English Premier League

Basingsroke Bison 1 Milton Keynes Lightning 3

admission £12-00, programme £2-00, attendance c1300

2nd v 4th
Enjoyable game. Both teams showed great quality in an attacking first period. It was a surprise that there were no goals until a shot from distance by the excellent Jamieson flew past Lyle after nearly 17 mins. Similar second period, except that Bison increased the pressure and a great solo by Rand levelled the scores. Netminder Wall made a series of good saves. The third period was equally good, a couple of delays saw Wall injured for several minutes and then Rand crunched a Lightning player into the boards to receive a 5-minute penalty plus a match ban. MK scored during the penalty and during another one shortly afterwards to clinch victory. They looked a very good team indeed, although a bit cynical. Lots of chats with the officials.
A good atmosphere tonight (Kids for a Quid may have helped) - a couple of things I noticed on this visit was the fortitute of the mascot (Bud) who has to skate round for half an hour before the start wearing an oversized Bison head, and the most handsome ice machine I've seen on the circuit so far.

English National League Division 1 South

Solent and Gosport Devils 1 Invicta Dynamos 4

admission £8-00, programme none , attendance est 80 - scoreboard still brokenCrazy

Devils have been losing heavily recently but played quite well in this game. Dynamos needed to win to climb to fourth and a play-off place. The first period was fast-paced and Devils battled well to hold the Mos to 1-1. The second period was the key - early on the visitors' Leone suddenly went beserk and attacked one of the Devils players (not sure why - it wasn't obvious) and got a match penalty. But then the Mos scored immediately what appeared to be directly from the face-off. Another penalty made it 5 v 3 but Devils' weak attack meant that they couldn't take advantage. On came Devils' enforcer Rich, thirty seconds later he picked up a 10-minute misconduct penalty for what seemed to be having a chat with one of the opposition. Two quick goals from the visitors after this sealed the win. The final period was very much like the first but no goals this time. Netminder Cole was the Devils' hero again, conceding only 4 goals from 84 shots. Only half the usual crowd today but the far side produced a good atmosphere when it got interesting.

English Premier League
Basingstoke Bison 0 Sheffield Steelthugs 3
Admission £5 (cheap tickets through a group booking from work)
Programme £2

Sheffield Steelthugs, with long time ginger goon/dickhead Andre Payette as player coach, are the Ice Hockey equivalent of Woodstock Sports from the Kent League. Agressive gobby thugs who are more interested in being pricks than playing the game

They fully deserved their win against a piss poor home team, but quite what the bring to the league I'm not sure (others than lots of penalty minutes). Lots of premeditated goonery and thuggery which is par for the course from Andre Payette who thinks he's the lovable pantomine clown when he's actually a total prick.

Back to the goon free NIHL next week Smile

Friday 8th March
Icehockey, play-off quarter final, game 4
Odense v Aalborg 3-2 (2-0, 0-1, 1-1). Admission DKK110 (£12, £1 saved buying online), programme DKK10 (didn’t bother), att. 2137.

Play-off icehockey at its best. 60 minutes of tense, dogged graft with moments of brilliance and an electric atmosphere (disappointingly low crowd though) saw Odense go 3-1 ahead in games in this very tight best of 7 series (2-1, 2-3, 1-0, 3-2). Odense, buoyed by their 5th(!) period win in Aalborg, on Tuesday completely overpowered their opponents in a classy 1st period. But Aalborg worked their way back in the match in the 2nd period to set-up an enthralling final period in which they saw a lot of the puck but created few clear-cut chances as the Odense players successfully kept them at the boards. As tension grew, Odense managed several instances of settling in the Aalborg zone and when taking a 3-1 lead with 3.30 remaining, pouncing on unusually shoddy Aalborg defending, it should have been game over. A stupid sin-bin soon after for playing the puck off the rink gave Aalborg the chance to reduce the arrears and for the final two minutes (which felt as two hours) Aalborg pulled their goaltender to play 6 on 5 but found no way through to goal.

After a wobbly season finishing 5th of 9 teams, it seems Odense have hit form at the right time and they’ve possibly made the best signing of all teams in the January transfer window by acquiring goaltender Holmström who had become surplus at Leksands IF (top of 2nd tier in Sweden).

Decisions, decisions now for Sunday. A new football ground or an Odense football and icehockey double?

