Laidler Conference Weekend Round Up - 7th & 8th March

Widnes Wild enjoyed a 4 point weekend with home wins over Coventry Blaze (6-2) and Bradford Bulldogs (10-0) which keeps them on track for a fourth place finish and coveted promotion playoff against the second bottom team in the Moralee Conference.

League leaders Solihull Barons stretched their 100% record for the season thus far to 27 games with a 7-5 win over Deeside Dragons  

Second place Telford Tigers were without a game at the weekend and have 4 games left – one of which is a double pointer at home to Hull Jets – to try and make up the 10 point gap with the Barons.  However, their last two games are home and away against the Barons who they have failed to beat this season so far. 

Third place Sheffield Senators won 1-8 away in Hull and are assured of a third place finish – and the third automatic promotion place

In the other Laidler game of the weekend, Blackburn Eagles inflicted Bradford’s second defeat of the weekend with a last minute goal sealing a close fought 5-6 encounter.

The Eagles – having their best season results- wise for many a year are currently second bottom in  the table but are now just 1 point behind 8th place Coventry Blaze with 3 games left to play.
