Two points stand for SC Riessersee after two games in the ice hockey league south.

Especially the white-blue special teams still have a lot of room for improvement.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen - There are only two games played in the ice hockey Oberliga Süd.

Accordingly, the table still says little, the same applies to the other statistics.

But still one point stands out at SC Riessersee: The special teams don't work.

The white-blue team had to cope with 16 penalty minutes in the games against Rosenheim and Memmingen. A value that can be seen in a league comparison. Only the Passauer (twelve minutes) and Lindauer (14) sat less time on the penalty bench. And yet the SCR shares last place with the EV Füssen in the outnumbered statistics. Both teams have already conceded four goals in a four-on-five. Even on the offensive, things are still not going well. Pat Cortina's team had eight chances to convert a superior number into a goal, only once against Rosenheim. In Memmingen, the Riesserseer played ten minutes more with one man on the ice. But that was seldom really visible. “When we were outnumbered, we acted better than against Rosenheim. But in power play we didn't create enoughwere unclean with the disc and too slow, ”complains Cortina.

I don't know the players well enough yet.

Therefore everyone gets their chance.

The explanation is as simple as it is plausible: Although the special teams are always part of the training, the focus is on the game with the full number of people.

“Outnumbered or outnumbered is not our biggest problem.

We're not good enough at five-on-five, ”emphasizes Cortina.

In addition, he is still looking for the ideal cast in the special teams.

“I don't know the players well enough yet.

Therefore everyone gets their chance. "

Objective lessons on how it can work in a minority were given on Sunday evening in Memmingen.

The Indians lead these statistics, have already survived twelve such situations unscathed and once - against the SCR - even used them to score their own goals.

Cortina is particularly worried about this point.

"That happens to us too often in the power play, it was the same in the test matches." The 57-year-old attributes this flaw less to the fact that he is still looking for formation, but rather to a lack of concentration.

We have too many unfocused moments in our game.

This point was also decisive for the entire performance against Memmingen. "We still have to work on that, we have too many unfocused moments in our game." One moment may also have surprised one or the other viewer. 15 seconds before the end, after Robin Soudek had reduced the game to 4: 5, it was not Florian Vollmer who played for the decisive play, but license player Elias Lindner - and lost the duel with Sergei Topol. The pane slipped straight into the empty SCR gate. The decision. So why this choice? “Elias had won a lot of faceoffs before.” But Cortina didn't see this as a problem either, before the fact that he had swapped goalie Daniel Allavena for a sixth field player. Yet it was an all-or-nothing situation.And this time the SCR just had to book nothing.

Enough of the negative.

The coach also saw a lot of what he liked, what he can build on and what he can work with.

And a very important factor that would otherwise be difficult to work on is morale.

“I have to praise the guys.

We never gave up and scored three goals in the final third. ”As against Rosenheim, the SCR fought their way back into the game, only this time there was no happy ending.