English National League Division 1 South

Solent and Gosport Devils 5 Streatham Redskins 10

admission £8-00, inc programme Smile, attendance est 150 - scoreboard still brokenCrazy DJ/announcer not as good tonight

This result all bit confirms Devils in bottom place in the league and relegation back to Div 2 South. It also confirms the Skins' place in the top eight. Both teams went for it from the start, the visitors scoring after 34 secs due to an error from netminder Cole Shocked, and then another soon afterwards. Devils' Wyatt scored two in a minute midway through the period to even it up, only for Streatham to get two quick goals of their own to make it 2-4. Devils were poor in the second period, and rarely had five men on the ice - 3-7 at the end. The third period saw the Skins continue their superiority but they let a couple of soft ones in too. Frustrations from the second period boiled over into the third as Tanner and McIlroy had a punch-up, leading to a few more minor skirmishes by the end. Temple also got a misconduct penalty for the Skins.
Good atmosphere and entertaining game, like the earlier one this season, which provided one of Devils' two wins.
Goonery (and idiiocy) award went to Tanner - in the sin bin, helmet off, he still attempted to head-butt McIlroy (helmet on) when he came over for a 'chat'. Problem is, Tanner was already recovering from a fractured skull and detached retina. So in the third period we had the bizarre situation where the usually bloodthirsty Devils fans were shouting at the ref to stop McIlroy trying to take Tanner's helmet off to engage in a proper fight. Eventually the helmet came off.

English National League South Division Two
Bristol Pitbulls 8 Lee Valley Lions 4
@ Basingstoke
Admission £6
Programme None
Attendance 65

Homeless Bristol Pitbulls borrowed Basingstoke's rink for the night to take on winless LVL. Bristol lead 4-0 after the 1st period and a blowout looked on the cards against a side who've lost every game this season & arrived with only 12 skaters. Thankfully the final two periods were a lot closer and LVL got even got within two goals at one point, which prompted the visiting coach to call a timeout and make several gestures imploring the 15 or so travelling fans to sing and cheer for their team Smile

LVL never gave up or resort to goonery to help their cause. Bristol's player coach Richard Hargreaves must watch a lot of Liverp**l & Manchester United on TV, as he spent the majority of the game trying to referee the game himself like Rio Ferdinand & Steven Gerrard routinely do, and even told the ref who should get the assists on each goal they scored.

No programme tonight but you could buy Pitbull branded Jester Hats for a tenner Smile

Elite League
Nottingham Panthers 2 Sheffield Steelers 0
@National Ice Centre
Goals from David Clarke & Guy Lepine

Programme £3
Enamel Badge £1.50

A great game between two local rivals at the National Ice Center in a game that saw Nottingham net minder Craig Kowalski save 29 shots earning him man of the match in the process. The game itself though didn't pass without its controversy the first point of when the Sheffield steelers thought they had scored from close range but the Referee said no because the net had come off its moorings as the puck crossed the line. The second point was when the Panthers got a penalty shot when Robert Lachowich was bought down when through on goal but again the net was pushed off its moorings but before this Lachowich had lost control of the puck.

Goal of the game was the second when Sheffield pulled their net minder in place of the extra skater and when Lepine won the puck in his own half he hit it towards the goal with no one there to stop it, This came with just 30 seconds of the game left.


England Ice Hockey League North Division 2
Nottingham Lions 15 Blackburn Eagles 0
@National Ice Centre
Admission Free (Won the tickets through a twitter competition)
Programme Non Available

The Lions won the league title with 3 games left with a massive 15-0 win against bottom of the League. The game started at a later time of 7:30 and by the end of the first Period the Lions were on there way with a healthy 7-0 lead, despite the aggressive complaints from the Blackburn head coach. In what was a tough and physical game with lots of penalties being called. The second period seemed to be calmer with only 1 goal being scored during the period. During the 3rd period a further 7 Goals were score with 2 players even getting 10 minute misconduct penalty. But all in all a excellent game to watch as Nottingham Lions will be playing in the Division 1 next year after a very successful season this year.

It was also very refreshing to see a female official on the game. Makes a change to see that ladies can work on the mens game and nothing will hold them back from progressing.

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

Saturday 16th March 2013

Coventry Blaze 3-8 Sheffield Steelers
Elite League

Admission: £16 + £1.60 booking fee
Programme: £3 - a monthly magazine. Vastly overpriced and not worth the money.
Puck: £3.50 - Elite League prices as only £2 @ Swindon.

