TC Cars Solihull Barons : 10
Milton Keynes Thunder : 4
Despite the sun beaming down and temperatures outside in the high 20s, ice hockey is back with us and the TC Cars Solihull Barons began their pre-season with a convincing win over the Milton Keynes Thunder in a challenge tie on Sunday evening.
For the Barons it was a chance to shake off the Summer and see how some of their off season signings would fit into their lines. For the Thunder, having been heavily reconstructed over the Summer, it was a chance to help gel their squad, built from the remnants of last season’s team, step-ups from their under 18s and signings from the now defunct NIHL Coventry Blaze.
