lead to two through Jacob Doty and saw the game out.
