Ice Hockey – UK Round-up (games played 23rd & 24th April)

Chelmsford Chieftains secured the ENL Division One South play-off crown with a stunning 9-3 aggregate win over Wightlink Raiders.

The Chieftains grabbed a 4-2 first leg advantage and completed the job on home ice with a comfortable 5-1 success.

They now face either Coventry Blaze and Whitley Warriors in the national final.

Coventry reached the Northern final after edging past Nottingham Lions.

The Lions held Blaze to a 1-1 draw in Coventry and seemed favourites to go through but Blaze had other ideas.

An end-to-end game finished 4-4 and with overtime failing to separate the teams it was left to Rhys McWilliams to notch the only goal in a thrilling shoot-out.
