The Lynx fought back from behind to come out on top 6-4 against a tough Kestrels side.
And Lynx coach Barry Carnegie was proud of the character shown by his team in coming back from a first period deficit.
He said: “We knew going into the game this would be a real test of our credentials.
“They are a good young team with experienced coaches and they came out in the first period and played the way we had spoken about starting.
“I was proud of the whole team, the way they showed character to come back in the second period and turn the 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 lead.
“We made adjustments to our system and out-played them all over the ice.
“We now have a free weekend before we face Kilmarnock at home to round off a satisfying year.
“However, all we have done at this point is give ourselves an opportunity for success come April.”