With both teams already qualifed for the play-offs it was a case of playing for pride. Sheffield showed more of it and were four up at the end of the first period, this despite having four players sin binned. A quieter second period with the only goal coming for the visitors. The third was the most entertaining with, a last Coventry showing some fighting spirit. The two teams equally shared six goals and the home side's fruatrations boiling over towards the end. Derek Campbell lost it and was binned for two offences for roughing-minor on 16:37, which was for throwing a couple of punches. With about ninety seconds of time remaining Benn Olson also received binned for two offences of roughing-minor.

Not a bad evening's entertainment with the seats giving an excellent view of the ice. How the venue compares with other Elite League rinks I do not know, as the only other rink I have been to is Swindon's Link Centre.

a review of the venue, fuller notes and some photos are online @ http://www.rambler77.net/...xtinguish-blaze.html

English National League Division 1 South

Solent and Gosport Devils 0 Chelmsford Chieftains 6

admission £8-00, inc programme, attendance est 120 - scoreboard still broken

Bottom v Top - Chelmsford Champions after this win
Since this started at 1700, no doubles possible with football. No decision necessary, though, since there was no football available anyway.
Like the last time these two met, Devils played really well in the first period even though Chieftains had most of the play - only 0-1 at the end. Devils rarely play well in the second period but battled well again here, only a couple of goals for Chieftains after soft penalties left the Devils a man short at crucial times. The final period was similar until 10 mins from the end when Morgan got a match penalty for boarding. After that three more goals for the visitors, a gloves-off between Perella and C.Bartlett, and more assorted goonery. At the end Devils had played well - netminder outstanding again - but Chelmsford took the plaudits after a professional performance both today and throughout the season.

Elite Ice Hockey League Play-off Quarter-Final 2nd leg

Nottingham Panthers 3 Fife Flyers 0

Admission £16

Programme £3 double up for Tuesday's final against the Sheffield Steelers.

This game could have made or broke Panthers season after losing 4-2 away in Fife on the Saturday night. The game however went very well for the Panthers with goals coming from David Ling who rifled home a tight angle and then Eric Werner scored to level the game on aggregate on the powerplay.

Then came a flash point when the whistle was blew by Referee Smith and then the lights went on to say the puck had crossed the line. He said no goal but the went to speak to the goal judge before awarding the goal and then went back for another chat and made a final decision not to allow the goal.

In the 3rd Period Panthers scored the 3rd when Eric Beauregard played the puck across the goal to Robert Lachowicz who slotted home. Then though another Fife goal was disallowed for a man in the crease and the Panthers finally managed to kill of the game and go through to the Play off semi-finals.

Nottingham Lions 6 Sollihull 0
Admission £3 with a discount for those who attended the Panthers V Fife game.
Just to watch the title lifted by the Lions.

Elite Ice Hockey League Challenge Cup Final

2nd Leg Nottingham Panthers 1 Sheffield Steelers 2
1st Leg Aggregate Score SS 1 NP 4
2nd Leg Aggregate Score NP 5 SS 3
Final Aggregate Score 5-3

Admission Adult Ticket £16

Programme Paid for at the Sunday Fixture

I attended the Challenge cup final on Tuesday after booking a ticket whilst sitting in pit and pendulum at 11:00 on Sunday night to watch the Panthers play in a big game against Steelers.

This game was a big game for both teams because the Steelers who lost on the Sunday to Coventry in Overtime and then the Panthers who could make it 4 Challenge Cup Victories in the last 4 years.

The game itself started with the usual anticipation that comes with a Panthers V Steelers game who was without their Coach Ryan Finnerty after he picked up a suspension with the comments he made after the coventry loss. With 2 goals being scored in the first period by the Steelers of which left all Panthers fans on the edge of their seats. However this didn't last long before hot shot Bruce Graham scored on the rebound to put the game to bed.

After the game Sheffield skated straight off without waiting to pick up their runners-up medals and every Steelers supporter left straight after the game with only 1 staying to watch the Panthers pick up there medals and pick up the trophy of which was paraded in front of the sell out crowd with everyone chanting about the 4th Challenge cup trophy picked up in the last 4 years.

Bring on Play-off Weekend!!!!!!!

