In the Moralee Conference, Solway Sharks meet Sutton Sting in the two legged final of the NIHL Northern  Cup.  The first leg takes place in Dumfries on Saturday night and the second leg at iceSheffield on Sunday.

In the Laidler Conference, there is just one re-arranged game left to play.  Hull Jets entertain Widnes Wild in a game that will decide which of the two teams will take part in the end of season play offs at Solihull over the Easter weekend.  Wild are currently in 7th place with 21 points but a win would lift them above both Sheffield Senators and Hull who are both on 22 points. A draw would see the Jets maintain their 5th place in the table and secure them the final play off berth.

In NIHL South Division 1, the quarter finals of the play offs are played over two legs on Saturday and Sunday evening while in South 2, Oxford City Stars take on Slough Jets in a match that could decided the destination of the title.  

We'll bring you all the results and reports as we get them over the weekend - so please check back!.
