Both teams play their home games at iceSheffield so the weekend was a very carbon friendly and the Spartans won both encounters 7-1. They lead the table on goal difference while the Senators prop up the table having “played two - lost two”.
Solway Sharks currently occupy the unusual (for them) position of second from bottom as they have also lost both their opening games – a 3-5 home defeat to Billingham Stars coming hot on the heels of the 7-4 loss away at Whitley a week earlier.
The Warriors are currently second having also won both their opening games after a 2-6 win away over Moralee new boys Solihull Barons. The other newly promoted team Telford Tigers lost 5-3 away at reigning champions Blackburn Hawks. The result was incredibly close considering they were outshot by the Hawks by 80 shots to 37.
Blackburn drop down to third despite having a 100% record so far as they have an inferior goal difference to both Spartans and Whitley. Sutton Sting are one of 5 teams that have zero points so far this season although they are the only team yet to play a game.
