Sharks too strong for determined Sutton

The BCD Solway Sharks cruised past Sutton Sting at the Shark Tank on Saturday evening to cement their place at the top of the NIHL (North) D1 Moralee Conference as they scored three goals without reply.

Mark Fowley pounced on a loose puck in the slot to open the scoring at 09:05 with Kim Miettinen and James Wallace picking up assists on the play.

Despite controlling most of the possession and territory Solway found Dmitri Zimozdra impossible to beat again until 36:42 when Jordan Buesa stabbed the puck home from close range (assists to Struan Tonnar and Ben Edmonds).

The final session started brightly for the home side with Mark Fowley and Stevie Moore setting up Daniel Abercrombie to score with a crisp shot from the right-hand face-off circle. However, that was to be the end of the scoring for the night with the Man-of-the-Match Awards going to Martin Finkes for Sutton and to Kieran Hobbins for the Sharks.

While the visitors were well-worthy of their victory the Sharks certainly had their chances to put this tie to bed but poor finishing and an inspired goal-tender combined to thwart their efforts.
