Lions suffered their worst defeat of the season and remain at the foot of the table, after their heavy away defeat.

The fast-skating Jets, lead by Zoran Kozic, who was involved in 12 of the home side’s goals, tore into Lee Valley and were on the scoreboard after just 19 seconds.

Although Lions fought back with Richard Hodge hitting the bar shortly after the Slough opener, the Jets added two more, before a pass from Michael Crosse found Hodge skating in alone to open the Lions’ account.

The Jets led 4-1 by the end of the first period and 9-3 after two, with the Lions goals coming from Jordan Jones – his first for the club – and Scott Beeson, both goals set up by man of the match Joe Berry.

Beeson added his second in the final period, but a Lions side, already without captain James Hatfull, also lost James Gosling to a 10-minute misconduct penalty and Jack Ball to a groin injury to end the game desperately short on defence.

 The search continues for an ‘import’ player to join Lee Valley.

League rules allow one foreign-trained player per club, but Lions have been icing a fully British line-up since Romanas Fedotovas quit the club for rivals Romford Fury.

 Lions face Invicta Mustangs at Lee Valley Ice Centre on Saturday at 5.15pm in a game that was originally scheduled for Sunday.
