With no Elite League programme, attention focussed on the Womens Premier League this past weekend.
Chelmsford Cobras extended their lead at the top of WPL to three points with a 4-3 win at Streatham Storm. Beth Hill scored two including the game winner less than four minutes from time.
Widnes Wild held off a Kingston Diamonds fightback to claim a 6-4 WPL success on home ice. Wild were 4-0 and 5-1 up before Kingston pulled back to 5-4. Katie Hills’ powerplay goal at 56.04 settled the nerves and sealed the points for Widnes.
In Division One North, Telford Wrekin Raiders had four players each with a brace of goals in their 9-3 Cup win at Coventry Phoenix.
Solent Amazons are the new leaders of Division 1 South, but they had a mixed weekend with a win and a loss. Solent won 7-2 at Peterborough Penguins on Saturday but went down 3-2 at home to Bracknell Firebees 24 hours later. Gabriella Smyth bagged the winner for Bracknell early in the final period.
