After the defeat from Csíkszereda in the Erste League final, FTC-Telekom Men’s Ice Hockey team was invited to the final four of the Hungarian Cup to close this strange and difficult season. On Friday, FTC-Telekom played against DEAC and even if we first took the lead, in the end suffered a 2-1 defeat. On the other side, Hydro Fehérvár AV19 played against DVTK Jegesmedvék and Fehérvár advanced to the final. The Slovakian Extra League-member DVTK became then our opponent for the final, bronze match.
Compared to the semifinal our team played with a different lineup due to some injuries and suspensions. With a tough opponent like DVTK it was not easy to play, but we took the lead in the 24th minute, then created a hue dominance in the next minutes when we extended our lead to 3-0. After a time-out the opponents managed to close up to 3-1, but this was not enough for them to threaten our victory. We made it to 4-1 first, then in the end the team from Miskolc scored once more. We needed to play defense in the remaining parts of the second period but the result remained unchanged. In the last period, the DVTK players created chance after chance but our heroic defense stood firm and pushed back their attacks. With this confident, goal-oriented and heroic play, we won 4-2 and finished third in the cup.
Hungarian league gold, Hungarian cup bronze: Well done, team!
