In the morning half of the twenty-eighth game of ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, the second and third teams battled for position in the table, Uralets was to take revenge on Ledianye Voiny, and the Voiny themselves could get as close to the top three as possible.
Crystal were able to tie on points with the Armeets, although the Balashikha team has one game in hand. After a cardinal change in the roster, the team played their previous few game days to their advantage, playing together.
The team captain returned to Belsk, but this did not help the team’s results. Tonight, only a resounding victory over the Ledianye Voiny. Thanks to today’s results, the Minsk team let Crystal and Armeets go even by 15 points.
The Uralets lost today only to Crystal, but beat Ledianye Voiny, from whom the Kachkanar team suffered a defeat the day before. The team is confidently on the 4th line and is 9 points away from Belsk. There is still plenty of time for the team to win medals at this WCS stage.
The Ledianye Voiny continue to ride the rollercoaster, alternating between a winning day and a disappointing one. Yesterday was a 100% win, hence today followed by a bad day. Two big, one might even say smashing, defeats to Crystal and Uralets and a match in which players from the Moscow team literally gave Belsk the victory. Chistyakov left, and the team dramatically showed such results…
