The Erding Gladiators achieved their weekend target with three points.
Erding - The painful 8-2 home defeat on Friday against Schongau was followed by a 6-3 success in Buchloe on Sunday.
Schongau's coach Rainer Höfler was almost a bit embarrassed by the victory.
“If you score the goals at the right time, then things will just go in that direction,” he said modestly and was happy about a “historic start, because there have never been three victories at the start of the season in Schongau”.
On the other hand, his counterpart Thomas Vogl spoke of a "pitch black day", who apologized to the fans for the performance.
“I've never seen anything like it at home, and we'll try to make sure it never happens again.” It was “brutal mistakes”.
Above all, he annoyed him “that our last man lost the disc four or five times”.
Höfler said with a smile that he had noticed that the players who had lost the disc immediately looked reproachfully at the goalkeeper.
For Erding's coach, the performance was "collectively catastrophic".
He doesn't want to exclude anyone, "from the top striker to the goalkeeper".
In the second third break, he removed the mirror in his coaching cabin and held it up to each player individually so that everyone could see who was to blame.
When asked again about Lukas Miculka's sudden change, Vogl explained that it was "a slap in the face" for him personally and athletically. “That disappointed me on all levels. But in the end we don't need a player who is not with us with heart and head. ”Press spokesman David Whitney also regretted the departure,“ because he would have been the perfect workhorse ”. At the same time, he announced that there will be news about a new signing soon.
On Sunday, the Erdinger trainer's expression brightened up again, although the victory was only achieved with three goals in the last two minutes. "It was the tough game expected," said Vogl. “You shouldn't forget that Buchloe has one of the top ranks in the league with Petrak, Krafczyk and Brückner.” After the defeat on Friday, his team's self-confidence was of course cracked, “and to be able to play hockey offensively, you need self-confidence ".
Erding's gang leader particularly highlighted the U 20 players Erik Modlmayr and Thomas Baumann, who played three times over the weekend - on Saturday they were also on the ice in the U 20 derby against Dorfen.
“I take my hat off to the boys, they did a great job.” In the end, his team “made the right decisions”.
Vogl summarized: “It was a great team performance, we played a great system, everyone stuck to it.
I am glad that we took the three points with us. "
Vogl does not have this hope that the Gladiators roster will be significantly larger again this coming weekend.
“I don't think that one of the injured will come back, possibly the last sick,” he said, and so the motto of the week is “development work”.
