2008-09 Tier 2 Power Rankings

Northumbria Kings

1 - Northumbria Kings Up 4

W: 9D: 0L: 1GF: 164GA: 27GD: +137PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Shreeve (61) G: Hewitt (42) A: Shreeve (35) SAV%: Anderson (0.87)
Northumbria Kings
The Flames must believe they cannot be extinguished and will retain their Title. Who can blame them when your top enforcer is returning from injury, you have a farmer and even a man named Jesus who will literally be walking on water.
Manchester Metros

2 - Manchester Metros Up 1

W: 7D: 1L: 1GF: 90GA: 20GD: +70PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Holder (21) G: Holder (14) A: Yarwood (8) SAV%: Griffiths (0.95)
Manchester Metros
Undefeated this season until the Playoff Semis, where Del's Metrostars were sensationally derailed by the Flames. Can their motor mouth President inspire his team back on track to Nationals' Glory??
Imperial Devils

3 - Imperial Devils Up 10

W: 6D: 1L: 2GF: 48GA: 23GD: +25PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Koch (10) G: Koch (8) A: Perlmutter (4) SAV%: Cattell (0.91)
Imperial Devils
The Yo Yo effect of the Devils continues, they actually are quite good this year. Cheated out of being Tier 2 South Champions but proved a point in the Playoff game by dumping out the Red Hawks. Can they carry on the run and beat Northumbria in the Div 2 playoffs and get a run in this competition too?
Cardiff Redhawks

4 - Cardiff Redhawks Non Mover

W: 6D: 1L: 3GF: 49GA: 32GD: +17PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Hayman (17) G: Hayman (11) A: Hayman (6) SAV%: Beer (1.00)
Cardiff Redhawks
Div 2 South Winners but will have to turn over Imperial in the group stages. Something they have yet to do this season. You never know what you are going to get with the Red Hawks.
Sheffield Bears B

5 - Sheffield Bears B Down 4

W: 5D: 0L: 3GF: 46GA: 25GD: +21PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Jinn (18) G: Jinn (11) A: Jinn (7) SAV%: Zeller (0.93)
Sheffield Bears B
Could come back with a vengeance after not making the Playoffs by a single point. But hey, its alright, as we didn't have to go to Whitley this year - so we can't blame that anymore.
Bradford Sabres

6 - Bradford Sabres Up 4

W: 4D: 1L: 3GF: 50GA: 51GD: -1PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Whittleston (31) G: Whittleston (18) A: Whittleston (13) SAV%: Wilson (0.82)
Bradford Sabres
Welcome back to the BUIHA Jan. The Czech ace returns after two years away and all of a sudden the Sabres start to win games again. He is only one player, but he is a machine.
Hull Ice Hogs

7 - Hull Ice Hogs Up 4

W: 4D: 1L: 3GF: 73GA: 106GD: -33PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Harley (27) G: Holland (17) A: Harley (12) SAV%: Abdul-Basith (0.78)
Hull Ice Hogs
Change of Name, Change of Colours, Change of Attitude. The once named Hawks come back this year as mean as ever! They are the only side to beat Northumbria A this season, something that even Division 1 Newcastle couldn't do!! Watch out for the Hogs.
Nottingham Mavericks B

8 - Nottingham Mavericks B Down 6

W: 3D: 1L: 4GF: 28GA: 24GD: +4PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Anderson (9) G: Anderson (6) A: Anderson (3) SAV%: Cantle (0.91)
Nottingham Mavericks B
Could the Mavs B's really be showing the crumbling dynasty that was once the Mavericks? Inconsistent season all round, can't see the Mavs battling it into the Semis.
Newcastle Wildcats B

9 - Newcastle Wildcats B Non Mover

W: 3D: 0L: 5GF: 54GA: 41GD: +13PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Fletcher (15) G: Fletcher (9) A: Dziurla (8) SAV%: Shah (0.89)
Newcastle Wildcats B
Swapping the Majestic American Haggis Perks up to the A's for the Cannon, Sam Pay, seems to have worked well for the second half of the season for Newcastle B. The only other team in Div 2 North other than Northumbria to have Positive goal difference, could Ash 'Love Boat' Shah make the difference for the run in??
Birmingham Lions

10 - Birmingham Lions Down 4

W: 1D: 0L: 7GF: 15GA: 70GD: -55PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Pattison (6) G: Pattison (5) A: Skinner (4) SAV%: Sutton (0.76)
Birmingham Lions
The Eagles are the best team for playing within the rules, inconsistent in the Cup, but welcome back a multitude of Alumni Players for Nationals! You just never rule out Birmingham B in a weekend Competition.
London Dragons B

11 - London Dragons B Down 4

W: 2D: 0L: 6GF: 26GA: 36GD: -10PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Nystrom (5) G: Nystrom (4) A: Zhu (4) SAV%: Bethune (0.97)
London Dragons B
Losing their goalie to the 1st team is never going to help matters when it comes to a competition like this. In a tough group too, the Dragons are going to find it hard to get anywhere this year, just like the 1st team - they to may be out of puff.
Huddersfield Ice Hawks

12 - Huddersfield Ice Hawks Non Mover

W: 1D: 1L: 6GF: 22GA: 105GD: -83PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Volgin (12) G: Vickers (7) A: Volgin (7) SAV%: Hawe (0.76)
Huddersfield Ice Hawks
Significant improvements brought on by Coach Beavers this season, even though at one point he was partially blinded by an infection. getting a draw away at Birmingham just shows you can never rule a team out.
Oxford Vikings

13 - Oxford Vikings Down 5

W: 1D: 0L: 7GF: 13GA: 48GD: -35PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Pettersson (4) G: Pettersson (3) A: Bradbury (2) SAV%: Peterson (0.88)
Oxford Vikings
Two years ago this team won the Nationals. What happened after that? Unlikely to reinvigorate that sleeping Giant, the Vikings are likely to just sail off into the night unnoticed.
Northumbria Kings B

14 - Northumbria Kings B New Entry

W: 1D: 0L: 7GF: 39GA: 150GD: -111PP%: 0.0PK%: 0.0
Pts: Worrell (13) G: Worrell (8) A: Cooney (6) SAV%: Rogers (0.86)
Northumbria Kings B
Making the step up from Division 3, the Flames B have taken a battering this year. But on a positive note they claim to be the best looking side in Division Two, they even have a professional Model in their team. Watch out! Don't check Mr Jeffs - you might damage his hair.
