Three games, zero points: But at ESC Dorfen you don't panic.

Dorfen - Actually, the ESC puck hunters brought a compact, if not the best season performance so far, on the ice in the only weekend game against EHC Klostersee on Friday.

Still, they ended up with empty hands.

After the 0: 1 up to the second break, the spectators could expect a close result. In the end, however, it was a 1: 6 defeat with three hits from Raphael Kaefer from the 54th minute. Too high compared to the course of the game, as ESC head coach Franz Steer emphasized in the press conference. "We played through two thirds of what we wanted, only to fall behind for the first time through an unnecessary cross pass." Even experienced professionals in the NHL, according to Steer, "knock the disc out of the toughest situations, then there's icing, what happens then? ”In terms of shots on goal, his team had been at eye level for a long time,“ but we just didn't bring our chances in ”. His squad must be more constant over three thirds, said Steer. "And then, at 0: 2,two of our players lose the disc on the boards outside. "

The ice pirate coach named flu problems as an important reason for deviating from the course in the final phase. A few players hadn't been able to train in the past week, “they literally came on their gums. Quite apart from the fact that we cannot replace Tomas Vrba, captain Christian Göttlicher or our long-term injured Gasper Susanj, who is a bank on the defensive ”. There is hope of a speedy return at Vrba, said Steer.

“The audience wonders where are our foreigners who can or must decide a game,” said the ESC trainer.

He defended the remaining foreigner Urban Sodja.

His game is beneficial to the team, "he works his way out, and at some point the knot will also burst with him in the end".

Incidentally, the season is not a hundred meter run.

"This is a marathon, and we can't afford to burn the players out," he emphasized.

Besides, he doesn't need a foreigner who only plays for himself.

“We'll train hard on Tuesday.

I will build up the young team again, even if we are still lagging behind, but I am sure that we are on the right track, ”said Steer.

Klostersee coach Dominik Quinlan confirmed that his team had difficulties getting into the game, not least because “the ice pirates played with their hearts”.

In the first and second thirds, goalkeeper Philipp Hähl prevented a possible deficit with a top performance.

"When we switched from the beautiful game to the simple, fast game over the boards, we came to success," said Quinlan.

"In the end, the quality of a Raphael Kaefer who scored three goals in the last four minutes brought us an undisputed victory."
