Almost like Christmas Eve: The SC Riessersee and the Blue Devils Weiden exchange many gifts in the game of the ice hockey Oberliga Süd.
The SCR knows how to make better use of the opponent's mistakes and wins 4: 3.
Everyone likes to get presents.
A gesture of gratitude, of attention.
Who does not like it?
In sport, however, gifts are of a different, opposite nature.
The reason is not attention, but inattention.
In the game of the ice hockey league between the SC Riessersee and the Blue Devils Weiden you felt like you were reminded of Christmas Eve.
In the end, the SCR bagged the most valuable gifts.
Three points thanks to the 4: 3 success.
Exchange of various "niceties"
Before both teams started giving presents, they first sniffed and got to know each other.
Not always in the nice way.
SCR striker Benjamin Kronawitter had a small skirmish early on in the game with Weiden's Jakob Raul.
It wasn't the only difference of opinion that evening.
Tom Horschel received a punch in the stomach from guest actor Dennis Palka, Bastian Eckl also got up close with the sociable Raul and Eetu-Ville Arkiomaa and Barry Noe exchanged fists.
But they also played, and the first gifts were quickly handed over.
Kronawitter lost the puck in the build-up, but Weiden did not get the loop open.
The pane cracked and slipped past the gate.
A little later, the SCR was in double majority for 24 seconds, more than one shot by Robin Soudek directly at the Devils goalie did not jump out.
Although no siren sounded at the Olympic Ice Sports Center at the end of the first third, the referees kept an eye on the clock - the final whistle.
SCR turns the game
Section number two started with a good chance for willows.
But goalie Daniel Allavena continues to present himself as reliable support.
In this phase the hosts were offensively haphazard.
In minute 29 there was a chance to counterattack, but it fizzled out, and the Devils responded with the 0: 1.
That changed little in the course of the game, further slight advantages for the SCR.
Uli Maurer used this to make it 1: 1.
At 2: 1, Eckl had few problems opening Weiden's present.
The guests blocked themselves in defensive work, and the target fell at Eckl's feet.
The fact that the lead remained until the end of the third was thanks to Allavena, who parried well with a shot from Philipp Siller.
Bastian Eckl scores three goals
At the beginning of the final round, Silvan Heiß had a big present ready for the Weidener.
Bad pass directly into the run of Martin Heinisch, who was thievingly happy about the 2-2.
A little later, Simon Mayr had the puck chased away, which was like a handover without a fight.
But again Allavena missed the joy of the present for the guests.
The 3: 2 of the SCR was a strong goal.
Vollmer on Soudek, on to Eckl.
He allowed himself the time available and looked at Weiden's goalie.
The licensing player wasn't finished yet.
The 4: 2 was also on his cap.
But one gift was still left and was presented by Mayr: Bad pass behind his own goal, pass into the back area, connection goal.
The tremor began and was increased again by Tobias Möller's penalty time two minutes before the end.
But there was nothing under the tree anymore, the SCR got three points.
