Blackburn Hawks extended their lead at the top of the Moralee Conference table with a 4-point weekend that saw them hammer Sheffield Spartans away by 15 goals to 2 and then narrowly beat second place Whitley Warriors 4-3 at home. 

Despite being heavily outshot throughout the game, the Warriors were actually leading 1-3 at the end of the first period and the Hawk’s GWG only in the 57th minute courtesy of Canadian import RJ Berra. Hawks are now 9 points ahead of the Warriors – who have one game in hand.

Billingham Stars potentially moved themselves to within spitting distance of a play off place with a 4-6 win away at Solihull Barons on Sunday evening.  Three goals from Swedish import Dennis Bostrom helped gain the points that now move the Stars to within 3 points of the 4th place Barons with two games in hand. 
Telford Tigers who are in 3rd place on the same points as the Barons were beaten 4-2 away at Sutton Sting which means that just 3 points separate the 4 teams in the chasing pack behind the top two.

IN the other Moralee game of the weekend, Solway Sharks beat Sheffield Senators 14-0 in Dumfries on Saturday night.
