Army Thrash RAF In Ice Hockey Inter Services Championships

After the Navy's win on the opening day, the RAF made it two losses from two on day two.

The Army Ice Hockey team are on course for a record-setting seventh successive Inter Services title.

They thrashed the RAF team 18-1 in Sheffield to start their tournament with a win.

It was the second night that the RAF suffered a heavy loss after losing to the Navy 11-3 in the first game.

They led 5-0 by the end of period 1 before adding 8 goals in the second period.

The RAF’s only score came from a penalty goal from their captain Richard Gray, but a 13-1 scoreline with just a period to go meant the game was already over.

Timo Lindgren and Josh Moreley, who was awarded man-of-the-match, helped the Army to five more goals to confirm the 18-1 demolition.

The results have set up the Army vs. Navy as a deciding game in match three.
