SCL TIGERS vs HC DAVOS 0-1 (OT)
Davos earned a 1-0 overtime win against Langnau on the road at the end of a game that, let’s face it, wasn’t very spectacular.
Only at times in fact, the two teams were able to increase their level of play in the offensive zone. And in most cases, it was thanks to an individual play. The Ibexes, however, deserve a big special round of applause… even if only because they were able to stand up to Langnau (coached by the master Heinz Ehlers) in terms of tactic and organization!
It’s safe to say that none of the two teams were at the top of their game. But it’s also safe to say that none of them underperformed. Acutally, when it comes to defensive play, both teams were excellent and could count on solid goalies.
As the game went on, we all started to think that the score could be goalless after 60 miutes of play. And finally, so it was. The score could change only thanks to an individual play of a top class player… or during the overtime period, when – at 3 vs 3 – there are more spaces.
The second option prevailed. And so, 2 minutes and 7 seconds into the overtime period, Marc Wieser earned the Ibexes a well-deserved and hard-fought win!
THE GUY ON FIRE

Both goalies were seriously at the top of their game. We reward the one who, finally, earned a shutout!
