Ice Hockey: Solihull Barons 5 vs Billingham Stars 1

Solihull Barons had a fruitful weekend against Teeside team Billingham Stars by taking full points on Sunday and the previous day when they travelled away.

Barons opened the scoring just after 9 minutes when Stephen Heape taking the puck solo into the Billingham end. His wrap around the boards was picked up by Tom Soar who worked round the Stars defence and shot the puck back of the net to put the home side into the lead.

Barons second goal came four minutes into the second period as Niklas Ottosson trailed the puck into the Billingham net from a few feet out. The Stars countered mid-period when a shot came back off the boards to leave a tap-in for Deniss Baškatovs past the now out of position Nicholls in the Solihull net. This gave the Stars a bit of a boost and for a spell the game started to look much more evenly balanced.

The third period would see one final goal, again for the Barons and probably the goal of the night as Stephen Heape cut through the Billingham defence before finding space around James Flavells in the Stars net for Solihull’s number 5.

Baron’s Stephen Heape was a happy man as he was chosen MOM for his outstanding effort, assist and a goal.

Next home game is on Sunday February 4, 2018 when Barons welcome the Dragons to Planet Ice Solihull, Face-off 6:00 pm.
