Basingstoke Bison star Stuart Mogg helps Southampton Spitfires to university title
STUART Mogg helped the Southampton Spitfires to become the British University Ice Hockey Association Tier One champions.
The 19-year-old student at Solent Univeristy was a member of the Basingstoke Bison double-winning side and was joined in the winning Southampton team by Basingstoke Buffalo's Kurt Tyrell, Telford Tigers’ Dan Davies and Wightlink Raiders’ trio Simon Hobbis, Richard Facey and Richard Nembhard.
For the start of the competition, the eight finalists were split into two groups of five, which saw the Spitfires face Scottish sides St Andrews Typhoons, Edinburgh Eagles, Notting-ham Mavericks and Manchester Metrostars.
The other group was made up of Sheffield Bears, Hull Hogs, Birmingham Lions, Cambridge Blues and London Dragons.
Southampton opened up with a 6-0 win against Manchester and then Mogg scored twice as they beat St Andrews 6-1.
The Spitfires completed a 100 per cent record in the group stage thanks to further wins over Edinburgh (4-1) and Nottingham (4-2), in which Mogg scored.
This qualified the team for the semi-finals, where they saw off the London Dragons 5-2, and they then met Edinburgh again in the final after the Scottish outfit beat Sheffield 2-1.
Southampton once again made easy work of the Eagles, winning 5-0 to take the trophy.
