Win & A Loss In Start To BIPHA Season

23 Oct

The Hornets started the first day of the 2017/18 BIPHA Central season with a win Vs Khaos (7-5) and a loss to the Bauer Cyclones (4-5).

The day started off bad with the Hornets being bizarrely forced to start their first game Vs Khaos earlier than scheduled and soon found themselves down 3-1, but manged to gain control of the game in the second period finishing 7-5.

In the second game they were unlucky to find themselves down early again (3-0) but managed to pull the game back but the efforts were in vain and they eventually fell 5-4 for their first loss of the new season.

The team are back in action in the BISHA Nationals at Herne Bay on the 11th & 12th November and will be next in action in the BIPHA season against old rivals the Norton Cyclones the week after on the 19th November.

Disapointing Blowout Loss for the Hornets

8 May

The Hornets suffered their worst loss of the season and in recent memory with an 8-1 defeat by rivals Norton Cyclones on Sunday.

The day started well with the Hornets defeating Killamarsh Khaos 7-1 before a crucial and possibly even a title deciding match with the Cyclones in which the Hornets never looked into the game after going down 3-0 early in the first period.

Matt Viney pulled a goal back just before the break but the Cyclones never let up scoring five unanswered goals in the second period.

With the BIPHA Central league title all but out of reach for the Hornets the team are back in action for the last games of the season on the 21st May with games against the Blackhawks and the Devils before turning their attention to the BIPHA Nationals and then the IISHF European Championships.
