ISHF Liga Pro Electrostal Open 2021. First half of day 6.

The morning half of the sixth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021 gave us a real tournament of the best of the best, which included the troubled Ledianye Voiny, who lost all 3 matches and remained in the second half of the standings.

The Uralets continued their winning streak, defeating the Armeets team in another Kachkanoro-Balashikha derby and then defeating the Ledianye Voiny as well. The defeat from Crystal in the shootout should not be given too much weight, as the Urals team played from a position of strength the whole game and dominated their opponent. As before, there remains a need for a more confident defensive play. 

Having started the game day with a defeat, the Armeets team had a smooth approach to the match with the leader of the tournament – Crystal, in the match with which the fans preferred the team from Electrostal. But the red and blue team sensationally crushed the leader of ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021 with score 5:1, strongly surprising the opponent with their game.

Many teams started to get used to the game and tactics of Crystal, so it becomes more and more difficult to get a win for the team from Electrostal, and sometimes it is even impossible. Today they defeated both Uralets and Ledianye Voiny with minimal difference in the score, and then suffered a sensational defeat from Armeets, where sensational is not so much the result, as the difference in the score, as for the first time in this tournament Crystal players could not score more than one goal against their opponent.
