Zurich's top ice-hockey teams, Kloten Flyers and Zurich Lions, both celebrated wins in the fourth round of the play-off semi-finals to leave the fight for the final tantalisingly balanced.This content was published on March 22, 2002 - 09:41
Kloten defeated Davos 6-3 to level the overall score in the best-of-seven series at 2-2. The Lions are also on level terms with Lugano after beating their Ticinese rivals 2-1 in overtime on Thursday.
The star of Kloten's well-deserved victory was 17-year-old Romano Lemm. The young prodigy scored two goals, including the 5-3 which ended all hope for Davos.
Lemm was only brought in by the team's coach, Yurzinov, at the beginning of the playoffs but has since scored four times in nine matches.
The Zurich Lions owed their victory to Reto Stirnimann who scored the winning goal against Lugano with just one minute of overtime remaining. It was Stirnimann's second winning goal of the play-offs, following a similar strike against Ambri in the sixth round of the quarter-finals.
