NIHL North Moralee Conference Round Up - Weekend of 18th & 19th January 2014

Blackburn Hawks continued their outstanding new year form with a 3-1 home win over Sutton Sting which saw them leapfrog the Nottinghamshire side into 3rd place in the Moralee Conference. This was the Hawks' 9th win in a row and brought to an end Sutton's own impressive 9 from 10 recent playing record, 

Billingham Stars retained their second place in the table by virtue of their 9-1 win over bottom club Telford Titans. They are now just 2 points ahead of Blackburn and have played two games more.

Elsewhere in the Moralee Conference, Whitley Warriors put an end to their mid season slump by winning their first game since early December with a 5-2 home victory over Sheffield Spartans while Solway Sharks' 11-2 win against Manchester Minotaurs on Saturday night means that they remain 3 points clear at the top of the table with games in hand over all the teams in the chasing pack.
