Solihull opened the scoring after eight minutes with Josh Bruce finding the net off of a feed from Luke Brittle in the eighth minute before the home side levelled up thanks to Ryan Johnson. By the period end Niklas Ottosson had worked his magic on the powerplay to the end however the home side no doubt felt a bit hard done by after they had a goal washed out. More here….

Sunday evening saw the TC Cars Solihull Barons register their first points of the 2018-19 Moralee with a convincing win over the Nottingham Lions. While tougher opposition will come as the season progresses, Solihull coach Dangie Brittle must have been pleased to see a confident performance, forward lines clicking and a goal for teenager Daniel Mulcahy in his Barons debut.

TC CARS SOLIHULL BARONS : 4
BILLINGHAM STARS : 5

Despite having had a disappointing 17-18 season, the Billingham Stars had shown themselves keen to bounce back this year. A spirited and narrow loss to league title holders the Sheffield Steeldogs on Saturday night showed that nothing could be taken for granted from the Teeside team and so it would prove for the Barons.

The first five minutes of the game was played almost exclusively in the Barons end with the visitors continually testing the Solihull defence and netminder Sam Hewitt. On eight minutes the visitors would make the most of a late-hit penalty called on Barons captain Josh Bruce when James Moss flicked the puck over Hewitt’s blocker for the evening’s opener.
