Wins for Sabres and MAC

01 Februar 2021

(PM EWHL) European Women’s Hockey League: the Sabres Vienna beat Aisulu on the road with their 8th consecutive win (2-1) and so they did the next step towards a final 4 qualification…

With 27 points form 12 games they are already 6 points ahead of fifth ranked Almaty… with one game less played. Another great performance of goalie Selma Luggin with 44 saves (and only one goal against) plus two goals of Kayla Nielsen secured the three points for the Austrian team. Like the day before against Salzburg Aisulu again had much more shots (45-18) but had difficulties with scoring. So the Kazakhs need now urgently points from their last three Championship games against Bolzano, Bratislava and Vienna to keep their theoretical chance for the play offs.

MAC Budapest is in a much better situation after a 4-3 against Bolzano. The Italians were already leading 3-1 after 11 minutes but MAC could turn the result finally and so avoided a big sensation. And though it was the 13th loss in 13h game for the Eagles South Tyrol they were very close to their first season win…
