Sunday 15th March 2015
Edinburgh Capitals 0-0-2 2 Braehead Clan 0-0-1 1
Elite League
Admission £16
Programme £3 (36pp. Fairly poor issue: heavy on photographs, light on reading)
Attendance 1,524
Food and drink available (took our own picnic)


Pulsating Forth-Clyde derby that produced a shock result as second-bottom Edinburgh pipped second-top Braehead. Major disappointment for the travelling Clan fans who comprised two-thirds of the crowd. No serious damage done to the visitors' title push, however, because leaders Sheffield lost 6-3 at Cardiff.

Forward Daniel Naslund, with two goals, was the home hero. After rattling a post, he netted twice in six minutes (5:40 and 11:30) during the final period. Scott Pitt (16:38) pulled one back to set up a frantic finale. Capitals somehow held out, despite being three on five in the closing moments and Clan advancing netminder Kyle Jones into the fray. The Braehead fans brought the atmosphere with them. Their opposite numbers really only came to life when Edinburgh took the lead. The action on the ice was uncompromising. It featured twenty-two penalties. Netminder Tomas Hiadlovsky shone for Capitals with 33 saves. The shot count was 21-34.

Didn't know what to expect from Murrayfield Ice Rink, which is in the shadow of the eponymous rugby union stadium. Turned out to be a wonderful Art Deco structure, built in 1939. The archaic wooden and metal tip-up seats, not noticeably comfortable, must be the originals! Steeply-raked banks of seats on each side. Nothing (for spectators) at the ends. The rink, an official told me, was commandeered for war work upon completion. Torpedoes were made here and an ammunition store tacked on to the rear. It reopened as an ice rink in 1952. Two families own the venue and ran the hockey team (as Murrayfield Racers, mostly) until about 15 years ago. It was then offloaded then sold again. The Edinburgh Capitals franchise has been in place for circa 12 years, I learned. The corridors leading off the entrance are filled with framed hockey memorabilia - shirts, programmes, posters and photographs. Some really interesting stuff to look at.

We were in Edinburgh for a long weekend. Travelled by train (courtesy of my wife's East Coast loyalty points), so used public transport to reach the rink. Went out from Princes Street on the plush tram, which rides smoothly and accelerates sharply. The locals seem to think it was a waste of money. Murrayfield Stadium station is a 10-minute stroll from the rink. Returned to Princes Street using Lothian Buses' No 26 service (Clerwood-Seton Sands/Tranent). The bus stop, on the main road beyond a bridge over the Water of Leith, is two minutes from the rink.

English Premier League

Guildford Flames 1 Telford Tigers 2 - abandoned after just over 30 mins Mad

admission £10-50 + 53p booking charge, programme free to download, attendance est 1700
2nd v 1st
It was shaping up to be quite a good game; even though Tigers were already champions (and cup winners) and the playoffs are next weekend, both teams gave a good performance. Telford took an early lead but Flames had more possession and more good chances in the first period, but they couldn't convert one until 16 mins. Tigers regained the lead soon afterwards with a superb break and finish. The second period was quite even, with chances for both sides. Halfway through the period a foot-long crack was discovered near the Flames goal. They tried water, ice, carbon dioxide, even a complete re-flood by the Zamboni. But 45 mins later came the news that they couldn't carry on. The announcer said that ticket holders will be contacted. With the game meaning nothing for the league table and the playoffs next weekend (wonder if the ice will be restored in time for then?) I doubt whether it will be replayed.
Reflecting on the crap state of all of the rinks I've been to in the last couple of years, someone is really taking the p***.
Usual poor sightlines at the Spectrum, usual plethora of people coming in late/walking in front of your seat, but a much improved atmosphere over my last visit. Even a Mexican Wave while the ice was(n't) being fixed.

EDIT: Match has been awarded as 2-1 to Telford.

English Premier League

Telford Tigers 4 Guildford Flames 3 (OT)
£5 on door, we pre booked at £12.50!

