ERC Ingolstadt turned the game around against Cologne with two late hits, but had to admit defeat 2: 3 after extra time. What Jerome Flaake says about the game.
The jubilation in the Saturn Arena was huge when Jerome Flaake played in the 59th minute ERC Ingolstadt against Cologne with a 2-1 lead. The game was turned, victory was near. But the Panthers received the compensation in return and still continued to admit defeat 2: 3 after extra time.
“It’s disappointing that we couldn’t hold onto the lead,” said ERC coach Doug Shedden. “The guys have worked hard, but we are currently very unlucky.” It was “like bewitched,” said Flaake about the current situation. “We had a lot of chances that can also jump in from time to time. Luck is just not on our side. ”“ We just have to keep working hard and not let our heads droop. ”There are still enough games to move up in the table.
ERC Ingolstadt: Rämö messes with the goal
In the first section the panthers had a slight advantage. Wayne Simpson and Daniel Pietta had chances when they were outnumbered (5th), then Justin Pogge parried against Simpson (10th). The best opportunity was offered to Mirko Höfflin, who failed alone in front of the goal against the Cologne goalkeeper (15th). The sharks also came to terms with Karri Rämö keeping his box clean. However, the Finn was not always able to hold onto the pane and did not radiate security to the people in front of him. Cologne’s opening goal was a reflection of the ERC’s last season (16th). The panthers squeezed, the five people from Cologne had played tiredly on the ice. Then Frederik Storm easily lost the puck and the sharks countered quickly. The harmless and durable shot by Marcel Müller let Rämö slip through to 0: 1. The ERC came out of the first break powerfully and put the Haie on the defensive. Only one hit did not succeed. Both Brandon DeFazio (23rd) and Ben Marshall (28th) faked shots by Fabio Wagner unsuccessfully. The guests concentrate on the defensive and became dangerous in the second half of the section. A deflected shot landed on Luis Üffing’s racket, who hit the side netting instead of the empty goal (35th). Rämö prevented the second goal against Ferraro (37th).
The beginning of the third third is similar to that of the second. Cologne was concerned about safety, the ERC rarely got through. Louis-Marc Aubry (42nd) and Flaake (49th) worked in front of the goal and falsified shots dangerously. Then Pietta came to a free end, Pogge was again the end of the line (50th). The Cologne case seemed like exactly.
One-two punch puts Panther in the lead
Until the ERC – driven by a loud audience – made up for outnumbered by Chris Bourque (52nd). After Cologne was not successful in the power play, the ERC struck again. After a long pass from Wagner, Höfflin served Flaake, who scored 2-1 (59th). The joy shouldn’t last long. Cologne pulled the goalkeeper and promptly equalized through Ferraro – 2: 2 (59th). In overtime, the Haie had the better end for themselves. Moritz Müller made the decision (63rd) with a placed slap shot.
