Solihull Barons – Widnes Wild



EDG Property Solihull Barons : 6 (after overtime)
Widnes Wild : 5

The EDG Property Solihull Barons continued their winning ways on home ice on Sunday evening after a highly entertaining Moralee tie against the Widnes Wild in which the momentum see-sawed all night before the sides were split by a Barons overtime winner.

Another goal for Richard Crowe ( S Crampton )

It took 10 minutes of end to end play for a goal to be registered as Bailey Challans in the bottom left corner found Filip Byfält directly in front of goal for the Barons opener. The Barons perhaps held the balance of play for most of the remainder of the first period, their best chances coming from open play with the Wild’s scoring opportunities centred around short range scrambles in the Solihull goal crease. With 30 seconds of the first 20 remaining on the clock, Dan Mulcahy picked up a poorly chosen Wild clearance before slotting it through Wild goale Luca Tessadri’s legs for the Barons second of the night.

Lots of pressure on the Barons net ( S Crampton )

Early in the second the Wild pulled a goal back as a tight angled shot from Will Harper slipped through Graham Laverick’s grasp and into the Barons net. Solihull eased out their lead once more within 5 minutes, as Dan Mulcahy converted on a delayed penalty. The two goal cushion was short lived as the home side were once more pegged back via a Mattie Barlow effort. With five minutes to go however a booming Richard Crowe slapshot from the left hand circle on the powerplay once more eased out the Barons 2 goal margin. This margin would see-saw once more within minutes as Rhys Edwards pounced on an insecure Laverick save for a tap-in and Widnes third. Yet again the see-saw pivoted via Phil Mulcahy and Niklas Ottosson in a play which saw the Swede ferry the puck up the ice before making the pass to Mulcahy to score.

Matt Maurice and Damarni James tussle ( S Crampton )

Seven and a half minutes into the third and the Wild cut the margin once more, Matty Barlow breaking up the ice to slot the puck between Laverick’s legs for their fourth and within minutes Rhys Edwards for the Wild added to their tally to draw the sides level. The remainder of the period would be increasingly nail-biting as the sides traded penalties and the clock ticked down but there would be no further scoring and overtime was called.

Phil Mulcahy ( S Crampton )

Overtime ran to two minutes with each side having opportunities before Brandon Anderton found the space for Solihull’s sixth and winning goal off of a Jordan Stokes
