Direct Taxis Solihull Barons : 1
Whitley Warriors : 4
Moralee Play-off Weekend Semi-Final
The Direct Taxis Solihull Barons ended their 2021-22 season this weekend with a semi-final defeat to the Whitley Warriors in the Moralee play-off weekend at Leeds.
The Warriors built up an early game lead courtesy of Shaun Kippin on a bit of a break on six minutes. His speculative long range shot on six minutes only half-caught by Graham Laverick before the puck looped out of his glove and into the net for the opener. The Warriors then doubled down, Harry Harley firing home through traffic from the left hand point off of a face-off in the Barons end. More here.

The Direct Taxis Solihull Barons secured their place at the Moralee play-off weekend in Leeds with an emphatic 6-2 victory (11-5 aggregate) over Sheffield Scimitars on Sunday evening.
After just over three minutes of Sunday’s tie gone the Scimitars cut their aggregate deficit to a single goal as Thomas Palmer slotted the puck home under Graham Laverick from six feet but this would be the closest the Yorkshire side got to over-turning the Barons 1st leg advantage. More here.
