In the morning half of the tenth Gameday of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, Armeets continued their winning streak, Uralets suffered their first three defeats in a row, Almaty continues its emergence as a potential leader, and Molotoboytsy are tasting victory.
With 3 wins in three games, Armeets are firmly entrenched at #2 in the table, moreover, the team from Balashikha could catch up with the leader on points – both have 54, but Crystal have 3 more games.
Almaty continue to gain a foothold among the leaders, losing only to the Armeets. The team doesn’t take handfuls of their opponents, the scoreline is always very slippery, almost even. The team continues to promote their attacking style of game, with goalkeeper Grigory Kolupaev helping them out from the back.
Uralets unexpectedly went downhill, losing all 3 matches to their opponents, remaining in 5th line. So far nothing changes in the game of the Kachkanar team – the team is scoring, but something incredible continues to happen with the defense. Even dominating in the game components, the team manages to concede and end up losing matches against opponents who, not so long ago, seemed not even close to Uralets.
No stability in the Molotoboytsy’s game so far. In games against Almaty, the team has a 0-4 record. In the match against the Armeets, the team was defeated both in terms of play and score. The win over Uralets in the penalty shootout did not stand out at all in the Molotoboytsy’ performance, as the team lost the lead twice, taking the game to the penalty shootout.
