The Swiss NLA is getting close to its climax, as on Saturday, the final will be played. The gold will go to either GC Unihockey or Wiler-Ersigen.
In the playoff series, the Grasshoppers (GC) started of with a relatively easy 4-0 victory over HC Rychenberg. In the semifinals, Alligator Malans became a tough nut to crack. GC took the lead, but Malans tied (1-1). However, when the Grasshoppers won two games in a row, things started to look bad for the Alligators – but they too won twice in a row (3-3). The last game between the two was played yesterday, in which GC granted itself a ticket to the final by beating Alligator Malans for the fourth time (9-3).
Wiler-Ersigen, runner-up in the league after GC, put aside Uster in the quarterfinals (4-0) and basically did the same to Köniz, last year’s champion. The first two games were won, but the third was was lost in a close game, which ended in 4-5. With two victories for Wiler again, the team won the series 4-1 and is once again one of the finalists.
The final will be played on Saturday April 27 at 20:15 CET. The livestream will be posted later this week, so stay tuned.
