Yesterday all twelve teams had to get up on the field again. After losing its leading position on Saturday, Köniz moved back to the first spot again as Wiler-Ersigen couldn’t defeat Zug in regular time. Here are all results from yesterday’s round.
GC Zürich and Rychenberg, both strong teams, one would say – but not during their match yesterday. The Grasshoppers have been a scoring machine since the start of the season, with HCR as their latest victim. After two periods the score was 5-1 already, but the massacre started in the last part of the game. Eight (!) goals were scored, leading to a final result of 13-1. A painful loss for HCR, while the three points help GC to stay in the top 3.
Despite three goals in the last period, Chur couldn’t defeat Malans – as we wrote before – giving Zug the chance to move up one spot on the ranking. The team faced a tough job as current champion Wiler-Ersigen was their opponent, but they did surprisingly well. The start of the game was Wiler’s however, as they took a 4-0 lead in no time – but Zug struck back. The team turned around the score completely, which led them to a 4-6 lead! However, this time Wiler fought back to 6-6. Both teams took the lead one more time, but after 60 minutes the score was tied: 8-8. In overtime, Daniel Johnsson gave Wiler-Ersigen the remaining point: 9-8.
Tigers Langnau gained important points by beating Waldkirch-St. Gallen 5-8. The Tigers moved up to fourth place, while WaSa fell back to sixth place. With Wiler not winning in regular time, Köniz found a way to get back on top of the ranking. The team defeated Kloten-Bülach Jets 5-8, although it was mainly thanks to their great last fifteen minutes, in which they turned around the score from 5-3 to 5-8. During the last game of the weekend, Uster beat Thun 8-2. They moved up to seventh place, while Thun stays on the bottom of the ranking.
