Big ice hockey surprise on Epiphany: After an outstanding performance against Deggendorfer SC, third in the Oberliga, EHC Klostersee scored a sensational, but well-deserved 4:3 after a penalty shoot-out.
Grafing – The personnel situation in the Red and Whites had eased at least a little with the return of strikers Marc Bosecker and Matthias Baumhackl.
Marinus Kritzenberger was also there – but not on the ice, but as “assistant” to commentator Willy Vollmayer at the microphone on SpradeTV.
The defender was suspended for two games (plus two on probation) after his too hearty expression of opinion towards the referee in the home game against Peiting.
As was the case most recently, the EHClers also had a strong start third against the guest from Lower Bavaria.
After 26 seconds, Bosecker tested the opposing goalie.
Former DEL keeper Timo Pielmeier saved Deggendorf from conceding a goal, especially in the final stages, when he prevented shots from being scored against Lynnden Pastachak, Philipp and Nicolai Quinlan.
Marinus Schunda between the EHC posts kept the overview several times when the DSC appeared dangerously in front of him and had the necessary luck when René Röthke shot the post (2nd).
He had no chance at 0:1 (3rd) when Canadian Curtis Leinweber reacted the quickest after a ricochet rebound.
If Deggendorf lost more and more control of the game in the last few minutes before the break, the EHC was more than equal in section two.
Of half a dozen first-class chances, Vili Vesalainen had the two best (28th/38th), Bosecer failed on the post (31st).
Captain Phil Quinlan managed to equalize after a two-minute pressure phase on the power play (34').
Schunda was by no means idle, covering the puck before goalkeeper brother Thomas Pielmeier could dust off (32') and saved a penalty (35').
The remaining playing time was also a matter of strength reserves, with a double advantage for the guests who had been free of play two days before.
The DSC also scored twice (43rd/51st).
But Klostersee put away the arrears and came back.
Felix Kaller equalized in each case (45th/54th) before Pastachak decided in the penalty shoot-out.
