EWHL-Showdown in Budapest

The decisive game for the gold medals 2023-24 will be played in Tüskesator / Budapest.

The first final game was played in Bratislava on Friday and the Slovaks succeeded with a 2-1 win. So they will take a 1-goal-lead into the second game (CHL mode) and try to get the third ever EWHL gold to Bratislava. After a long period… as the first two Championship wins of Bratislava were in 2005-06 and 2006-07 season. Or will Hokiklub Budapest win the sixth consecutive title and be equal with the Sabres Vienna who are the only team so far that could win the EWHL trophy 6 times? In that case the Hungarians need a result with two goals difference in the second game. If they will win the game with one goal difference there will be a 10 minutes sudden victory overtime played. Or – if there’s no goal in that overtime – a shootout has to decide the final for gold.

In the duel for third place MAC Budapest won 8-3 in Graz and has now all chances to get the bronze medals. A strong first period (4-1) and a furious third (4-0) brought already a 5-goal-advantage for the Hungarians. The second game will be played on Saturday at 7.45 p.m. in Mátyásföldi Jégcsarnok.
