The morning half of the twentieth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021 brought together teams placed in the second half of the standings. Even Kuznya, ranked fifth in the table in terms of play, belonged more to the second half than to the leaders.
Almaty had no trouble scoring two one-point wins over Ferrum and Kuznya, but against the Chetyre Ledokola the team was unable to show character and lost in a blowout to the Chetyre Ledokola.
Apparently the Chetyre Ledokola can’t show consistent results. In the last three days the team had a streak of three wins, then suffered three defeats, and today again three wins. This instability could play havoc with the team in the future, although the gap to the chaser is an impressive 29 points.
Today might be a day to remember for all the fans, and indeed for the players themselves, of the Ferrum team, as the team finally got a win. With a difference of two goals Kuznya was defeated. In the remaining matches, the team lost the usual way, but managed to show character, losing both games by a difference of one puck.
The title of total outsider goes to Kuznya, who continue to miss out on the chance to take fourth place. Although the team is above all their opponents, they had the worst result of any team today.
The results of the morning half of the twentieth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Ferrum – Almaty 2:3
Kuznya – Chetyre Ledokola 5:7
Almaty – Kuznya 5:4
Chetyre Ledokola – Ferrum 9:8
Almaty – Chetyre Ledokola 2:5
Ferrum – Kuznya 6:4
The evening half of the game day promises colourful battles in almost every match. Even the Molotoboytsy have their teeth set on Crystal and will try to snatch the cherished points from the Electrostal team.
On April 21, Ferrum and Almaty head off for another day off. At the last minute, the team from Kazakhstan started to level the game, with 2 wins.
