Merciless Mohawks Maul Tiger Cubs to Move Up the Table; WHITLEY ON CLOUD NINE AFTER STORMING WIN JUNIOR ICE HOCKEY

Article excerpt

WHITLEY Mohawks are up to fifth in English Under-13 North Division Two after a 9-0 away demolition of Nottingham Tiger Cubs' second string. Mohawks went ahead after seven minutes through Josh Hutton with the only goal of the first period.

The second session was not a minute old when the visitors doubled their advantage through leading scorer Matthew Betham, and less than a minute later it was 3-0 when Owen Curry found the back of the net. Hutton scored his second goal 16 seconds from the end of the period.

Mohawks tested Nottingham's back-up netminder as soon as she came on to replace the starting netminder as Harvey Starkie struck the fourth and fifth goals for the visitors at 33.56 and 37.13 respectively.

Owen Yarrow, who marked his debut with an assist in the previous victory over Solihull Barons, followed it up with Whitley's fifth at 38.26.

Curry is the league's sixth-top scorer with 10 goals and three assists, while team-mate Betham has 13 goals to add to five assists and is fourth-leading points scorer.

This was Mohawks' third successive victory, a sequence in which they have scored 30 goals and conceded only five.

The score is expected to stand. The deadlock was broken at 10.19 when Alex Nergaard put Braves ahead, the Northern Under-15 Conference player's first goal at this level.

From the restart, Braves took possession and GB Under-16 international Jamie Ord doubled the lead. Kingston picked up needless penalties which Whitley capitalised on as Kieron Downs and Ord scored on the powerplay for a 4-0 first-period lead.

Braves did not ease up in the second period, but the only addition to the score was a Steve McGuckin goal just after the game's halfway point. …
