Invicta Dynamos bowed out the NIHL Southern play-offs after losing both legs of the semi-final clash against Wightlink Raiders.
Mos lost 7-5 on aggregate following the 4-3 defeat on the Isle of Wight on Saturday night and the 3-2 loss in Gillingham on Sunday.
Invicta had looked set to make playing on home ice advantage count in the second leg after leading 2-0 at the end of the first period.
Nicky Lewis opened the scoring in the 13th minute to level the tie on aggregate before Daniel Hammond (17.26) put Mos ahead.
But the visitors, who finished the regular season second in Division 1 South – a place above the Dynamos – scored the only goal of the second period to get back on level terms on aggregate.
It meant after 100 minutes of hockey over two legs it all came down to the final 20 minutes.
And it was the Raiders who settled the issue, scoring twice in four minutes to end Invicta’s season.
Mos had also led the first leg after the home side had opened the scoring.
Juraji Huska made it 1-1 before Hammond scored the first of his two on the night.
Raiders levelled just before the break and took the lead in the third period before Hammond equalised.
That was the way it stayed until less than five minutes to go when Raiders scored to take a one-goal lead into the second leg.
The Raiders will play champions Chelmsford Chieftains Chelmsford – who beat Streatham 12-2 on aggregate – in the final.
