It is always phenomenal to celebrate a championship title. On Tuesday night our hockey players stepped on the ice with thoughts like these, they had to be victorious in this one last game to win the Erste League for the first time.
All the tickets were sold for the fifth game against Csíkszereda, The Ice Arena of Pesterzsébet was completely full. The teams started the game with lots of energy, there were some dangerous opportunities for both of the teams, but Csíkszereda was the first to score the goal. The players of Fradi were a little surprised at the way the opponent started, but we quickly got ourselves together, had even more chances and avoided a second goal from Csíkszereda.
In the second period, we were putting on an entirely different game. Our defense was almost perfect and we started attacking the net of the opponent insistently, we really wanted to win this game. The hard work paid off – we quickly scored 3 goals. In the 33rd minute, Lauri Kärmeniemi scored the first Fradi goal of the game, making the score even. We didn’t have to wait long for that second goal, we took the lead with the goal of Farkas Lőrincz. Before the end of the period, Tóth Adrián also found the net and we left the ice with a leading 3-1.
The third period started wonderfully! Nagy Gergő, our captain scored right at the beginning and we were leading 4-1. Our defence was still strong, Arany Gergely was amazing in the net.Tóth Gergő scored the fifth Fradi goal with amazing play.
