In the morning half of the nineteenth game of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, two teams stood out – Uralets and Ledianye Voiny – while Almaty continued on the path that the team had paved in the first week of the tournament and only beat Ferrum.
0-3 again. That’s the result once again for the team from Latvia. You can see that the team is trying to do something against their opponents, but it does not work out so well.
Almaty, who owed Ferrum back for yesterday’s defeat, aren’t far behind, but otherwise, the team is losing to everyone above them in the standings. The reasons for these results must first of all be explained to the players themselves. What happened that the team from Kazakhstan went back to beating Ferrum from a team that smashed everyone.
The Uralets again didn’t show anything supernatural, they lost to the Ledianye Voiny, but managed to win the other 2 games against the outsiders. At the moment the team from Kachkanar are in the middle of the tournament, losing to more well-played teams and beating weaker ones. Yes, sometimes there are exceptions in both directions.
After a lacklustre performance the day before, the team made up for lost points by beating all their opponents this morning, in parallel climbing up to 4th and 5th place in the standings. If the victory over Uralets was a tough one, then Almaty and Ferrum were unable to show anything against this team, conceding 8 pucks each.
The results of the morning half of the nineteenth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Ledianye Voiny – Uralets 4:3
Ferrum – Almaty 3:4
Uralets – Ferrum 4:1
Almaty – Ledianye Voiny 3:8
Uralets – Almaty 7:2
Ledianye Voiny – Ferrum 8:2
Based on the recent results from the Chetyre Ledokola, a very unstoppable quartet is going to come together in the second half. Yes, Armeets will fight for the right to return to the top spot, Kuznya need only two wins to equalize with Uralets, and Chetyre Ledokola are gradually getting closer to an Almaty team that has been scoring points on rare occasions.
The Uralets and Ledianye Voiny go on pause after this game day. After last week’s pause, Uralets started to lose ground dramatically, failing to continue their winning streak. The Ledianye Voiny, on the other hand, have made good progress in recent days, and at the moment the benefit of the break for them is questionable, as there have already been examples in this tournament of the team returning from the weekend completely different than they went into it.
