The TC Cars Solihull Barons came away from a tricky away tie at Blackburn Hawks with a gritty road victory and the two points which went with it.
The Barons opened the scoring just after the game mid-point as Josh Bruce found the net with Adam Brittle Doubling the lead with 10 minutes to go. The Hawks Jozef Istocy pulled one back for Blackburn as the clock ticked down but Solihull hung on for the win.
A low scoring affair, much of the credit for the victory must go to net minder Daniel Brittle who kept the Barons in the game and conceded only once in the final couple of minutes of the tie having faced the puck over 40 times.
The Barons are back on home ice this Sunday when they take on fellow mid-table side the Whitley Warriors on Sunday. The two sides have yet to meet this season but with similar styles of play – fast and high skill but not afraid of the more physical side of things, ties between the two are often very close and a good game is on the cards. Face-off 6:00pm.
