DIRECT TAXIS SOLIHULL BARONS : 12
BLACKBURN HAWKS : 5
The Direct Taxis Solihull Barons had a convincing win over the Blackburn Hawks in a goal-fest of a game on Sunday evening with both Niklas Ottosson and James Smith earning themselves hat-tricks.
Niklas Ottosson showed that his old habit of scoring short handed goals was still in fine fettle within the first minute of the game. An early holding penalty by Rich Crowe had given the visitors the man advantage but Ottosson robbed the Hawks of the puck on the Barons blue line, before breaking up the ice and firing in the opener. The Barons lead would be short lived however with the Hawks converting the same powerplay less than a minute later, Jared Dickinson with the goal. More here
