Nottingham Lions : 2
TC Cars Solihull Barons : 13
NIHL Midlands Cup
The TC Cars Solihull Barons notched a comfortable and convincing win at Nottingham Lions on Sunday evening getting their Midlands Cup off to a very positive start.
Niklas Ottosson, a surprise returnee last week for the Barons, showed that he is still a big offensive asset for Solihull with the opening goal, a short range effort from the back post within two minutes of the puck drop. In a period largely played in the Nottingham end of the ice, strong play from Thomas Hovell in the Lions net did well to keep the Solihull goal tally down. The only other goal in the first twenty came from Adam Brittle who broke clear on the penalty kill before slotting the puck into the net. More here.
