Created: 01/13/2023, 22:52
There was nothing to get in the Oberpfalz for the EHC Klostersee (Marinus Kritzenberger) with the top team of the league.
The final score of 1:6 could not hide the overall good performance of EHC Klostersee at the Blue Devils Weiden.
The Grafingers delivered a strong fight to the sovereign leader of the table.
Grafing – The Oberliga-Eishackler from EHC clearly lost because of five goals in opposition – three of them in the last four minutes.
After only 17 seconds, the third puck had to serve, two of the small black playing devices had each been deflected over the Plexiglas and had been collected by souvenir hunters.
The red-whites were not always as close to the Blue Devils as in these first two actions in the first third, as Philipp Quinlan complained in the break interview.
You have to stick more to your opponents.
"Of course the goal gave us a boost," added the EHC captain.
Vitus Gleixner missed Simon Roeder's flick, which meant that Jaroslav Hübl was left behind in the BDW box (18').
With that, the Klosterseer made it 1:2 before the end of the third after falling behind after only 101 seconds and conceding a goal in their own numbers.
Despite Phil Quinlan's critical attitude.
The first 20 minutes clearly documented, not only because of the goal, how the Grafingers have learned since the first day of the game and the exclusively defensive-passive appearance at the 0:5 in the same place.
This was all the more true for the second round, in which the leader, who had long since rushed ahead of all the competition, successfully completed another power play, but also urgently needed luck and a formidable Hübl between the posts.
With a balanced shooting ratio and three or four first-class opportunities for the EHC to finish, it could have been even closer in the second break.
The 1:3 halfway through the game was only Weiden's second significant chance in the middle third.
In which Philipp Hähl continued to be a strong and reliable support for the guests.
The final third started with a post smash by Vili Vesalainen and ended with the EHCler mostly double outnumbered for minutes, who felt unequally treated in the duels and had to swallow three more goals.
