On the evening half of the twenty-fourth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, Armeets could finally take the lead in the tournament and Chetyre Ledokola could push Almaty down to 7th place in the table.
The Chetyre Ledokola, despite winning only 1 match, were able to take advantage of the poor performance of Almaty to advance to the 7th place. The team continues to play without their captain, which certainly affects their performance, although the team is even safer from dropping out of the play-off zone.
The Molotoboytsy have only managed to beat the long-suffering Kuznya. Though the new additions to the team have a positive effect on the Molotoboytsy play, the team lacks the strength for more than 1 win with a difference of one puck, and in this case even on the shootout.
Kuznya gradually began to sink into the second half of the table. The team is saved only by the performances at the start of the tournament, when the team was able to build up a very big lead, gradually squandering it the last few days, sometimes, in bursts, winning.
The Armeets have kept a distance, relative to the other teams. Finally the coveted 3 wins and first place in the table. Yes, the advantage is only 2 points, but tomorrow the team can already break away from the pursuer in their head-to-head matches with Crystal.
The results of the evening half of the twenty-fourth matchday of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Kuznya – Armeets 0:4
Molotoboytsy – Chetyre Ledokola 5:6
Four Icebreakers v Armeets 3:5
Molotoboytsy – Kuznya 5:4
Kuznya – Chetyre Ledokola 6:3
Armeets – Molotoboytsy 6:3
The following teams will take part in the morning half of game day 25: Ferrum, Almaty, Chetyre Ledokola and Kuznya. The main intrigue of the game morning will be whether Ferrum will go on or finish off with a win, and whether Almaty will be able to reclaim 7th place in the table in their head-to-head clash with the Chetyre Ledokola.
In the evening, Belsk and Crystal return to action as they face the tournament’s reigning leader, Armeets.