Despite living in Aldershot I grew up near Telford and have watched Tigers since 1985. After watching far too many hammerings at Guildford I've quite enjoyed this seasons matches between the two.

Frankly this was poor. Telford were abysmal 1st period and Guilford were two up inside four minutes. Telford woke up a bit in the second to make it 1-3, James Hadfield ensuring it was only one with some good netminding. Guildford hit penalty problems. 13 often not young skaters against Telfords bench ain't great. Throw in 1 x match and 2 x 10 min personal misconducts and you have a problem. Telford pulled it back to 3-3 and were denied a win by more good netminding.

In the 64th minute David Longstaff was called for tripping and less than a minute later it was all over.

Telford will need to play better if they are to do a treble. If Guildford get a full line up out I wouldn't put it past them having one last hurrah in the play offs.

I suspect both teams will change a lot this summer. Time has caught up with Guildford and they need a rebuild. Telford don't but I'm not sure all the imports will be invited back and I suspect a lot of the 4th line will want out to secure more ice time. Despite Telford misfiring they hardly iced in this game. I will be sad to see them go as many of them were amateurs in the Trust days, there would be no club today without them.

Whilst the crowd was 4 or 5 times what the Trust owned team got at the end there were enough spare seats, even at a fiver admission, to suggest Wayne Scholes doesn't need to worry about extending the seating just yet. Credit to the 15 or so Flames fans who travelled up to a game that had nothing hanging on it at all.

English National League Division 1 South

Solent Devils 5 Milton Keynes Thunder 4

Admission £9-00 inc programme attendance est 120
Last league game of the season, the only thing riding on it was to see if Thunder finished 5th or 6th, and which opponent they would get in the playoffs. Both teams tried to play constructive hockey, and a close contest ensued. Devils took an early lead through Magee but the rest of the period was very even. The first penalty was after 19 mins. Devils missed a breakaway before Murray converted another for 2-0. But within five minutes Thunder had pulled it back to 2-2. The equaliser saw the officials blow the whistle before the puck was put into the net, but the goal still stood. Magee grabbed his second to send Devils into the break still with a single goal lead. Twice in the final period they went further ahead only for Thunder to pull one back. The second of these made it 5-4 with 2:30 left in the game, but the home held on for a good win.
Devils finish 7th, the second season in a row they have gone up one place in the league. They face newly crowned Cup Winners Invicta Dynamos in the playoffs next week.

Well the next Ice Hockey season will be busy again for me as I

1) Watch the Nottingham GMB Panthers - I have again moved my season ticket this time to behind the away players bench. This will be my second season as a season ticket holder and 3rd season as a Panthers fan and with the many changes being made I will surely be enjoying it.

2) Match Night Music For the Nottingham Lions IHC - After starting during the previous season and I have seen some good games in the Laidler Conference. This season I am hoping to have a good year with Lions and many successes with them in terms of the playing staff and also coaches.

3) Match Night MC for the Nottingham Vipers - 1 Full season with the ladies Hockey team is enough to keep me wanting to help them again for next season. After Closely missing out on the title last season I am hoping they can this year push that little bit further and win the title.

4) Match Night MC for the Nottingham University Mavericks - Now over the last 2 seasons I have helped all 3 of the University Teams by doing the announcements and match night music despite there games facing off at 10:30 at night. This season the C Team only played a couple of challenge games but these were very much enjoyed as they won most of the games they played including the 18-0 win against the Uni of East Anglia.

Then The B Team played a number of games but didnt this year finish bottom after picking up 4 points by winning 2 of there 10 games this season. Finally though there was the A Team who went unbeaten throughout the league season winning all 10 games and clinching the title at the National Ice Centre, What a season it was without them coming near a loss.

So a busy season last year and an even busier 2015/16 Season.

