“You don’t win games in the penalty box”, this old ice hockey wisdom was proven once again today. The Augsburg Panthers lost their chance of an away win in Straubing with too many penalties at the wrong time.

A lack of efficiency costs Augsburg the lead

Even if the Tigers had more of the game in the first third, the AEV did well in the first three, especially on the defensive. With a goalless draw, it was back out of the dressing room after twenty minutes. Back on the ice, the Swabians had several opportunities to take the lead, but also missed out in promising situations. After going it alone, Sternheimer should have made it 1-0 for the Swabians, as did LeBlanc and Bergman a little later, both of whom missed from a good position. A lack of efficiency was one of the problems of Augsburg today, which also weakened itself. Especially in this good phase, Nehring and Graham afforded penalties, which Samanski was able to use for Lower Bavaria (33rd).

penalties at the wrong time

When, after the second change of sides, two AEV employees took a seat in the cool box at the same time, the doorbell rang again. Scheid scored to make it 2-0 shortly after the break. When captain Schönberger was even able to raise the ball five minutes later, the game was over. The 1:3 by Payerl a good six minutes before the end came too late. For the first time the Panthers could not win a clash with the EHC. The 26th loss of the season was the start of a tough week. Due to numerous catch-up games, the cracks of coach Serge Pelletier have to play five times within the next ten days.

Young crack with debut before Mammutwoche

After leaders Berlin handed in their business card on Tuesday, four feasible opponents will come to the Curt Frenzel Stadium in Bremerhaven (Wednesday), Krefeld (Friday), Bietigheim (Sunday) and Cologne (Tuesday). In order for it to work with points in this stress program, it is necessary to expand the squad again. Since four players were not available with the injured attackers Stieler, Trevalyan and Sapponari, as well as the sick defender Rogl, 18-year-old Lennard Nieleck from his own DNL made his debut in the upper house of ice hockey today.
