Sledge Hockey Weekend Round Up - 22nd & 23rd June

The BPIHL league table positions remain the same as we approach the half-way point of the season - with league leaders Peterborough Phantoms and second place Cardiff Huskies both winning at the weekend.

After a close couple of periods, Cardiff eventually saw off Sheffield Steelkings 4-2 on Saturday with goals from Tyler Christopher (2), Paul Furber and Jon Le Galloudec. Jake Oakley and Daniel Clarke were on target for the visitors. 

This victory drew the Huskies level on points with table toppers Peterborough overnight on Saturday – but still behind on goal difference – but the Phantoms moved ahead again with a 5-2 win over Manchester Mayhem on Sunday.

Gary Farmer scored 4 of the Phantoms’ 5 goals – with the other strike coming from Jamie Hutchcraft, while Karl Nicholson bagged a brace for the Mayhem.

The weekend results mean that Peterborough Phantoms remain top of the league table with 8 points from 4 games while Cardiff Huskies – also with a 100% record so far - are in second with 6 points from 3 games.

There is a fascinating tussle for 3rd and 4th place between Sheffield Steelkings and Manchester Mayhem who both lost at the weekend and who meet at Planet Ice Widnes this Sunday, 4.25pm face off in what is surely a “must win” game for both teams.

The other game of the weekend will see Cardiff travel to face the Steelstings in Sheffield on Saturday – 4.50pm face off.