Saturday 5th September

Nottingham Panthers V Dundee Stars

The Panthers came out on top in the first league game of the Season at the NIC and came up against a Dundee side that had beat the Belfast Giants the 3-0 the night before. This game saw Paul Swindlehurst play against his former team and a number of players such as Andy Bohmbach, Logan MacMillan, Geoff Waugh and a number of others start their first Panthers game.

The first period started well with both teams feeling each other out and stringing some good passes together and testing both netties but the big point came when Robert Farmer started where he left off and dropped the gloves with Justin Faryna of the Stars with both receiving 5 minute penalties for fighting. Just over a minute after this though and the Panthers had the lead after Referee Liam Sewell had called a tripping penalty on Riley Wetmore and a Juraj Kolnik pass was sent towards goal by David Clarke and tipped in by Debutant Logan MacMillan.

Period 2 though was different as with 6:39 on the clock the Stars made it 1-1 when John Dolan scored through Panthers Miika Wiikman's five hole, this was assisted by Doug Clarkson and Jason Gray. It was soon to be 2-1 to the stars because as David Clarke sat a 2 Minute cross checking penalty Justin Faryna scored past Wiikman again with assists by Brett Switzer and Riley Wetmore.

The second period wasnt over though as again Justin Faryna got involved in a fight but this time it was with Stevie Lee who got an excellent right hook away but the scrap ended with no one going down. Panthers though would not lay down and go down without a fight and equilled the game with just 31 seconds left of the period when the returning Matthew Myers scored through Vlastimil Lakosil's five hole with assists from Evan Mosey and David Clarke.

The third period was a quiet time of the game but it went to penalty shots with Stars Leinweber losing control of the puck and Lou Dickenson having his shot saved before Andy Bohmbach and Stephen Schultz scored for the panthers.

Attendence 5,005

Re: [Jswinscoe] Where are you going - where did you go? ICE HOCKEY [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

English National League Division 1 South

Solent Devils 3 Cardiff Devils 3

Admission £9-00 inc programme attendance est 100

Great game, fast-paced throughout, and full of big (mostly legal) hits. Cardiff were bottom last season but on this showing they won't be this year. Early goals for both teams, then a pretty even first period, both teams had chances, both teams hit the post. Solent took the lead on 25 mins with a class finish from a rebound by new Hungarian import Hegyi, then went further ahead on 31 mins. They dominated the rest of the period but it stayed at 3-1. Cardiff looked better in the final period, with Mr. Evans helping his compatriots wth numerous harsh penalties against the home team. Latchford pulled a goal back on 44 mins then it was Cardiff pressure with good breaks by Solent, hitting the post near the end. Cardiff pulled their netminder for one last push. Finally, with 14.5 seconds left, Bradshaw equalised, to great jubilation from the visitors.
Not many changes at Gosport Ice Rink this year - new lights, the fixing of one would have delayed the start but for the officials deciding to forgo the icing. It was amusing watching the repairers dismantling the scaffolding they used, slowly, bit by bit, as the players and officials hovered impatiently. Unfortunately the fixture list is very unfriendly to Gosport this season, so my visits might be more limited.

English Premier League

HULL PIRATES. 1
Manchester Phoenix. 4

Up North for Surrey Cricket at Old Trafford so a visit to firstly Hall Road Rangers at their new ex Rugby League Stadium, then onwards to the Kingston Street Arena, just off the City Centre for the main event.

Face off was delayed from 17.30 to allow latecomers in, not happy nor with the decision to NOT issue a Programme with no plans too ! NO knowledge of how many Players retained from the doomed Stingway, but certainly no great shakes. Àfter two Periods the score was locked at 1-1, however 3 unanswered Goals in the final Period deservedly secured the points for Phoenix.

The following Day Sunday 13/09, down to Manchester and firstly a rather one sided Rugby League contest at Sedgely Park RU for Swinton Lions defeating South Wales Chargers 94-6, the £2.50 Prog had sold out but a local was happy to pass on, once he'd read it.

