In the morning half of the twenty-third game of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, Crystal could form a comfortable lead over their pursuers, Belsk tried to dethrone Armeets from 2nd place, and Ledianye Voiny had a realistic chance to jump their 2 table rivals at once.
Belsk missed all their opportunities. The team couldn’t bring down Armeets from second place, moreover, for the first time in a long time the Minsk team lost all their matches of the day. The team temporarily lost another leader, which certainly affected the team, with the absence of team captain Aleksandr Akhramovic.
Once again, the Uralets came away with just one win for the day. Another defeat in a historic derby with the Ledianye Voiny allowed the Moscow team to move into a clean 4th place in the standings. The Moscow team approached the morning games very competently, winning all their games and moving up from 6th to 4th place. Now the team are starting to get closer to the positions that were predicted for the team before the start of the competition.
Crystal were able to take advantage of the Armeets absence and suffered defeat in only one game. The next day the team go on break, which could certainly equalise, or even drop the team one line down, subject to a successful performance by the Balashikha team.
The results of the morning half of the twenty-third game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Belsk – Crystal 2:4
Ledianye Voiny – Uralets 8:5
Crystal – Ledianye Voiny 3:7
Uralets – Belsk 4:2
Crystal – Uralets 6:5
Belsk – Ledianye Voiny 3:5
The second half of the day will not bring the short hockey fans any meaningful confrontations, apart from the now traditional Almaty-Ferrum. Also in this quartet are Kuznya and the Chetyre Ledokola, in the case of a 100% win, the Mogilev team can only level on points with Uralts, who finished their performance on this game day.
On game day 24, the two leaders Crystal and Belsk go on pause, the benefits of which should have a positive effect on both squads.
