Solihull Barons 5
Fylde Flyers 2
SUNDAY night saw the Sheldon Jewellery Centre Solihull Barons continue to build on their impressive home form, in their quest for the National Ice Hockey League North title, writes Gareth Thomson.
Solihull started the match fairly well, however an impressive performance by Samuel Heyes in the Fylde net limited the Barons advantage at the end of the first period to a single solitary goal by Charlie Hammerton.
The lead lasted only as long as the first minute of the second period, which saw a fast starting Fylde cancel this advantage when a goal by Andrew Clark brought the two sideslevel.
The Barons kept to their game plan however, and three more goals followed in the middle period.
The pick of these came in the form of a sweet one-timer through the Fylde defence by Solihull captain, Chris Allen.
The third period saw only a single goal, the Barons fifth this time from Rich Slater.
