The Broncos will try to push the best-of-three series to a decisive third game when the two teams reconvene Saturday afternoon at 4 oâ€™clock.

But thanks largely to the play of sophomore goalie Chris Leclaire and his 28 stunning saves, the Lions survived with a 3-2 verdict over Prout in the initial game of this best-of-three R.I. Division II Tournament championship series at Brown University's Meehan Auditorium.
