Roller hockey players from Lynn closed in on their third consecutive title after the latest round of games in the National Rink League.

The team came from behind to record a 4-2 victory over London in their latest encounter.

It gives them an eight-point cushion over Soham with three matches to play.

After falling behind in their latest encounter, efforts from Michael Carter and a long-range strike from Jamie Griffin handed Lynn a deserved 2-1 lead going into the interval.

There were a flurry of chances at both ends at the start of the second period before Josh Taylor put Lynn further ahead after finding space mid-rink.

London reduced the arrears to set up an interesting final few minutes following a rare mix-up in the Lynn defence.

Using their possession well, Lynn sensed that London were beginning to tire.

A two-on-one break involving Ryan Barnes and man-of-the match Taylor saw the latter make it 4-2 late in the proceedings.

Lynn thank both the Samueljacks T-Shirt Shop and Cater Engineering for their continued support throughout the season.
