EPL round-up: Bison boost title hopes

Basingstoke Bison still lead the EPL after registering two hard fought victories.

Rene Jarolin (2) topped the scoring in Bison’s 3-2 home success against MK Lightning, and they followed up with a 4-3 win at Hull Pirates.

Sheffield Steeldogs bounced back from a 5-3 defeat against Lightning to record an unlikely victory on home ice against Guildford Flames.

Steeldogs trailed Flames 4-2 heading into the final minute, but Arnoldas Bosas grabbed his second and third goals of the night to send the game to overtime.

Bosas completed a remarkable turnaround in the second minute of the extra period with his fourth of the match to secure a 5-4 win.

Peterborough Phantoms won 4-1 at home to Bracknell Bees and they made it a four-point weekend with a stylish 5-2 victory at Telford Tigers.

Aaron Nell scored twice for Swindon Wildcats in their 3-1 home success against Telford, and he went one better with a hat-trick at Bracknell as Wildcats ran out 7-4 winners.

Manchester Phoenix lost 4-3 after overtime at Guildford, but they had better fortunes at home to Hull as they eased to a 3-0 victory.
