Lions Hand Chelmsford Victory in Late Flourish
The pride of East London took another late blow as the Lions squandered a 4-3 lead in the final four minutes, giving the win to an under strength Warriors side. Strong performances from Theo Abban (2+0) and Max Gerstein (0+1) gave the home side the advantage and for most of the match, the Lions dominated possession. However, a late 2-on-1 and powerplay goals killed the game off, Abban forcing a late save from opposing netminder Adam Young couldn’t salvage a draw.
