It was a nervous start for both teams as they try to settle down in the test match with the All Blacks with ball in hand first up.
The Lions started the get ball in hand and they made some in rows in the All Blacks half but little knocks and forward passes stopped their progress.
The All Blacks got first opportunity to score points but Barrett first kick went against the upright.
With both team trading penalties, the big moment in the test came when Sonny Bill Williams was send off the field with a red card for a shoulder against a player head.
The referee had no other choice than giving him a red card as the law protect the players head. This gave the Lions a one-man advantage for the rest of the test.
Hansen then took Kaino off, and put Laumape on in midfield to get a centre pair in the rainy condition, it was a brave call to say the least.
The All Blacks kept the pressure on the Lions even with 14-men and the teams were only able to trade more penalties before halftime to have a 9-all sharing of the scoreboard.
The last part of the half the All Blacks made a big step-up to keep the Lions in tack.
The second half had it all as they two teams gave it all in Wellington and it was the All Blacks that took the lead with the one man down and kept the penalties coming.
They went into a lead that seems to have the Lions scrabbled for bits and pieces but also force them to make allot of mistakes.
The Lions got a blow early in second half when they got a yellow card which have been easily a red card with a shoulder to Barrett head but the French referee decided it is just a yellow card.
The Lions finally got things together to score the first of their two tries in the match. This seemed to make the turnaround for them as they started to dominate and hit the All Blacks back as well.
When the second try was scored they were level on 21 on the scoreboard with ten minutes to go.
Playing in the right areas of the field they forced an important penalty with a few minutes to go and took the lead 24-21.
Handling the pressure in that final minutes of the test they hold on and got the win to take the series to the final test to decide who will take this one.
The Lions showed great character and deserved the win leaving the All Blacks having to take the fact that they did not score a try and must do it all next week again to win the series.
