EPL round-up: Lightning secure Coventry spot

MK Lightning booked their place in the EPL play-off semi-finals with a 6-4 victory at Swindon Wildcats on Wednesday.

Jordan Cownie (2) and Blaz Emersic (2) topped the scoring for Lightning who are yet to be defeated in Group A.

Basingstoke Bison are in pole position to join Lightning at Coventry after securing a 4-2 success at Hull Pirates – Derek Roehl weighed in with a couple of goals.

Bison need just a point from their remaining two games to guarantee qualification.

Telford Tigers boosted their hopes of reaching the final four with a 3-2 overtime victory at Guildford Flames – Danny Rose bagged the winner.

Peterborough Phantoms eased to a 6-2 success at Sheffield Steeldogs.

The Flames and Tigers look likely to qualify from Group B, although the Phantoms can still force their way into the top two if other results go their way.


Guildford Flames 2-3 Telford Tigers (OT)
