Moralee Conference Round Up Weekend of 15th & 16th February 2014

Solway Sharks secured the Moralee Conference / North 1 title for the second year in a row with a 4-0 shut-out win away at Billingham Stars.  This came after their 8-5 home win over Whitley Warriors on Saturday night and means that, with 4 games left to play, the team from Dumfries can't be caught at the top of the table.

Whitley's 3-1 win at home to Sutton Sting means that they are now level on points with the Sutton in Ashfield club in the race to secure the final play off spot, although the Sting have a game in hand.

In the weekend's other games, Manchester Minotaurs beat Telford Titans 5-3 to pick up their first win since the middle of December while Blackburn Hawks' 3-3 draw away at Sheffield Spartans on Saturday means that they now edge 1 point head of Billingham in 2nd place in the table, with one game in hand.
