Czech Republic – Slovakia

29.11 21:27

The guest team line-up was not at its best, for objective reasons. The three lines that did play started the match poorly, giving up five east goals, and scoring none. The sixth goal came after the first break. By the 21st minute the Czech Republic was already 8 goals ahead. The scoreboard could have shown 8:3, but the Slovak team missed all three penalty shots it was awarded. Neither Jozef Petho, nor Marian Uharcek, nor Branislav Janos were able to get the puck past Dusan Salficky. After successfully defending the net during a penalty shot by Janos, Salficky was replaced by Marcel Kucera. It was then that Jan Zlocha succeeded in scoring the first goal for the Slovak team, coming only 20 seconds after Kucera’s appearance on the ice. Only 40 seconds passed when Lubomir Sekeras reduced the differences in goals to six.


By that time the match levelled off. In fact, in the period following the goalie’s replacement the home team was actually losing 3 to 4. Any team would have been satisfied with a 8:0 score, but the fans pushed their favourite players ahead, and were eager to see a double-digit score.


The Slovak team decided to change the goalie after the tenth goal: Rastislav Rovnianek left the net to Pavol Hronsky. In the remaining time, Hronsky let only one goal pass. No one could stop Viktor Ujcik on this day, who scored 4 goals and had one assist.


Having won with a final score 11:4, the Czech Republic placed ahead of the Russian team due to a better goal difference.


Apart from Ujcik, a three-time Olympic champion, four-time world cup winner, Olympic champion and champion of Russia with Avangard, Pavel Patera, contributed greatly to the Czech victory with one goal and three assists. Petr Korinek and Oldrich Valek scored two goals each, and Bedrich Scerban, Richard Zemlicka and Jan Peterek, the first foreign player to play in Yaroslavl, each scored one goal. Scoring for Slovakia were Jan Zlocha, Lubomir Sekeras, Michal Hreus and Branislav Janos.
