Sunday was a hard day for Senior Lions Team

Sunday saw the Lions Senior team back in the BRHA West league taking on the Outcast who were looking to take the top spot from Preditors and against our Friends but also B Nationals spot rivals Wrexham.

In the 1st game of the day, Lions played well and were holding Outcast in the 1st but you could tell the difference in experience between the two teams as they did not give our players any space and managed to limit how many shots got through to their keep. The game finished 18 – 1. This was not the result Lions were looking for but the players never gave up and gave everything they had in this game Outcast was just too strong and had a game plan that worked very well. Lions play outcast again in a few weeks and we will be looking to improve on that score 2nd time round.

Our 2nd game of the day saw Lions play Wrexham and having lost 2 games already to the teams fighting for a B Nationals spot this was a must-win game for them.

The game started off very even with both teams making chances and both netminders playing well and keeping the scores down but in the 2nd period Wrexham managed to get a grip of the game and took control of the game with Lions trying to find their feet and although the lads pushed in the last 5 minutes of the game when they managed to gain control of the puck the Werxham players and keeper stayed solid in defense and finished off the game with a big 10 – 2 win.

This weekend was not the results our players were looking for but we still have a good chance at finishing in a Nationals sport and still have sites on 3rd and the players are ready to regroup as we have 3 big games on 25th June where we play Cobras, Slush Puppies & Newport Knights.
