Parry joy as Tigers NIHL complete Welsh double

Tigers NIHL assistant coach chief Jason Parry believes there is more to come from his side, following Saturday’s 4-2 win over Deeside Dragons.

A brace of early goals put Telford in control after just seven minutes in Flintshire, as they continue to prepare for the Moralee Conference season.

And despite two later strikes from the hosts, Parry’s men went on to record a second win over Deeside in just seven days.

He said: “It started well and their imports put us under a bit of pressure, but we still played some really good hockey. It is early days for both teams.

“Of course, there are areas where we can improve, but the important thing is that we focus on the positives. We need to keep moving forward in pre-season.”

Philip Mulcachy was first on the scoresheet for Telford after just six minutes, before a strike from James Smith just moments later.

Deeside hit back through Adrian Palak at the start of the second period, although the visitors secured victory later on with goals from Callum Bowley and Brad Betteridge. That was despite a late consolation goal from Deeside’s Filip Supa

Parry added: “We had some new guys in the side this week, so we’ve tinkered with the lines a little bit. Some of them worked and some didn’t.

“We scored from all three lines, which shows we’ve got good depth. The important thing at this stage is to keep improving in the areas where we are doing well, as well as the areas where we didn’t do too well.”

The Tigers NIHL return to action on Sunday evening, when they travel to face Solihull Barons (6pm).
