Barons conclude home league campaign with win

TC Cars Solihull Barons : 9
Nottingham Lions : 0
EIHA Moralee Division

The TC cars Solihull Barons took a while to hit their stride against a young and short benched Nottingham Lions but once up to speed and having broken the initially solid Lions defences the result was never in doubt.

It would take until the 17th minute for Solihull to open the scoring when a blend of hustle and tic tac toe passing  between Adam Brittle and the Mulcahy brothers saw the former find the net. Off the restart, the Lions were adjudged to have had a player pulled down when clear through on goal. The resulting penalty shot would not however be converted as Nottingham’s Cameron Pywell hung onto the puck a fraction too long and by then Sam Hewitt’s left leg had blocked off the only option left.

Barons fail to contain league clinching Warriors

Whitley Warriors : 4
EIHA Moralee Division

The TC cars Solihull Barons rounded off a disappointing weekend with a loss to the Whitley Warriors on Sunday in a game which saw the Warriors clinch the Moralee league title.

Andy Whitehouse wins the face-off (S Crampton)

The Barons would get the opening goal on five minutes off of a powerplay chance. A shot by Tom Soar was parried by the pads of Richie Lawson in the Whitley goal but the resulting rebound came to Rich Slater who instinctively fired home from six feet out. Further powerplays came the Barons way in the first twenty but little pressure could be put on the Warriors during these spells and there was no change to the scoreline. More here.

Sam leads short-handed Barons to win over Sting

TC Cars Solihull Barons : 4
Sutton Sting : 1
EIHA Moralee Conference

It was a somewhat light TC Cars Solihull Barons side who stepped onto the ice on Sunday to face the Sutton Sting with top scorers Niklas Ottosson, Adie Brittle, Tom Soar and Daniel Mulcahy all out of the line up and goalie Daniel Brittle taking off the big pads and playing as a forward to help provide cover. In a game notable for the amount of minor penalties, Solihull would emerge victorious and while Matt Maurice  and Dave Rogers got the goals it was netminder Sam Hewitt who ensured the Sting were kept at bay.
