Well the hawks set a blistering pace straight off the whistle with Ben Golonton Daly and Noah Kidd firing off shots on the first shift. It didn't take long to find the back of the net as Rhys Edwards hammered one home assisted by Lucas Vince at 3:51.Coventry soon recovered and the action was end to end with Bayley holding on to some hard shots from Coventry. We returned the favour with shots from Ben G, Ben McLellen, Brodie Kidd, Lucas, Jake Holden and Noah.
There was some great passing from our defenders up the ice to get us into the Coventry zone and keep it there for some long shifts. The first period ended with us up by one.
After 17 seconds in the second period Ben Godlonton Daly nailed a shot into the net soon followed by another at 21:23, both assisted by Noah. At 22:38 Coventry caught us on the back foot and scored twice in two minutes just to make sure we knew they weren't going to take things lightly. Jacob Brownlie, Oliver Massey and Brodie made some great passes on their line with Dan Horton and Chloe Strong holding up the defence well.
Ben G completed his hat trick at 26:58 with Noah his assist. Soon after Noah got put in the penalty box for roughing and spent his two minutes watching his teammates battling short handed to keep Coventry out of their zone.
Fifteen minutes into the second half Jake scored a blinder from the blue line swiftly followed by Noah scoring another unassisted goal in the 19th minute.
We ended 6:2 up after a game that saw some brilliant defending and a lot of top quality passing. Well done to Ben G for his first hatrick and to Jake for man of the match after his return from injury.
