Despite the sensation against leader Miesbach, ESC trainer Steer is not entirely happy - but he is very happy about the great performance of his team.
Dorfen – They are better than their current 13th place in the table. The Dorfener Eispiraten proved that in the 4:2 win against the leader TEV Miesbach.
Head coach Franz Steer was happy about the success, but suppressed his inner feelings.
"I don't really want to say anything," he said in the press conference, but then referred to the difficult situation.
“I thought I had experienced everything in ice hockey.
But what I am currently experiencing in Dorfen with constant failures and referees is incredible.
This time it was Sandro Schroepfer who crashed into the gang and injured his shoulder.
According to Steer, he will be out for the whole season.
Lukas Kirsch will also be out due to a five-plus game penalty.
"But if the referee had punished the foul with the facial injury from Kirsche beforehand," said Steer, the fight with TEV defender Stefan Mechel would not have happened at all.
The situation is frustrating after the failures, according to the ESC coach.
His announcement to the team was all the better, not because of him, but because of Schröpfer, which then brought the surprising success.
In addition to the great collective performance, Steer gave special praise to goalie Maximilian Engelbrecht and for his team's great game when they were outnumbered.
Obviously, the ESC goalie was in top form in the presence of his father and ex-international Bernie.
TEV coach Michael Baindl said they knew that Dorfen could be dangerous with a full squad, but that his elite men also seemed insecure in penalty-killing.
