Titan Lose The Match But Win St. Andrew's Cup
The Solway Sharks enjoyed a feeding frenzy at the Shark Tank on Saturday evening against a very short-benched and inexperienced Telford Titans side. While the Sharks won the match 35-1 the result is unlikely to stand as it is under review by the League Management Committee and it is more likely that the game will be awarded to the Sharks 5-0.
Before the match began it was agreed that there would be a penalty shootout competition at the end with the winners claiming the St. Andrew's Cup. The score was tied after the regulation six penalties apiece but Benjamin Michael Washburn (pictured) became his sides hero with the sudden death winner on Telford's tenth penalty. This was no less than the Titans deserved after a difficult match where they showed great character and never once let their heads drop. Full match report now on-line.

Connor Henderson Wins Junior Sports Personality Of The Year.Junior Sports Personality of the Year sponsored by The Co-operative. Its been a good few days for Connor Henderson.
After making a scoring debut for the Solway Sharks first team, he followed that up by providing three assists and being named man of the match in their win over Blackburn Hawks on Saturday. In between, he won the Junior Sports Personality of the Year, which is sponsored by The Co-operative.
Connor, who is in fifth year at Castle Douglas High, has played for Scotland's under 17's four times this year and helped the Sharks win the under 18's league last year. He was the leading scorer in the league, despite being just 15.
Last year he was a member of Team GB under 18's prospects squad but moved to the main squad this year. And he looks to have a bright future, with a number of invites from colleges in Canada on the table. Connor, who also represents his school at football and basketball, is so dedicated to sport that he had to leave the ceremony before the photoshoot so he could attend training!
