Solihull Barons – Deeside Dragons



EDG Solihull Barons : 8
Deeside Dragons : 4

The EDG Property Solihull Barons emerged victorious in a 2nd v 3rd Moralee clash at Hobs Moat on Saturday evening in a match which was dominated early on by the Barons before the Dragons stages something of a recovery.

Phil Mulcahy gets the opener (S Crampton)

Phil Mulcahy got the scoring off to a start after three and a half-minutes by waiting patiently by the back post to score off of a feed from Daniel Mulcahy after he and Niklas Ottosson had pulled Dragons goalie Oliver Booth to his near post. Three minutes later and the Solihull advantage doubled as Niklas Ottosson fired home from the blue line in the dying seconds of a powerplay. By 12 minutes the Barons had made it three as Matt Maurice won the chase up the ice before sweeping the puck to Filip Byfält square on goal, the Finn making no mistake with his shot.

Brandon Anderton & Michael Clancy work the boards (S Crampton)

Three and a half minutes into the second and the Barons added their fourth, Max Soden slotting home from the left hand circle, exploiting traffic around the Dragons goal. The Barons continued to pile on the goals with Bailey Challans tapping home a rebounded Filip Byfält shot while shorthanded. With the period clock ticking past the 12 minute mark, the Barons would once more find themselves shorthanded for a full 2 minutes of 5 on 3. Having stood firm to this challenge the Barons would rapidly notch up their sixth goal of the night, Matt Maurice finding the net within seconds of returning to the ice following his penalty.

Jacob Smith goes for the shot (S Crampton)

The Dragons would get some solace with their first goal of the night five minutes into the third, James Parson getting the final touch after a spell of pressure in and around the Barons end. A powerplay with 10 minutes to go gave the Dragons their second goal of the night, Alex Parry lofting a shot over the glove of Graham Laverick. The Dragons would continue their resurgence with a further powerplay goal six minutes from the end, Jakub Hajek this time. The Barons would pick up the momentum in the final minutes as Brandon Anderton converted a powerplay goal of his own. With less than a minute on the clock the Dragons countered once more with yet another powerplay goal through Brodie Jesson, though this was quickly countered by an Alex Whyte goal with 30 seconds left.

Billy Crofts & Andy McKinney disagree late on (S Crampton)

The Barons have another busy weekend coming up with the Moralee Cup Semi-finals. On Saturday they are up in Lancashire to take on the Blackburn Hawks in the first leg before returning to Hobs Moat on the Sunday face-off 5.30pm. This fixture is included in the season ticket as is the home leg of the final if we make it through.
