Sport: Telford Tigers 6-1 Bracknell Bees

Poor Bracknell, having to journey to the big spending Telford Tigers on the opening day of the season. The club that The Bees wouldn't do badly replicating; brand new rink in a brand new part of town with pretty solid ambitions for this season. Conversely the programme describes our beloved team from Berkshire as the potential 'surprise package'. To then lose 6-1 showed the sympathetic words for what they were. It started well - scoring first but conceding two seconds from the end of the first period - until two goals in the second were followed by another three in the third without an answer. The amount of penalty time picked up in the final twenty minutes was also excessive - Wiggins picked up a game for resisting the linesman, and Strycek a match for high sticks. Poor Mettam, he played so well - particularly in the first - when Telford hit the post twice, were through one-on-one twice, were on the powerplay twice, and had multiple attempts saved by the Bees' goaltender. Onto next weekend.
