Slough beaten in Under-14 final

Romford Hurricanes have made club history by lifting the national under-14 title in Sheffield today.

Lenny Cole’s side beat rivals Slough 6-3 to become Romford’s first-ever national champions.

Jake Sylvester gave them a first-period lead and further goals from Toms Rutkis, Brandon Ayliffe and Glenn Billing put Hurricanes 4-0 up.

Slough hit back with a brace, before Ayliffe’s second goal of the game made it 5-2.

But a third Slough goal set up a tense closing five minutes before they pulled their goalie for an extra skater and saw Hurricanes score a sixth into the empty net with 15 seconds left on the clock.

Hurricanes had booked their place in the final with a 9-1 win over Nottingham yesterday and finish the season unbeaten.

Romford Raptors finished as the fourth best under-12 team in the country after losing their play-off against Nottingham, 6-1.
