Dorfen - Despite the great struggle, it was not enough.
3: 6 (1: 2, 1: 1, 1: 3) lost to ESC Dorfen on Friday evening to ESC Geretsried.
What a comeback for Geretsried's Ondrej Horvath after his injury break.
After 28 seconds he punished the unsorted Dorfen defense with the 1-0 for his River Rats.
The guests determined the direction for the next few minutes.
Dorfen's goalkeeper Andreas Marek had his hands full ironing out the mistakes and especially puck losses of his front men.
He was lucky when Bernhard Jorde only hit the post of his sanctuary after five minutes.
In the 8th minute, Sandro Schroepfer punished the Geretsrieder chances usury after a great interaction with Urban Sodja to make it 1: 1.
Tomas Vrba failed after a very strong forechecking by Martin Morczinietz in the guest goal.
Dorfen was now in the game, and a penalty was survived.
Great, as David Hrazdira and Schroepfer put on for Bastian Rosenkranz, who failed because of Morczinietz.
Bad luck for goalie Marek when he wanted to throw himself on the puck, but it flooded through.
So Klaus Berger had no trouble dusting off.
Again bad luck for the ice pirates when the puck landed in the River Rats' network a fraction of a second after the first third was over.
The ice pirates had to survive tricky situations for a long time after the restart, but goalie Marek surpassed himself.
Another sentence was ironed out.
Then after 34 minutes Rosenkranz chased a Hradzira pass into the mesh to make it 2-2.
However, Ondrej Horvath made the ice pirates very troubled.
Less than two minutes after the equalizer, everything went too fast, and the 29-year-old Czech took care of the Geretsried break lead.
Back again, the ice pirates took command.
During the assault to the 3: 3 equalizer, Sodja could not be stopped by anything or anyone.
16 seconds later, Schroepfer despaired with a thick shot at the artistically defensive Morczinietz.
Goals that you don't score in the front, you get in the back, like Jakob Heigl's another opening goal for the River Rats.
In only the fourth penalty time against Dorfen, the goal post saved against Heigl before Benedikt May made it 5: 3.
The ice pirates, who had been fighting for a long time, had to swallow the sixth goal conceded by Daniel Merl.
