The YKK sponsored Widnes Wild are next in action this Saturday 8th May when they take on Nottingham Lions in the Three Rivers Cup at Planet Ice Widnes – 1.30pm face off.
It’s one win for each team so far in the games between the two sides in this competition and, with the Wild still in with an outside chance of winning the cup, there is a lot to play for on Saturday. Nottingham currently sit bottom of the Three Rivers Cup table, having lost their last three games, and their only victory to date has been the opener against the Wild back in early April but they do have a game in hand over Widnes and leaders Sheffield.
Widnes strike pair Kieran Brown and Adam Barnes lead the scoring standings with 7+8 and 5+8 respectively but the Lions’ Vladimir Luke is in third place with 5+4.
The game is being played behind closed doors due to Covid safety restrictions but will be livestreamed over the internet by Drop The Puck and also followed on the Wild’s official Twitter feed.
The Widnes Wild Academy Under 15 team are taking on Solihull U15s in the Planet Ice Cup this Sunday 9th May at Planet Ice Widnes – 4.15pm face off.
The Planet Ice Cup games are being played under strict health and safety conditions as part of the English Ice Hockey Association’s “Return to Play” strategy. At present, no spectators are allowed into the venues to watch but that might change later in the summer as the Covid restrictions are gradually lifted.
