The evening half of the thirty-second game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021 saw the return of the championship leader, Armeets.
The trend of teams failing to produce their maximum score continued, with an avalanche of goals scored in the first two games of the evening session.
The Armeets, on the rights of the leader, were returning to the tournament with the aim of breaking away from their pursuers, Belsk and Crystal. The team coped with the task partially, losing only to Kuznya in a game where the team from Balashikha created an impressive comeback, but made a fatal mistake with 20 seconds left in the game.
The Ledianye Voiny were slightly more successful today, losing only to the Armeets and showing a fairy-tale match against Uralets, which was finally won. The loss against Armeets prevented the Voiny from returning to the top half of the table, they are now 1 point behind Kuznya.
The team from Mogilev only beat Armeets, but even that result left the team in the first half of the championship. After the loss of their goalkeeper, the team is still recovering, looking for a replacement for their main goalkeeper.
The Uralets also came away with just one win today, beating Kuznya. All matches are very difficult for the team from Kachkanar – in every meeting the gap in the final score did not exceed 2 pucks. The team still has chances even for the top-2, gradually reducing the gap, but it is urgent to do something with the defense.
The results of the evening half of the thirty-second game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Kuznya – Armeets 7:6
Uralets v Ledianye Voiny 6-8
Ledianye Voiny – Armeets 4:7
Uralets – Kuznya 4:3
Kuznya – Ledianye Voiny 4:8
Armeets – Uralets 3:2
The Ledianye Voiny, having played two days, go on pause. Kuznya will proudly stand alone at the top of the table in the morning half of game day 33, but the evening half will feature a whole bouquet of exciting games involving Ledianye Voiny, Uralets and Crystal, as well as the Chetyre Ledokola.
