Saturday 2nd April will see the Blackburn Buccaneers head over to Hull for their opening game of the Summer League campaign against the Kingston City Knights. The Knights already have two league games under their belt and have hit the ground running with two very convincing victories over the Sheffield Ice Tigers, scoring 30 goals and only conceding 3 in the process.
The Buccaneers will have to be at their best to halt the momentum of the Knights. Club captain Michael Walsh had this to say:
Whilst we don’t really know anything about the Knights, they have come up with two huge results against Sheffield so we know we will have to be on top of our game. We’re taking a solid team over to Hull and the key to getting a victory will be playing as a unit and taking our chances when we create them. In our recent game against Flintshire we created lots in front of their goal but sometimes struggled to hit the net, if we repeat that against Kingston we could be punished.
Faceoff is at 17.15 at Hull Ice Arena and scores will be posted on our Twitter account @BuccaneersIHC
