2-0 down after the first, the Lions pulled goals back in the second though Richard Hodge – assisted by Scott Beeson – and Adam Peach from a pass by Joe Berry. The Islanders went ahead again at the start of the third and made it 4-2 shortly after. Phil Carson shot in number three for Lions but Islanders scored a fifth to take the points. Aaron Mallet was once again busy in the Lions net facing 48 shots. Joe Berry was MOM.