Onwards to the Altrincham Ice Arena next to the Railway/Metro Station for

Elite League

MANCHESTER STORM 2
Dundee Stars. 7

Having forced Phoennix to leave their Ice and to play out of Deeside fear will prove a difficult time for Storm both in paying attendance, approx 25o/o of capacity plus Team strength. Stars probably suffering from their Coach Trip found themselves 1-2 down at end of first, however two unanswered Goals in the 2nd plus a further three in the Final secured a deserved Win. Again no Programme issued although they MAY later in Season

English Premier League

Basingstoke Bison 3 Hull Pirates 2

admission £13-75 inc internet booking fee, programme £2-50, back to A5 format, more content
), attendance est 1200

A surprising, and desrrved, first point for the new boys, who were formed after the demise of the Elite League's Hull Stingrays. Bison, top, fresh from a stunning 4-1 win at champions Telford last Sun, rarely got out of first gear for most of this game but got two points. Not much happened in the first period. Bison started the second better and took the lead. But they had a few penalties, and Hull equalised with their second power-play. Early in the third Hull took the lead and we wondered iif an upset was on the cards. Bison put the pressure on at last and equalised with nine mins left. But Hull held firm with netminder Baston outstanding, not for the first time this season. It's 3 v 3 in overtime nowadays and Bison dominated it, but Hull had the best two chances. On to penalties and it was 2-2 after six. The next five were all missed, leaving Bison's Watt to beat Baston for the decisive penalty.
No changes at Basingstoke this season, crowd a bit quiet at times but gave Hull, and Baston in paricular, a warm welcome, unlike the welcome they gave the officials.

NEW YORK RANGERS 6-2 NEW JERSEY DEVILS
(NHL Pre-Season Game)

@ Madison Square Garden
Admission: $50

A friend of mine sorted out tickets for us for this game, as he had a season ticket holding friend who could not go. I wasn't willing to pay more than $50 each for two tickets and this was accepted, despite the face value being $62.

I do admit to not being an ice hockey fan, having only attended two games previously at Swindon and Coventry, but a chance to watch a sporting event was too good an opportunity to pass up.

The goal times for the game are as follows:

1st
1:21 NYR Brian Gibbons (1-0)
4:24 NYR Jayson Megna (2-0)
7:30 NJD Jordin Tootoo (PPG 2-1)

2nd
16:47 NJD Mike Sislo (PPG 2-2)
18:13 NYR Chris Kreider (3-2)
18:48 NYR Viktor Stalberg (4-2)

3rd
14:43 NYR Oscar Lindberg (5-2)
17:51 NJD Adam Larsson (PPG 5-3)
19:28 NYR Jayson Megna (PPG 6-3)

English Premier League

Guildford Flames 5 Manchester Phoenix 4 (O/T and pens)

admission comp (normally £11-50), programme downloadable via internet, attendance est 1523
Since I last saw Phoenix they have been ousted out of the top 4 by Telford. Indeed they nearly didn't exist this summer, and are currently playing at Deeside, with all the fuss over Manchester Storm. Today, however, they harked back to old days with an excellent performance against the Flames and a deserved point. Flames, strangely, had played yesterday, losing 3-5 at Bison after being 3-1 up. They seemed still to be suffering in a first period where they were quite subdued and vulnerable to the visitor's breaks. Archer scored after 10 mins and there no penalties for either side until 0.6 secs from the end of the period. Phoenix went two up after 21 mins and it looked bad for Flames. But they quickly pulled a goal back from the blue line and two goals in three mins around the half hour mark put them in the driving seat, although netminder Rockman made some important saves to keep them there. It was 4-2 soon after the restart and it looked over. But the visitors kept the pressure up and forced a couple of errors from the Flames to bring the scores level at the end of the third. Overtime (3 on 3) was exciting, with Flames having three golden chances, denied by Fone, and Phoenix going close twice too. On to penalties, Flames took an early lead, Phoenix equalised later, and it was left to Duggan to score the winner against his old club in impressive style.
No changes at the Spectrum this season, the atmosphere was good in patches, not surprisingly with a close game.

