EHC BIEL-BIENNE vs KAC KLAGENFURT 4-2
Champions Hockey League – 15.10.2019
Bienne earned another win against Klagenfurt – 4-2 this time the final score at the Tissot Arena – and therefore made it brillantly to the Round of 16 as winners of the Group A!
The Austrians of Klagenfurt turned out to be a tough nut to crack. But the Seeländers relied on their talent to make the difference at the key moments of the game. Just like in the first period, when Toni Rajala scored the first goal of the night after 14 minutes and 27 seconds of play. And just like in the second period, during which Klagenfurt had their chances but Bienne went 3-0 ahead thanks to the goals scored by Peter Schneider (shootout) and Anssi Salmela by the 32nd minute of play.
Klagenfurt then made it a brand new game with Nicholas Petersen. But less then a second before the second break Mike Künzle restored the hosts 3-goals lead and basically sealed the 3 points and the qualification.
During the third period in fact the visitors tried their hardest… but were able only to score with Andrew Kozek the goal that set the 4-2 final score. And so the Seeländers, at their first CHL appearance, could celebrate a fantastic qualification to the Round of 16 as group winners!
