Bolzano jumps on 4th Place

04 Februar 2020

(PM EWHL) European Women’s Hockey League: the EVB Eagles South Tyrol beat Salzburg 4-1 and jump on fourth place…

For the Salzburg Eagles this result means the end of all hopes to reach the Final 4. They cannot reach a better place anymore than 7th while their worst case scenario is rank 8. All this will depend on their results in the last two games against Ljubljana and Almaty but also on the perfermances of Hvidovre IK Selects against Sabres and KMH.

By the way – the Sabres Vienna lost 1-4 in Budapest against KMH and are just on 6th place now. But they have only one point less than Bolzano and Team Poland with having one game less played. So the fight for the last spot in the Final 4 Tournament will continue after the national team break with the three mentioned teams plus Hvidovre (they still have this chance, too) involved…

And now on Sunday morning the KEHV Lakers will play Olimpija Ljubljana – last chance for the Slovenians to keep their hope for 9th place alive. In beginning of October the Carinthians won their road game in Ljubljana 4-0 and of course they will also be the favourites in their home game.