English National League Division 1 South

Solent Devils 2 Invicta Dynamos 2

Admission £9-00 inc programme attendance est 180
A fourth draw from nine games for Solent this season, they are becoming a hard team to beat. This game was a fair old battle for 60 mins, neither team giving any quarter at any time. A fair result, probably acceptable to both teams. Invicta are in a season of transition but are still a decent team with two useful imports, some experienced players, and some talented youngsters. I would say that both teams are probably contesting places 4-7 this season, along with Oxford (who beat Chelmsford yesterday) and London.
After a tight first 15 mins the home team took the lead as Lock shot in through a crowd of players. Mos turned it round in the second with two goals in four mins, the second was the result of a really good move. It started to get a bit tasty toward the end of the second, not helped by some dodgy calls by Evans (again). Facey got a surprise equaliser after 46 mins, the rest of the game was quite exciting as both teams went for it, creating chances. Both netminders were excellent. Gosset looked up for a fight all match and managed to get one, taking Lee down.
As with the first game I saw here this season, we had a delayed start because scaffolding had to be erected to fix the overhead lights Mad. As a result we missed the national anthem and team introductions again, but at least we saw the ice machine before the start of the game this time. Can't complain, though; both Bracknell games were called off this weekend due to an ice plant malfunction, and Hull will have the same problem with their game next weekend.

English National League Division 1 South

Solent Devils 0 Wightlink Raiders 3

Admission £9-00 inc programme attendance est 250
Devils eventually well beaten by third place Raiders. The first period was typical local derby fare: 100 mph, exciting, violent. No goals, several good efforts by both sides (Raiders hit the post on 17 mins). Gregory beat Circensis in a fight, there was a melee on 10 mins with numerous penalties and a misconduct for Painter.
Second period was quieter, Cesky gave the visitors the lead after 24 mins with a fast cross shot that netminder Cole may have thought was going wide. Raiders looked more dangerous and nearly had another goal on 37 mins, Devils being lucky that the puck was adjudged not to have gone in.
In the third period two goals by Rose and Cesky within a minute at the start sealed the result. After that it was still fast hockey but now a question of Devils keeping the score down, which they did. M.Murray had a one on one but failed to convert, so a deserved shutout for Colclough. Raiders looked strong, especially defensively, and a bit more streetwise (undetected elbows). Good officials.
No problems with lights today so a minute's silence and national anthem for Rememberance Day. Good support for the visitors.

English Premier League

Guildford Flames 4 Peterborough Phantoms 7

admission comp (normally £11-50), programme downloadable via internet, attendance 1433
5th v 1st
Flames had two terrible losses last weekend, so a lower crowd than usual feared the worst against the leaders. Sure enough, Phantoms dominated the first period with some excellent hockey all round the ice and took a two goal lead, the second after a Guildford mistake. But Flames scored with 40 seconds to go in the period to give themselves some hope. Phantoms started the second period in control again and scored a third, a pass from one end to another, straight down the middle, well finished. Flames then started to fight back, playing more physical hockey than usual, and crowding visiting netminder Auzins whenever possible to see if he reacted. He did. Piatek missed a one-on-one which would have made it 2-3 before the visitors made it 1-4. The improved Flames pulled another goal back and then we had a bundle at the visiting net; Auzins got 2 mins for slashing, but Duggan got 10 mins for incitement. A fifth for the visitors on 45 mins made the game safe, and they took their foot off the pedal a bit. Flames pulled back twice to be only two behind but Phantoms again pulled away with ease. Their last goal was an empty-netter. We had another bundle around the Phantoms net right at the end too.
Flames will be encouraged by a bit of a comeback but are making quite a few unforced errors. The fans weren't too happy. Phantoms look a good side, top three, possibly champions on this showing. They are a totally different proposition from when I saw them lose 0-6 at Basingstoke a couple of years ago.

