Sharks attack hits the Hawks
8:30am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Sport
REVENGE tasted sweet for defending champions Solway Sharks on Sunday as they condemned Blackburn Hawks to their first league defeat of the campaign.
Hawks famously ended Sharks’ 34-game unbeaten run last season on their way to play-off glory.
But the Dumfries-based outfit’s first match back at the Blackburn Arena since that 6-1 drubbing ended on a happier note.
They returned to Scotland with a 2-1 victory in the bag after they punished Hawks’ failure to take their chances.
Sharks opened the scoring but they were pegged back before the first period was out when Ric Hughes netted a deserved equaliser for the hosts.
The visitors responded strongly in the second period but the contest remained level going into the final 20 minutes.
That all changed within seconds of the third period when Juraj Senko scored what proved to be Sharks’ winner.
Hawks still had time to rescue a point from the closely fought clash.
But their lack of killer touch in front of goal cost them dear.
