Blackburn Hawks vs Solway Sharks

Recap

The BCD Solway Sharks travelled down to the Blackburn Arena on Sunday to play the Hawks for the third game in a row and duly made it a clean sweep thanks to Stuart Kerr’s late winner.

The Hawks, back on home ice, came flying out of the blocks determined to avenge the previous evening demolition at the Shark Tank and quickly took the lead when Corey Stones (01:42) converted from Nicholas Oliver’s pass. While there were no further goals for the supporters to celebrate their was certainly plenty of action and both netminders were kept busy with the Hawks outshooting the Sharks by fourteen shots to eleven.

Coach Grubb worked his magic during the first intermission and Solway and Stevie Moore (23:20) soon levelled the scores after good build up play from Connor Henderson and Daniel Abercrombie. While Blackburn always looked dangerous the Sharks were beginning to gain a greater share of possession and just before the mid-way point in the match Connor Henderson (29:31) netted from Stevie Moore’s pass to take the lead.

Four minutes into the final period the home side were dealt a blow when netminder Stuart Ashton received his marching orders for unsportsmanlike behaviour and was replaced between the pipes by Niks Trapans. Lack of control was to further hit the home side eight minutes from time when player/coach Steven Duncombe was given a five plus match for boarding. These losses, however, didn’t seem to affect the Hawks too much as Aaron Davies (55:32) once more found himself in the right place at the right time to level the scores from Robert Streetly’s pass. The Sharks were in no mood to lie down and took the lead just thirty-two seconds later when Stuart Kerr (56:04) netted what proved to be the winner after being set up by Duncan Speirs and Stevie Moore.

The Solway Sharks Man of the Match Award was presented to Connor Henderson.
