SNL round-up: Sharks demolish the Pirates, Comets progress to the last four

Solway Sharks maintained their unbeaten record in the Scottish National League (SNL) with two victories over the weekend.

The Sharks were given a fright by a hard-working North Ayrshire Wild outfit on Saturday, with the home side restricting the league leaders to just a single goal by the 40-minute mark.

However, Martin Grubb’s side pulled away in the final period to record a 7-0 victory – Jaakko Heiskanen (2), Peter Gapa (2), Scott Crane (2) and Ruairi Lockerbie got their goals.

Solway found things much easier the following day as they produced a thoroughly dominating performance on home ice against Paisley Pirates.

The visitors had no answer to the rampant Sharks who ran out emphatic 14-3 winners – Iain Bowie and Scott Henderson both weighed in with hat-tricks for Solway.

Dundee Comets are through to the semi-finals of the Stuart Robertson Cup (SRC) after claiming top spot in the northern group. The Comets triumphed 5-4 at home to Dundee Tigers and followed up with a 4-3 victory over Aberdeen Lynx.

Kilmarnock Thunder’s struggles continued as they were beaten 27-0 on home ice by Paisley in the southern section.
