20180407 - Deano Saves the Day

97 / 365

Well then.
After literally falling sleep during the first play-off semi-final (sorry Telford/Peterborough, but it was really boring), we endured one of those "there's the easy way, the hard way and the Bison way" games.
Sheffield Steeldogs had six more players and played a hard game. It was 0-0 after the first, 1-1 after the second (with Steeldogs scoring first). I thought the extra legs might give Steeldogs the edge in the third, but our captain, Aaron Connolly came good and made it 2-1. Bison defended a one goal lead for 12 mins, including good old Deano saving the penalty shot above (which Bison being Bison conceded on the power play).
Captain Connolly completed his hat-trick with an empty net goal at 59.34.
Now they have to do it all again tomorrow against Telford. Fingers crossed!
