Barracudas to check out Sharks

The Sharks hope to continue their lethal form on the rink in 2014. 

The Caribbean Creations Ball Hockey League goes into round 14 of the regular season on Thursday, Jan. 23, at Kings Sports Center. The Deloitte Devil Rays face the Pirates at 8 p.m., and the Barracudas face the Sharks at 9 p.m. 

Heading into this week, Steven Taylor and the Sharks are 9-1-1 atop the league. The Barracudas, 5-1-7, are second ahead of the 4-2-6 Pirates, with Deloitte, the reigning champions, in the cellar at 3-2-7. The Cudas have had a mediocre start to the year as a 5-2 win over Dan Florek and the Devil Rays was followed by a 2-0 defeat to Marty Tammemagi and the Pirates. 

Almost all of the statistics favor the Sharks as they sport the best offense (scoring a league-high 69 goals) and the toughest defense (surrendering a league-low 24 goals). Brad De Schiffert paces the frontrunners with 18 goals (tops in the competition) and nine assists (which is second-most). 

Local hockey fans can also catch action in the adult spring 2014 inline league. The Cayman Hot Sauce Flames will look to defend their Cherry Cup trophy against the Mepco High Rollers, Deloitte Sharks and the newly formed ITS Solar Bears. 


The Pirates rely on talents like Marty Tammemagi.
