Lions pulled apart by Peterborough

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.
