Barons stun league leading Solway


The Direct Taxis Solihull Barons capped off a productive weekend with a well earned win over the previously undefeated league leaders, the Solway Sharks, on Sunday evening.

The game was barely two minutes old before the Sharks Richard Bentham took offence at Phil Mulcahy and got a bit rough before Matt Maurice intervened. The resulting powerplay was capitalised on by James Smith with a wrap around goal to give Solihull the early lead. Despite this, the Barons would enter a spell of being unable to clear their lines against a strong Sharks offence and this pressure bolstered by a couple of powerplays was converted into an equaliser after eight minutes and then a go-ahead goal three minutes later, Kieran Hair and Michael Thomson with the goals for Solway.
