Blackburn Hawks : 2
TC Cars Solihull Barons : 10
The TC Cars Solihull Barons quickly put Saturday’s narrow defeat at the Solway Sharks to bed with an emphatic win at the Blackburn Hawks on Sunday to ensure a respectable points haul from the weekend long road trip. With the two sides having met in a closely fought tie only a week ago at Solihull where the result was only decided in the final minutes, more of the same might have been predicted. The Barons however seemed to have quite different ideas in what would be a difficult night for the Hawks.
The game got off to a bad start for the Barons however when D-man Richard Crowe took a stick to the mouth and was forced to leave the game after only two minutes. This did little to unsettle the Barons and by the fifth minute Matt Maurice had fired home for the game’s opener. Mid-period the Solihull lead was doubled courtesy of Callum Bowley before Bowley provided for Tom Soar on a power-play in the final minute of the period. More here
