Week 1 SHL News

On October 10th, 2019, the Sport Corner Siam Hockey League kicked off their 4th season.  

To start things off, we had the opening ceremony, where the president of the league said a few words, introduced out sponsors and had a skills test for our sponsors.

In our first game of the night at 8:30 we had Novotel Spitfires going head to head with Hertz.  These teams were pretty evenly matched through out the game, and by the end of the second period, the Spitfires were ahead 2-1.  At the start of the second period, the Spitfires scored two quick goals to open things up, but Hertz fought back and brought it within one again.  With just over two minutes left in the game, Hertz pulled their netminder, Lance Parker, and tried desperately to tie things up, but with just seconds left in the game, Spitfires captain, Brad Wilson send the puck down the ice and to have it curve into the net to seal the win for the Novotel Spitfires.  Hertz did dominate the Spitfires in shots 42 to 25, but SHL rookie goalie, Yu Cheng Liao (Leo) stopped 39 of those 42 to shots which earned him the Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game.

Hertz’s Andy Brine weaves past AWARE’s Devin Michael. Both scored in the game.

The 2018-19 Siam Hockey League (SHL) season opened on Thursday October 11th to much fanfare, some guest VIPS and a huge AWARE cheering section. 

The first game of the night was a replay of the SHL championship last March which Hertz won by upsetting heavily-favoured AWARE 5-3 in a winner-take-all one-game final.       

The guest MC on the evening was DJ P.K. (Piyawat Kempetch) who introduced the three VIPs attending the opening night ceremony: Isaret Charithivat, from the CPN Group; Steve Lavender, of Sport Corner: and John Stevens, president of CanCham. The three participated in an accuracy shoot-out contest from center ice before the game began, which John Stevens won by hitting the orange traffic cone placed at the goal-line.