Sunday 6th December

PETERBOROUGH PHANTOMS 0-1 SWINDON WILDCATS
(English Premier League)

Adm: £14
Prog: £2

Despite only one goal this was a really entertaining, and at times absorbing contest. Peterborough dominated the shot count 47-14 yet could not find a way past the Wildcats netminder Stevie Lyle. There were ten penalties in the game, with eight of them in the 1st period alone. This was also when the only goal was scored - Aaron Nell on seven minutes. The second and third periods saw a lot of fast flowing uninterrupted play.

This was only the 4th game that I have seen, and also only the 4th ice hockey venue that I have been to - the others being Swindon, Coventry and the NY Rangers, and was the coldest by along way. Before the game started I went back to the car and got my coat and hat!!! Also enjoyed it more with the fact that we (my dad and I) were very close to the action and could follow the puck more easily. This was something I struggled with at Madison Square Garden back in September as my wife and I were quite high up.

Sunday 27th December 2015
Basingstoke Bison (1-0-2) 3 Bracknell Bees (0-1-1) 2
English Premier League
Admission £13.50
Programme £2.50 (32 pages, double issue with Peterborough Phantoms match on 2nd January)
Attendance 1,900 (estimate)
Hot chocolate £1.60


Two goals inside two minutes at the start of the third period secured a derby win over lowly opposition for title-chasing Basingstoke. Rene Jarolin (41:14) and Ciaran Long (43:15), the latter whilst the hosts were shorthanded, netted to see off Bees. Bracknell trailed to a Long (8:29) strike, but had the better of the second period, and drew level on the power play through Milan Kostourek (33:13). Alex Barker (56:37) made it 3-2 to force a frantic finish, but Bees were unable to score again, despite a couple of very near-misses. Home netminder Jon Baston made a number of impressive saves.

Not overly impressed with the Planet Ice Silverdome, a tired, cramped venue, despite opening as recently as 1988. Dropped a clanger by not booking ahead. With the rink virtually full to its 2,000 capacity, we had to go for seats at the far end. Not a great vantage point. To make matters worse, condensation on the plexiglass didn't clear until midway through the first period. We had to stand on our seats to see anything. How shite is that? Did this dump really host Elite League action?

Yes it did host Elite League games in the 00s but then so did Lea Valley which makes Basingstoke look like the O2 Arena and had a capacity of about 50!

Also at Basingstoke Bison v Bracknell Bees. £13-75 if you book in advance.

2nd v 9th/10 - Bees are in financial trouble, some of their best players have left, and had previously lost their last ten games, but they battled well and ran Bison fairly close in this one.

Bison have a three-game 'weekend' (away to Guildford tomorrow) so were presumably trying to save a bit for that match. At 1-0 up after the first they were relatively comfortable, but a few penalties in the second cost them dear as Bees equalised. Two goals at the start of the third clinched the game for Bison, the second of these came on a Bees powerplay; they were passing the puck around in front of goal, had a couple of shots blocked, then Bison suddenly broke away and Long made it 3-1. The last minute was quite frantic as Bees, minus netminder, went for it and the Bison goal came off its moorings twice. I thought both netminders were excellent.

Other things of note:
1) There is a plan for total rebuild of the ice rink (and the surrounding leisure area) so it's possible that Planet Ice won't invest much into the existing (as FL says, decaying) facilities.

2) the usual D.J. wasn't there today, both the replacement and the sound system were a bit erratic - no national anthem. The crowd were the quietest I've heard, so they missed their D.J. Apparently he's doing his stuff now at the Majewski on Saturday afternoons too.

3) As planned, after the first goal, teddy bears were thrown onto the ice and collected for charity. Many didn't reach the ice, prompting the remark that the fans are a bunch of useless tossers. Not my opinion, I hasten to add.

