Ice Hockey: Blackburn Hawks Touching Tribute
The league leaders broke with the normal match protocol and wore their black away shirts for the evening as a mark of respect and the visiting team - Whitley Warriors - accommodated this by wearing their white "home" shirts. A book of remembrance was available for people to sign on the night and the Hawks extended their lead at the top of the table with a 9-4 victory.
