British Army Blades win 2022 Inter Services Ice Hockey title

The British Army Blades have won the 2022 Inter Services Ice Hockey Championship.

A 6-0 win over the RAF Aces confirmed their triumph in Sheffield after beating the Royal Navy destroyers earlier in the week.

The Aces, who won last year's tournament, had a torrid week after losing 9-0 to the Destroyers in their first match.

In the match between the Army and the RAF, all the goals came in the first and final periods.

The Blades raced into a 3-0 lead inside fifteen minutes and scored their final three goals, including a superb solo strike from Timo Linderen, in the final 20 minutes.

The tournament was held at IceSheffield alongside the tri-service tournament pitting multiple teams from all three services against each other.
