The Chronicle - - Motors Grassroots Sport -

WHIT­LEY Tom­a­hawks made it four points out of four when they de­feated Soli­hull Barons 7-4 in English Un­der-15 North Di­vi­sion Two at the Hobs Moat Rink.

They had to come from be­hind to win the game af­ter the home side was the quick­est out of the blocks.

The Barons went ahead af­ter only ten sec­onds when Mak­sims Fomins nabbed his first goal of the game.

The Tom­a­hawks pressed for an equaliser but found them­selves 2-0 down against the run of play when Fomins added his sec­ond on 07.36.

The vis­i­tors pulled a goal back four min­utes later cour­tesy of Owen Curry’s first counter of the sea­son.

The Tom­a­hawks then drew level 61 econds into the mid­dle pe­riod de­spite be­ing short-handed as Owen Yar­row sat out a mi­nor penalty - Curry with his sec­ond goal of the game.

It was a sec­ond pow­er­play op­por­tu­nity for Tom­a­hawks when they took the lead through Yar­row, Matthew Betham pick­ing up the as­sist.

In this mid­dle ses­sion, the Tom­a­hawks were more clin­i­cal in front of the net than their hosts and two strikes in as many min­utes from Curry put them 5-2 ahead.

Joel Bear­man in the Barons’ net was be­ing kept busy as he stopped the Tom­a­hawks from in­creas­ing their ad­van­tage while at the other end Jamie Ryan was beaten at 33.23 as Alexan­der Rogers re­duced the deficit.

Five min­utes later Yar­row claimed his sec­ond goal of the game and fifth of the sea­son.

Back came Soli­hull and Fomins reg­is­tered his hat-trick marker to cut the deficit to 6-4.

In the fi­nal minute of the match - and on the Tom­a­hawks’ fifth pow­er­play op­por­tu­nity - Josh Hut­ton struck home his first ef­fort of the cam­paign.
