Moralee Conference Weekend Round Up - 15th & 16th November

A very quiet weekend saw only 1 league game played - Sheffield Spartans beat Manchester Minotaurs  5-2 on Saturday.

In the ECCN, Solway Sharks lost 10-2 away at Manchester Phoenix EPL on Saturday night. There were outshot 52-18 in a game that only saw 2 minutes in penalties. It was 2-2 at one point early on in the first period but that was as good as it got for the Sharks as 4 goals in each of the 2nd and 3rd periods showed the huge difference in playing terms between the EPL and NIHL.

On Sunday, Billingham Stars were beaten at home 1-10 by Sheffield Steeldogs EPL. The shots on goal were a lot closer at 44 to 51 and, at the end of the first period, the score was just 1-2 to the visitors. However 7 unanswered goals in the second period sealed it for the :Dogs  and Stars remain firmly at the bottom of the group table with just 1 win from their 8 games.
