The Chronicle - - Motors Grassroots Sport -

WHIT­LEY Braves opened their ac­count in English Un­der-18 North Di­vi­sion Two with a dis­ap­point­ing 9-2 de­feat in Al­trin­cham against Manch­ester Storm.

The Braves handed de­buts to Adam Har­ri­son fol­low­ing his move from Billingham Stars and Cal­lum Tay­lor, who has re­turned to the club fol­low­ing a spell at Sh­effield.

Manch­ester took the lead when their cap­tain Sam Pen­ner notched af­ter just 29 sec­onds.

Their ad­van­tage was dou­bled in the sev­enth minute with the home side short-handed when Dy­lan Har­court net­ted.

Storm were the dom­i­nant force through­out most of the first pe­riod and Jack Wake­field in the vis­i­tors’ net had to be on top of his game to keep the score down.

It re­mained at 2-0 un­til 20.06 when the Braves halved the deficit Thomas Fraser (right) reg­is­ter­ing his open­ing goal of the sea­son. Wake­field was beaten four times in a lit­tle over three min­utes just af­ter the game’s mid­dle point as Manch­ester went 6-1 ahead cour­tesy of Har­court, Billy King, Sam Jones and Kieran Clark­son. Jones and Clark­son took the score to 8-1 be­fore Fraser recorded his sec­ond goal of the game at 49.54.

The scor­ing was com­pleted with a pow­er­play goal at 53.51 put away by Max Sul­li­van.
