In the third preparation game, SC Riessersee achieved their first victory in a 5-2 win against Starbulls Rosenheim.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen - If you went after the police presence, this derby should have been considered a high-risk game.
In any case, numerous officials positioned themselves behind the two fan camps, each of which had been directed into the corners of the opposite grandstands.
The increased presence did not exactly meet with sympathy among the supporters.
On the one hand, nobody has forgotten what was going on in those ice hockey league duels between SC Riessersee and Rosenheim, on the other hand, both teams will meet on October 7th in the opening game.
A little symbolism had to be in advance.
If the derby at the start of the season is as peaceful as it is successful as this test, of course nobody has anything against it - with the exception of Rosenheim.
The Riesserseer won 5: 2 and earned two days off from coach Pat Cortina.
Hard training week is behind the white-blue
The coach spoke of "a long week". The professionals had trained for seven days in a row. Cortina administered his ice hockey plan in nine sessions. After this decent dose, including the game, he says: “You can see the progress.” From a global perspective, he was concerned with the attitude. As against Bad Tölz, the Werdenfels team had only 14 field players. In the short term it doesn't matter, but after such a crisp week this game was a matter of character and strength. “We had a very good work ethic and a lot of will,” the coach recognizes. In the first third even too much. The SCR allowed itself three penalty times in unfavorable situations and - unintentionally, of course - continued the game in Tölz. “We'll take care of it,” promises the trainer.So that this trend doesn't become a bad habit - like in the preseason. Cortina says: “Better to have a little more energy than too little.” It's just a good thing that the people of Rosenheim weren't particularly resourceful and left all the overpowering situations (five of them) unused.
Felix Linden sets the end point from 60 meters
Yes, the effectiveness made the difference. After section one it was 1: 1 after goals, but 13: 2 after shots per Rosenheim. And the goal of the guests was scored by the SCR, respectively his goalkeeper Daniel Allavena, who walked off the ice a little later with a defective skate, but returned after three minutes. For the rest it was a balanced and entertaining game. Cortina liked the passing game, which was a factor especially in the goals for 2: 1 (Anton Radu) and 3: 2 (Florian Vollmer). Both hits fell in the slot, right in front of the gate. The SCR also used the power play twice - with Nicolas Appendino's 2: 1 and 4: 2. Felix Linden's 60-meter flick into the empty goal was not only a nice finish, but also a symbol of the effective Riessersee.Coach Cortina also observed better work on the defensive. “We were more compact.” This was how the staff deficit could be compensated. “In the medium and long term, however, 14 is not enough.” That is why we now have more breaks than usual. Cortina says: "Rest is a weapon."
