They had hoped for six points at the weekend in the Puckjäger camp in Dorfen, after the Ice Pirates' somewhat surprising 4:2 victory at EHC Waldkraiburg on Friday.

Dorfen – But the calculation didn't quite work out because they lost 6:7 after a penalty shoot-out at home to last-placed EC Pfaffenhofen on Sunday.

"I had warned that such games against a bottom-placed player are usually played in a pinch and require even more commitment than against better-placed opponents.

Now I'm very disappointed," grumbled ESC coach Franz Steer.

"I already suspected it and warned that I'm more afraid of Pfaffenhofen with only one point than of Waldkraiburg." And that's exactly what happened.

The Eishogs were highly motivated and were up 3-1 after 20 minutes.

The ice pirates, on the other hand, seemed completely unsettled and obviously needed a wake-up call.

Nevertheless, after the messed-up third, he walked through the dressing room without saying anything, reported Steer, "otherwise it would probably have torn me apart".

In some cases, however, he defended his team, because the players who had recently been down with the flu had "had problems at the back" in Waldkraiburg.

However, the bad passes and individual errors were incomprehensible to him.

"I told them umpteen times, these are the toughest games - you have to go in like it's a derby," Steer scolded.

He missed the necessary fore and back checking, the necessary bite in the duels and ultimately also a higher speed.

"I can't look into the heads of the players to what extent they were broken after the difficult game in Waldkraiburg," explained the ESC coach.

"But if I can't run the way I want, then I have to hold my position and play faster."

A stone fell from the heart of the plagued Pfaffenhofen coach Petr Fical.

He is happy that his team scored seven goals and clinched their first win in a dramatic game.

However, six goals conceded would be something to consider and you have to work on it.

Steer had certified his team's tactically good and fighting performance on Friday after the 4:2 in Waldkraiburg.

The boys emerged from the 7-2 derby defeat against Erding with a visibly strengthened will.

After the return of the players who had had the flu last week and only two training sessions, his team would have had problems in the middle section after a balanced first third.

With a strong goalkeeper Andreas Marek behind them, the boys took matters into their own hands and did well, praised the ESC coach.
