NIHL North: Laidler Conference Round Up - Weekend Of 8th & 9th February 2014

League leaders Solihull Barons showed no signs of cobwebs after their three week break as they demolished 3rd place Coventry Blaze 13-3 in the Midlands derby.

Second place Deeside Dragons beat Hull Jets 8-3 to keep the pressure up in the title but remain 3 points behind the Barons having played two games more.

Widnes Wild made it 3 wins a row with an 8-5 victory over Blackburn Eagles but failed to lift themselves out of 7th place as 6th place Sheffield Senators beat last season's champions Nottingham Lions 4-1. 

Two defeats in two days leave Hull Jets still 4 points behind Lions who occupy the coveted last play off spot.
