Lee Valley Lions 3 Peterborough Islanders 5
Man of the match Joe Berry was powerless to prevent the Lions’ sixth straight defeat of the season at Lee Valley Ice Centre on Saturday.
Trailing 2-0 after the first period, Lions pulled a goal back when Scott Beeson set up Richard Hodge.
Adam Peach then levelled for the home side, finishing off a pass from Berry.
But chances of a first National League South Two point of the season evaporated after half-time, as Peterborough scored twice in the third period.
Phil Carson reduced the deficit once more for Lions.
But the points were sealed when the Islanders notched a fifth, beating net-minder Aaron Mallet, who faced 48 shots in the match.
