ACHA select – EUHL select 5: 1 (2: 0, 2: 1, 1: 0)
The Guys from overseas have shown their determination to fight and win as early as the start of the game, they opened game with a Koerner goal score in 2 minutes. On the other hand, Březák and Novák were threatened, but it was not enough to make up for it, and even the European game did not help the game. On the other hand, shortly after the return of the excluded player, the Americans got back again and Marrett ended up with a 2-0 goal. Klotz was also tested by Olivu, but this was once the goal scorer.
The Europeans grew more committed to the second act, and the European selects made it to the point of contact; Březák fired from the blue, Valder ran. Lucky, however, did not stand for Kasal, who, after an individual chance, managed only to construct a goal. On the contrary, the Americans managed to take advantage of their chances – in return for two goals, they retired thanks to Klotza and shortly before the end of the game, Garst pushed.
At the beginning of the last part, the Europeans played two games of chance, but they could not make it. On the other hand, college graduates from overseas; Murphy got into the breeze and, after laying Olive on the ice, ended up with the right stick. The Europeans tried to make their opponents even more troubling, but they did not find the Tracy recipe.
