Solihull Barons – Sheffield Scimitars



Zoo Accounting Solihull Barons : 7
Sheffield Scimitars : 0

While it took a period to breakdown the visiting Sheffield Scimitars, by the end of the full hour in Sunday’s Moralee league tie, the Zoo Accounting Solihull Barons comfortably got the better of the Yorkshire side. Despite a strong work ethic and some energetic goal tending Sheffield could not stem the Solihull scoring once that particular tap had been opened.

Despite sitting at the lower reaches of the league table, the Scimitars showed they would be no walkover through the first twenty. Strong play from the visitors defied the Barons as quick breaking and chasing Sheffield forwards threatened the Solihull end while disciplined D coupled to a very strong opening stint from the acrobatic and dependable Tom Hovell in the Scims net ensured there would be no scoring as the sides headed to the dressing rooms for the first period break of the night.

A minute into the second and the Barons finally found a way past Hovell to break the deadlock as Phil Mulcahy fired into the top of the Scimitars net. A minute later and Solihull got their second as Filip Byfält got his name on the scoresheet. By five minutes in Barons were beginning to ease away as Jordan Stokes fired through the Scims zone for Solihull goal number 3 on the powerplay. And so the goals continued with a twenty-seventh minute effort from Jordan Jolly taking the Barons further from the Scims giving the Barons a four goal margin going into the third period.

Five minutes into the third and Solihull added to their tally – Phil Mulcahy on a delayed penalty, sliding the puck home on the back post beyond a supine Hovell. A minute later and Niklas Ottosson pushed the goal tally out to six. By period end the Barons had made it 7-0 with a further goal, this time by Matt Maurice on a breakaway.

A convincing win but the Barons face a potentially tricky away tie next weekend to the Nottingham Lions before returning home for their final game of 2022, at home to the Widnes Wild on Sunday 18th December.