Thursday 28th March 7.45pm (started at 8.09pm)
National Ice Hockey League South Division One
Bracknell Hornets 4 Cardiff NIHL Devils 5
Admission £6
Programme £2

Very rare midweek game in this league, scheduled to fulfill a fixture that had no bearing on the forthcoming play-offs or final positions. Decent goon free game as a result & my 3rd visit to watch the Hornets this season.

Saturday 6th April 6pm (started at 6.10pm)
National Ice Hockey League South Division One Play-offs Quarter Final 1st Leg - breathe.................
Bracknell Hornets 4 Romford Raiders 8
Admission £6
Programme £2

Decent game that Romford ran away with in the final period, winning it 5-2 to take a healthy lead in to tomorrows 2nd leg at Rom Valley Way. The Hornets a very young side, complimented by a few older experienced players, who seem to play for the love of the game and don't tend to get involved in any goonery or other on ice nonsense. Off the ice the Hornets are a very friendly bunch making visits here an enjoyable experience. As they predominantly play at 6pm on Saturdays, they're pretty handy to do on the way home from a localish 3pm football match.

No-one I spoke to seemed to know what format the playoff Semi-Finals will take or if there'll be any game against the Northern Winners either.

Pre Season Challenge
Widnes Wild 1 Sheffield Spartans 6
Att: 320 ish
Admission: £3
Prog: £1

Very surreal experience of watching ice hockey in an unfinished new facility in deepest RL territory, with a big crowd (for this level) but little or no use of the PA (bar the music).

The arena is a Silver Blades new build and has lots of potential but currently lacks seats and a bar, so all the viewing was up against the plexiglass, far from ideal as seasoned hockey watchers will confirm. There is another pre season game on Sept 25th v Trafford but then there will be nothing til late October whilst the rest of the rink interior is kitted out. Parking is plentiful and free (the rink is in the Widnes Waterside development, another bland retail/leisure park with the usual suspects on board).

The game was fairly forgettable after the first period (1-1), with the higher division visitors being too quick and streetwise for a Wild team missing 6 of their first choice squad due to holidays and work.

Personally I wouldn't have played this game in public as the impression of the rink to non-regulars wouldn't be favourable (you need to watch hockey from an elevated position to get the best out of it.) and lacking 6 players in your first run out against higher level opposition it was only ever going to end one way.

I'll take another look in October when the rink is fully operational from a hockey perspective.

English National League Division 1 South

Solent and Gosport Devils 3 Cardiff ENL Devils 5


admission £8-00 inc programme (better than last year), attendance est 200

It's back! Solent aiming to avoid bottom spot this season have recruited a few new players and made a good start to this game, taking the lead after 2:23. Pressing aggressively they had the better chances in the first period, and it was a bit of a surprise when Cardiff equalised. In the second period Cardiff took the lead but a Johnson double put Solent ahead before Cardiff made it 3-3. Another close final period with Cardiff taking the lead with 11:06 to go. With 6 mins to go and Solent chasing the game they unaccountably brought on enforcer Rich. Two mins later he got 2+2+10, Cardiff then scored and the game was over. Unbelievable. An encouraging performance nonetheless. Good turnout and atmosphere.
Gosport Sports Complex is now finished - looks good, swimming pool, carvery/pub, Premier Inn.... unfortunately all the refurbishment brought the ice rink was a new scoreboard and a bit more lighting. Apparently Planet Ice wouldn't pay for any more Unsure.

Sunday 15th September 6pm (actually started at 6.28pm)
National League South Division One @ The Hive
Bracknell Hornets 3 Wightlink Raiders 4
Admission £7 (up a quid from last season)
Programme £2 (not as good as usual)

First game of the season at The Hive and the usual good goon free fare on offer (quite surprising given that the Wightlink coach is ex London meathead Jeremy Cornish). Bracknell lead 1-0 & 3-2 but leaked two goals right at the start of the 3rd period and never really looked like tying the game after that. I was one number away from winning the 50-50 draw and there was a decent crowd in tonight so the prize would have been a decent one Frown

