unbelievable NIHL National Cup finalist Leeds Knights defeats Hull Seahawks 5 (agg: 4-9): Matty Davies praises the.

After Hull had won the first meeting on home ice 4-3 two nights prior, the anticipated pushback from Leeds never really materialized in the second leg of the semi-final tie at Elland Road Ice Arena on Friday night.

The Seahawks had already triumphed in Leeds soon before Christmas, taking an outstanding 4-2 league victory.

However, their 5-1 victory over Ryan Aldridge’s squad was exceptional and well-earned, as Leeds had no disagreements with the 9-4 overall score.

The Knights, who finished the game in second place overall, now need to be ready for another home game against the Raiders IHC on Saturday night.

The Seahawks, on the other hand, will have to wait until next Thursday to find out who they will face in the two-leg championship match between the Milton Keynes Lightning and Swindon Wildcats, two clubs they have already defeated.

The Knights were behind early on in the first period thanks to goals from Lee Bonner with a deflection in front on a power play at 16:46 and Brock Bartholomew, who jammed the puck home with just 77 seconds remaining. They were in a dire circumstance that they were never able to escape.
