Sledge Hockey: Mayhem V Steelstings At Widnes This Saturday

The Mayhem sledge hockey team play their last game of the regular season when they take on the Sheffield Steelstings this Saturday 16th July at Planet Ice Widnes – 4pm face off 

The Widnes-based team are on a roll at the moment having won their last two games – 0-10 away to the Steelstings and then 1-7 away to the Peterborough Phantoms last weekend so will be keen to sign off with a flourish .

The British Para Ice Hockey League – to give its full and correct title – had to miss the 2020 and 2021 seasons due to the Covid  pandemic and various lockdowns but it is back this year with a 5 team competition playing home and away fixtures over the summer months.

The Mayhem team includes a number of GB international players - as well as Canadian Peggy Assinck  who is a GB coach, and head of the new GB Women’s Para Ice Hockey programme, while also playing for her native country.

The Mayhem are currently 3rd in the British Para Ice Hockey League table just ahead of the Steelstings who are in 4th place.  The pairings for the end of season play offs are decided by final league positions so every game is crucial at this stage of the season.

The game on Saturday at Widnes faces off at 4.00pm and admission is free for all spectators.
