In the morning half of the twenty-fifth game of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, only teams from the bottom of the standings played, one of which is not even in the play-off zone.
Ferrum, which stirred up all the short hockey fans the day before, started the day with another victory over Almaty, but then the team remembered its place in the standings and played two completely different matches that ended in defeats: a rout by Four Icebreakers and a minimal defeat by Kuznya with a difference of one puck. I would like to believe that we won’t have to wait a dozen games before our next win.
Kuznya were the highest-ranked team in this quartet (6) and, as proof of that, they beat all their opponents. The most painful blow came from the Chetyre Ledokola, who conceded 7 pucks from the Mogilev team. With the Ice Warriors and Uralets now on pause, the team temporarily managed to take 4th place in the table.
The Chetyre Ledokola, apparently too encouraged by their results yesterday, lost their first game 7-2. Then the team got a boost of motivation and won the remaining games by a 15-5 goal difference.
Almaty, following the results of the day’s play, dropped to 8th place. Another 3 defeats in the tournament. Tomorrow the team will have another day off, during which they should try to get their game back from two weeks ago.
The results of the morning half of the twenty-fifth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Ferrum – Almaty 5:2
Kuznya – Chetyre Ledokola 7:2
Almaty – Kuznya 3:4
Chetyre Ledokola – Ferrum 9:2
Almaty – Chetyre Ledokola 3:6
Ferrum – Kuznya 1:2
After this game day, the up-tempo Ferrum and the stalled Almaty go into their penultimate break.
On the evening half of the match day, the spectators can look forward to a real feast of matches, as each game will have a backstory and intrigue. The contestants for the evening half will be Armeets, Crystal, Belsk and Molotoboytsy.
