Fife Falcons beat Coventry Blaze 2-0 to win the 2017 Ice Hockey UK Under-20s National Finals weekend in Dumfries.

Falcons netminder Andrew Little posted a 30-shot shutout to lead his side to victory in the final at the Dumfries Ice Bowl. Fife went ahead when Scott Jamieson put away a rebound at 13:09 after Garry Simpson's shot was saved.

After a scoreless second period, the Falcons secured victory in the third session when Chad Smith reacted first to loose puck after Aaron Robertson was denied.

It was a successful second visit to the U20 National Finals for Fife after losing in overtime in last year's final to Sheffield.

Fife head coach, Scott Plews, said: "Winning that final was an amazing feeling. "After last year's final defeat to Sheffield I immediately set my sights on winning this year's final.

"I shared this with my team from day one of the season.

"No matter who we played today they would have struggled to break us down.

"We never played our best today and that was down to the effort and attitude of a very hard-working Coventry side. Hats off to them all for never giving up.

"Myself, Robo and all the lads couldn't have asked for a better end to an amazing season."