4) As it got a bit heated in the third, Bracknell's Foord looked to be spoiling for a fight. One of the officials tried to restrain him and knocked him over, Cue round of applause.

5) Bison were wearing a special Christmas jersey, luckily for the only time, picture attached (since it doesn't seem to let me copy and paste it):

National Ice Hockey League South Division One

Solent Devils 5 v Oxford City Stars 5

@ Gosport Ice Arena

Saturday, 09 January 2016

Face Off : 1700

Admission : £9

Programme : Free

Last season I watched these two teams do battle and it ended 10-2 in favour of the Gosport-based hosts...but what a different story it turned out to be this time around!

Having struck the post and scorned a two-on-one, Devils suddenly found themselves in a very big hole at 0-4 down inside the opening 13 minutes before they reduced the arrears to 1-4 at the first break.

There then followed a blank middle session and there seemed no way back for a home outfit that has struggled to find the net this term against an away side who have grown in stature this campaign.

But just when even their most ardent followers had decided that a hot chocolate from the cafe was a better option than enduring another disappointing night on the ice Devils finally found their A game and came roaring back with four unanswered goals to take a sensational 5-4 lead.

A very late penalty call however gave Stars a powerplay situation and they made full use of the opportunity to salvage a point with their fifth with just 57 seconds on the clock.

Great entertainment!

Sunday 10th January 2016
NIHL Division One North (level 3)
Blackburn Hawks 4 Whitley Warriors 3
Att: 1,100 (official, looked more like 1300-1400 in reality)
Admission: £7
Prog: £2.50, 36pp, full colour, glossy, plenty to read

What will probably turn out to be the title decider in this division this season didn't disappoint as Blackburn came back from a 3-1 1st period deficit to grab the winning goal with less than 4 mins to go. Apart from one scrap in the first period only 6 minor pens were called all night as Ref Steve Brown let the two teams play and play they did in a terrific advertisment for this level. The atmosphere was pretty good too to say the least, thanks in part to a very noisy contingent from Whitley Bay who never stopped getting behind their team and took defeat well.

Hawks have now opened up a 9 point lead over Whitley (who do have 1 game in hand), but crucially the two teams have played all 4 games against each other now and Blackburn have the edge on head to head (2W/1L/1D). Whitley need to win all remaining games and Hawks lose 4 of their last 12 which looks unlikely as they've only dropped 6 league points (4 draws, 1 loss) since the start of LAST season.

Re: [Seagull] Where are you going - where did you go? ICE HOCKEY [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

English National League Division 1 South

Solent Devils 2 London Raiders 2

Admission £9-00 inc programme attendance est 100
8th v 7th/10
An entertaining, evenly-matched game, Devils' third draw in a row and seventh (in 19 games this season). They are solid at the back, break well, but are lacking a goalscorer. Last season's attacking star Magee has just re-signed for then, which should help. London had 11 skaters plus 2 netminders tonight but still looked useful.
The first period saw plenty of intent, several goalmouth scrambles, but no goals. Devils scored early in the second as Facey found a gap at Gray's near post, but Gray redeemed himself on a one-on-one with Hegyi. After Raiders pressure, a long shot from ace marksman Nahlik sped past otherwise good netminder C.Cole. Devils had a five on three but nothing came of it, but following continued pressure they regained the lead just before the end of the period.
A tense and exciting final period saw a couple of penalties against the home team - on the first one, M.Murray had a great break and finished superbly. Unfortunately Gray had (allegedly) knocked the net slightly off its moorings just before the puck entered the net - goal disallowed! On the second, tremendous Raiders pressure and Nahlik found a gap through a crowd of players to equalise with 5.30 remaining, but, try and they might, no more goals and a fair result. Shots 61-60!
Wightlink's roof is still not fixed so rumour has it they are down to play Invicta next Sun (24th) here at Solent at 1900. I'll be there.
