Minotaurs Fall 15-1 To Rampant Shark
The Building Craftsmen (Dumfries) Ltd. Solway Sharks welcomed the Manchester Minotaurs to the Shark Tank on Saturday evening for their final fixture of 2014 and duly ran out victors by fifteen goals to one.
The first period saw the Sharks run in nine goal without reply and young Kyle Johnston replaced Gary Russell between the pipe after just twelve minutes. Goal scorers in the first period were as follows: Duncan Speirs (04:28 & 12:38), Richard Bentham (08:07), Ross Murray (08:42), Stevie Adams (10:52), Aidan Fulton (11:23), Josh Hay (13:03 & 17:53 pictured) and Stevie Moore (16:29).
In the second period the Sharks were able to take their foot off the gas to some extent but they still found the net three times through Josh Hay (33:38), Struan Tonnar (35:01) and Ross Murray (36:43) before Lee Pollitt (38:20) gave the Minotaurs a well-deserved consolation goal.
In the final period the Sharks completed a professional display with three more goals from Marc Fowley (44:23 & 47:06) and first goal in Sharks colours for Jens Engelen (56:26).
Sharks Welcome Their Youngest Ever Fan
Question - what would you do if you were only two days old? Well Craig Andrew David Watson, born on Thursday, quite rightly decided he wanted to see the Sharks play the Hawks on Saturday night and brought his mum and dad along for company.
Is this some kind of record for a youngest ever hockey fan? I'm certain its a Sharks record.
On behalf of everyone at the Sharks - welcome to the hockey family Craig Andrew David Watson. Sorry we couldn't get you the win.
