Game four of the Mann Cup Championships at The Q Centre Tuesday night ended with the Peterborough Lakers making a series of it, by winning this important game 8-6 over the Victoria Shamrocks. Ironically, this is the third year in a row during the Mann Cup finals, that the Shamrocks gave up a 2-1 series lead.
Game five goes tonight at 7:00 PM in a pivotal match for both teams. If Victoria wins it puts the pressure on the visitors (the entire series is played at The Q Centre) if the Lakers win, the Shamrocks will have even greater pressure on them to not make it three years in a row to lose the Mann Cup final. Game six is Friday night.
Peterborough kept coming back in game four. In fact, they came back five times in a row before finally taking the lead after 37-minutes of play. It was Curtis Dickson, while scoring four goals, gave the Lakers a two-goal lead.
Laker’s Mark Steenhuis said, “That’s a character win for us. Hat’s off to our defence during the third period.”
Brad Self added two goals for the Lakers including his final goal as an empty netter off of an errant pass by Shamrock player Jesse King.
King scored two goals himself and Rhys Duch, Gregg Harnett and Scott Ranger scored the reminder of the goals for the Shamrocks.
