Sheffield matched Wanderers blow for blow after scoring three quick goals in the second period to go from 9-6 down to 9-9. The game progressed to 13-13 at the start of the last, then 15-15 when Sheffield’s Corran Bradley fired an equaliser from a penalty with 19 seconds remaining. It was Ceri Griffiths who held his nerve to net the last-ditch winner.
