Solihull Barons keep Hull Jets grounded

BARONS recorded their seventh win in as many matches after a resounding 18-2 victory on the road at Hull Jets in the Laidler Conference.

The first period was dominated by the Barons with the Solihull team outshooting the Jets 30 to 13 on Sunday evening.

Without finding the need to over exert themselves, the visitors closed out the period 8-0 in front which included a brace for Niklas Ottosson, who this week joined Coventry Blaze on a 30-day deal.

The Barons eased off in the second period which allowed Hull to gradually work their way into the game.

The Jets opened their account in the 26th minute with Matt Jeffcock finding the net but a couple of minutes later Tom Soar picked up the rebound from a Phil Knight long range effort for the Barons’ ninth goal.

A penalty by Knight would lead to a Jets second goal with Jeffcock again finding a way past Josh Nicholls.

But Hull’s second goal was cancelled by Joe Henry to ensure the Barons retained the eight goal advantage.

And in the final 20 minutes the Barons seemed to score at will, notching up a further ten goals without a loss. The highlight of the spell came from Tom Soar who placed the puck twice into the Hull next in the space of only seven seconds.

The emphatic win reinforces their position at the top of the table ahead of a busy double header this weekend.

On Saturday Barons make the trip to Ice Sheffield to take on second-placed Senators while on Sunday they have their last home game for nearly a month by hosting Nottingham Lions.
