Solihull Barons 5
Telford Titans 4
IN-FORM Division 2 Sheldon Jewellery Centre Barons played host to a Division 1 Telford where the visitors started the brighter, Chris Jones scoring inside two minutes.
Solihull worked their way into the first period with a Rich Slater breakaway taking the puck beyond the reach of Sam Hewitt in the Telford goal.
home supporters were rewarded in the final minutes of the period when Barons’ youngster David Rogers made the most of a two-man advantage powerplay to score.
Barons extended their lead in the second thanks to a Mike Rodger effort but were again held in check with Chris Jones scoring his second a few minutes later.
The first five minutes of the final session saw both teams finding gaps between the opposition’s pipes.
For the Barons a second goal for Rodger and a first of the season for Toni Scialdone sandwiched a Josh Hushwick effort for the Titans.
A late powerplay goal for the Titans cut their deficit to the Barons back to a single goal.
