That will give a big hello: three people from the opponent from Weiden have a Peitinger past.
- The first games in this young year and the first of many more English weeks in the Oberliga Süd ran as desired at EC Peiting.
With nine points and 14: 1 goals in three games, coach Sebastian Buchwieser's team has worked its way up the table.
If you apply the quotient rule that has now been agreed, the ECP is already in sixth place, which is enough for direct entry into the play-offs.
“That looks pretty good,” says the satisfied-looking Buchwieser.
Ice hockey: Weiden is trained by the ex-Peitinger Ken Latta
Peiting's coach hopes, however, that the slide rule will not even be used when creating tables.
“We currently have the fewest games in the league, but I'm in good spirits that we can play all the games and don't need the quotient rule,” said Buchwieser, who will play the Blue Devils Weiden with his team this Friday for the third home game in a row expected.
"A well-rehearsed team with strong foreigners who have recently strengthened themselves again in a prominent way," said Buchwieser's assessment of the bottom of the table, who will travel with numerous former Peitingers.
First and foremost coach Ken Latta, who has spent many years at ECP, as well as his son Louis Latta and Marco Habermann, who are swirling in the Upper Palatinate.
“It will be a tough nut to crack,” says Buchwieser, expecting anything but a walk.
Ice hockey: EC Peiting has already lost twice this season against Riessersee
The same applies to the guest appearance on Sunday at SC Riessersee, which was strengthened with three new players a week ago.
“They want to know again,” says Buchwieser of his old club, against which the ECP still has to make up for after the two defeats this season.
“But it won't be easy.
Riessersee has a good mix of young and old, ”is the assessment of Buchwieser, who can draw on almost unlimited resources.
Ice hockey: Sinan Ondörtoglu at Peiting not yet in the squad
Newcomer Sinan Ondörtoglu, who has moved from TSV Peißenberg to Peiting, is not yet in the squad.
“He's only been on the ice for a few days.
He has not yet trained with us either, because he is still in Markus Gleich's perspective squad, ”reports Buchwieser.
Another young player, the second goalkeeper Elias Fischbacher, also has to wait for an appearance.
"Elias works hard in training, he still gets his chance," says the ECP coach with certainty.
that he can rely on his regular goal Florian Hechenrieder, who is in top form.
Only one goal conceded in the last three games is currently not a single goalkeeper in the league.
The next English weeks can safely come.
