Big 4 point weekend for Lions Senior team.

Sunday saw the Lions senior team return to play in the BRHA West league and push for a B Nationals spot.

The 1st game saw the Lions take on the current A league leaders and last season’s Nationals runners-up Predators. Lions started off slow in this game where we found ourselves 9 – 1 down after the 1st period but the group of players pulled together and only conceded 3 goals in the 2nd and scored 4 as the game finished 12 – 5 to Predators.

The 2nd game saw an end-to-end game with the current team which holds the 3rd place in the league and one of the B National places.

This game against Leasowes Sharks saw the Lions take an early lead but Leasowes Sharks had a lot of fight in their game and managed to make it a 9 – 9 game with 5 minutes to go. The last 5 minutes could have gone anyway but the team managed to score another 3 goals and not concede any in this time to get a big 2 points and win the game 12 – 9.

We should have also had a game against the Slush Puppies but unfortunately, they could not put a team together and had to forfeit the game giving the Lions a 5 – 0 win.

It was a great game day for all of our players as this is the 1st time this team has played fully together this season with Callum also getting a goal on his 1st game day for the team.

Lions are back playing in the West League on 11th June where we take on Chappies Wrexham and Outcast.
