The last two weekends have brought back-to-back defeats for the Buccaneers in this year’s Ice Hockey Summer Classic campaign.
Firstly, the Buccs took on the Sheffield Ice Tigers on 14th May. After defeating the Yorkshire side 6-4 away from home, the Buccs were hoping to get more points on the board in this one. That’s not how it panned out though as a very close game resulted in Sheffield reversing that home defeat, leaving Blackburn with a 6-4 win of their own.
Sunday saw the Buccaneers hosted Flintshire at Blackburn Arena in the return fixture from our trip to Deeside earlier in the year. That game finished 10-1 to the Phantoms so the Buccs were under no illusions that this was going to be tough. Especially with only 4 defencemen and 8 forwards facing a full Flintshire bench.
The Buccs opened the Puckstop.com Summer Classic with a hard fought 6-4 victory over the Sheffield Ice Tiger. Starting the game with a short bench, it was backs to the wall for over half the match, as captain Michael Walsh was ejected for a very tame 3rd-man-in penalty early in the 2nd period. However the two lines skated hard right to the final buzzer and held on for the victory.
