Understrength Lee Valley Lions were shutout by Peterborough Islanders in their latest National League cup outing.

Beaten 5-2 at home by Swindon in their first match in the competition, Lions travelled with just 12 skaters and goalie James Andrew to take on strongly fancied hosts.

And they worked hard to foil Peterborough until the final minute of the opening period, when Nathan Pollard finally found a way past James Andrew.

Islanders doubled their advantage just before the midway mark through Mitchell White, before Lee Valley’s James Jospeh was called for interference.

The home side capitalised on the powerplay just 23 seconds later, thanks to Conor Pollard, and made it 4-0 less than a minute later as Clint Herring also found a way past Andrew.

Conor Pollard then grabbed his second goal of the night, making it four in just under eight minutes for Peterborough.

But Lions dug in to deny them any further goals in the final period, when Simon Geldart dropped the gloves to fight Connor Stokes, despite being outshot 43-29 overall.

Andrew took the Lee Valley man of the match award and Lions return to their own ice to host Haringey Racers in a London derby on Sunday evening (5.30pm).

Scorers, Peterborough: Conor Pollard 2+1 Clint Herring 1 Nathan Pollard 1 Mitchell White 1 Shaun Yardley 0+4 Connor Stokes 0+2 Robert McDonald 0+1 Callum Worthington-Evans 0+1.

Penalty minutes: Peterborough 14 Lions 16.

Shots faced: Dan Lane (P) 9-10-10=29 James Andrew (LW) 14-12-17=43.
