Barons tame young Lions

TC Cars Solihull Barons : 13
Nottingham Lions : 0
NIHL Midlands Cup

The TC Cars Solihull Barons skated to a comfortable win over a young Nottingham Lions side to leave the Barons at the top of the NIHL Midlands Cup round robin table.

The Mulcahy brothers got a goal apiece (J&K Davies)

Despite their relative recent fortunes the initial few minutes of the tie featured a young Lions side taking the game to the Barons with a display of high energy play countering the Barons offence and making the most of loose pucks to stage their own counters. On five minutes the Barons got the opener, a close in effort engineered by Adie Brittle to open up the net and with Philip Mulcahy finishing off with a shot over Thomas Hovell’s glove. The Lions stuck to their game-plan but the Barons had their mark and by the 11th minutes had applied enough solvent to see it come unglued. More here
