EIHA Trophy Weekend Preview!

By Queen Bees Editor

Bracknell Queen Bees are in Widnes this weekend, looking to retain the Bill Britton Trophy at EIHA's Women's Trophy Weekend.

Whilst it is summer break for most hockey teams in the country, The Bracknell Queen Bees and thirteen other teams head to Planet Ice Widnes for Trophy Weekend, where they will battle it out for four national titles across the Elite, Premier, Division One and U16 Girls Leagues.

Many of us are familiar with going to Ice Sheffield for Women's Trophy Weekend, unfortunately due to a clash with an U9 Tournament, the Women's Event has been moved from it's usual host location of Ice Sheffield to Planet Ice Widnes.

Saturday’s programme sees semi finals for the three senior divisions – Elite, Premier and Division 1. The respective winners take their place in the Finals on Sunday, where there is also the U16 Girls Final on the schedule.

In the Elite League, Bracknell Queen Bees will face Guildford Lightning at 2.30PM in the first semi final. The second elite semi final will be Solihull Vixens vs. Kingston Diamonds at 8.30PM that evening.

The winners of both the Elite semi finals will meet on the Sunday for the pinnacle of the Trophy Weekend, at 5pm, with the winner claiming the Bill Britton Trophy.

Last year, in the 17/18 season, the Queen Bees beat Solihull Vixens in the final by a scoreline of 7-1 to reclaim the Bill Britton Trophy, after falling short the year before to them.
