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.
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
