Here’s what happened during WFC Day 8, the day of the semifinals.
The second-to-last day of the WFC is over. Four games have been played: two placement games and of course the semifinals.
We’ll have a look at all games that have been played today:
Germany – Slovakia (5-8th place)
Latvia – Poland (5-8th place)
Sweden – Finland (semifinal)
Switzerland – Czech Republic (semifinal)
Germany – Slovakia 1-6
To be honest, this was not the best game of the tournament. Both teams lacked the energy to put full pressure on their opponent, which might have to do with the number of games in such a short time. Both Germany and Slovakia had already played five games in the last six days; Germany even had its last game (against Sweden) yesterday evening!

The Slovaks opened the scored in the first minute of the second period, while all other goals fell in the final period. Michaela Sponiarova scored 2+1 and helped her team to a 3-0 lead, before Germany found the net in powerplay. After this goal, Slovakia scored two more powerplay goals and one regular: 1-6. Slovakia moves on to the battle for 5th place against Poland, while Germany meets Latvia for 7th place.
