The 1st Day of ISHF Electrostal Cup 2021

The 1st Day of ISHF Electrostal Cup 2021

The ISHF Electrostal Cup kicked off in Electrostal. The opening match of the tournament was a meeting between the classic rivals, namely Ledianye Voiny and Uralets. The Voiny were in the lead for a long time, but Uralets managed to win in a series of penalty shots after the match. The second game was a “replay” of the semi-final match of the previous Jakhn Cup, namely Belsk vs Armeets. The Minsk players clearly had a revengeful spirit, and from the opening minutes the team from Minsk rushed to the attack. The final 6-3 victory left more questions about Armeets play than answers about Belsk’s. In their next games Armeets managed to beat Ledianye Voiny , and then crushingly lost to Urals, conceding a record, to date, 11 pucks to their goals. Belsk also lost the remaining games to the Ledianye Voiny and Uralets.
In the second game session the first game of the tournament was played by the hockey team Moskovskiy Eshelon, which lost its opening game to Molotoboytsy, but many have noted that the new participant of the tournament showed a very confident game during the whole game. And in the second game, the first sensation of the tournament happened: Kuznya lost to Ferrum, conceding 8 (!!!) pucks. The Latvian team captain, Vladislav Shiryaev, stepped up to the forefront, showing a solid performance on both ends of the floor. In their next matches Kuznya lost with the same light to Moskovskiy Eshelon, but in the last match of the first game day they still managed to get their first win, beating Molotoboytsy with a score of 4-10. Things got worse for Ferrum as they lost all their remaining matches, scoring only 4 goals in two matches. The closest victory was in the match against Moskovskiy Eshelon, in which the captain of the Moscow team got a red card already on the 7th minute of the match.
That was the first game day of the ISHF Electrostal Cup. The teams are coming to their senses after a short break between tournaments, and soon they will reveal their full potential to the spectators!
