Blackburn Hawks hammered bottom team Sheffield Senators 12-3 on Sunday night – firing an incredible 89 shots on Mark Hartley’s net - and remain top of the table still unbeaten after 9 games. They also won 3-8 away at Solway Sharks the night before in the NIHL North Cup. Second place Whitley Warriors remain in touch with the top after their 6-1 win away at Sheffield Senators on Saturday keeps them two points behind the Hawks, albeit having played one game more.
The other Moralee game of the weekend saw Billingham Stars win 1-3 away at Sutton Sting to pick up their 4th win of the season. Last season’s runners up remain in the bottom half of the table, 4 points drift of the play off places at this early stage of the season.