English National League Division 1 South

Solent and Gosport Devils 6 Bracknell Hornets 2

admission £8-00 programme now 50p attendance est 180


Patience was required this evening - an 1830 face-off that started at 1857, then 20 minutes of delays in all as referee Ross had a nasty fall and they sent out for a replacement.
The game, however, was exciting end-to-end stuff with both teams really going for it. And Devils were by no means outclassed. They took the lead in 41 seconds after a terrible error by Hornets' new netminder David Wride (ex-Invicta - he played really well after that) but the visitors came back straight after the first delay for the referee injury to equalise and then take the lead. Francis equalised immediately, though, to make it 2-2 at the end of the first quarter. After a 15-minute delay while the replacement referee arrived Hornets dominated, but a goal from a long shot by Baird was disallowed and the Devils came back well. And it was Abbott who put them ahead by the end of the quarter with his second. Hornets pressed again at the start of the third quarter (netminder Cole again outstanding for Devils) but Johnson got the crucial fourth with 12:40 left to play. Two further goals in quick succession gave Devils the win, their first of the season. The new signings are really helping!

I'm confused you say in the report that Devils won, but give the score as 25-6 to Bracknell.

Sorry - typo!

Should read Solent and Gosport Devils 6 Bracknell Hornets 2
I've re-edited my original post.

25-6 - that would have been some game too!

Solent lost 31-2 at Oxford in 2004 during their previous incarnation as the Sharks

Saturday 28th September 6pm
National League South Division One @ The Hive
Bracknell Hornets 11 Milton Keynes Thunder 1
Admission £7
Programme apparently Sold Out but I never saw anyone with one

2nd visit of the day to a venue called The Hive, arrived at 6.15 due to Barnet v Salisbury not finishing until 5pm and getting stuck in traffic trying to get to the M25. Missed the first 5 mins play & also Bracknell's first goal.

This was a poor niggly game and not the indicative of the fare usually on offer here. MK were very poor and might be better suited to a season in Div 2 whilst their rink is refurbished as they haven't played a home game yet and are having to train in Peterborough.

Speaking of Peterborough, we had a Canadian match announcer tonight and during the 2 period break he updated us with the score from the Bracknell Bees game, they were "tied at 1 with Peters Borrow" according to our friend Smile I took this to mean that they were drawing 1-1 at Peterborough Phantoms

English National League Div 1 North (also now known as the Moralee Conference)
Telford Titans 0 Blackburn Hawks 10
Att: 150 (est)
Adm: £6
Prog: 24pp, £1.50 (looks good but little in it)

After my pleasant sojourn to the Powys countryside (see Rugby Union) going to Telford was a bit of a culture shock! The rink is in the Town Centre (well signposted) and has a decent amount of parking (free after 6pm and on Sunday). The rink itself has had a facelift but it's incredibly bright inside with all the backdrops now painted brilliant white and is a tad off putting under the bright lights. Spectator viewing is upstairs the length of one side and affords a decent view of the action.

The Titans are the second team in the Telford structure and this year look woefully weak in what is a very strong division. Many of their senior players have moved on and I only counted 4 on the ice on Saturday with any meaningful ENL experience, the bulk of the team being Under 18s or players just out of U18s. Blackburn scored 10 without really breaking sweat and from the end of the first period it was barely a meaningful contest.

Blackburn on the other hand do look very strong this year after making some shrewd additions to an already half decent squad. They've played 4 games so far in league & cup, scoring 22 goals and only conceding 3, their games with Solway, Billingham and Whitley should be well worth watching.

Friday 4th October 2013
Leipzig Icefighters 0 Erfurt Black Dragons 0
Nordost Pokal
Admission 10 euro
Programme - not sure
Att - around 2,500

Well a first for me, game abandoned due to a couple of wet patches on the rink. The first period ended on 18 minutes and that was it. We waited for about 40 minutes for the patches to freeze but in the end the referees abandoned the game.

I expected some East German relic of a rink. Instead I got the German equivalent of the Brixton temporary set up but the spectator facilities are better. The spectator areas are on three sides. Down one side is a steel framed wooden planked terrace with crush barriers. Behind one goal is a seated stand and the other is standing I think.

Lots of noise and singing from both sets of supporters. The Leipzig supporters lighting lots of sparklers before the start of the game. Most of the refreshments are outside with a table club shop inside. Didn't see any programmes except on the tram on the way back to the city centre. I saw someone with a club newspaper. Don't know if it was a programme. A league newspaper was on sale on entry for 1 euro.

The rink is in an industrial area with a McDonalds nearby. It's easy to reach from Leipzig station on tram no 3, direction Taucha.
