After the break, the wolves seemed unsettled by the late equalization of the guests. But it could also have been because the row composition made by coach Robert Hoffmann after the game in Crimmitschau had not yet reached the players. In any case, Freiburg had a hard time and even a four-minute excess did not bring any improvement. On the contrary. The EHC failed to establish itself in the opposing third of the defense. To make matters worse, a bad pass brought the guests into possession, and they countered routinely. Sahir Gill was able to achieve the 2: 1 from Landshut’s point of view in the 26th minute.
Now the wolves were totally out of the question. Passes did not arrive and most of the attack attempts ended at the opposing blue line. A mistake gave the guests the next big chance, which Yannik Valenti used ice cold to 3-1 for Landshut.
In the last section, the wolves managed to regain at least their optical superiority. But the shots on goal were too unplaced and easy prey for goalkeeper Pätzold in the guests’ box.
Freiburg often brought the disc into the opposing zone, but got bogged down on the boards and in the corners. Again and again, the guests managed to get the puck out of the danger zone and to drive dangerous counterattacks themselves. The Landshut team made it 4-1 through Adrian Klein in the 45th minute and just four minutes later ex-Freiburg-born Andreé Hult prevailed and overcame the powerless Červený to the depressing 5-1.
You couldn’t accuse the wolves of giving up without a fight, but the efforts repeatedly fizzled out on the well-staggered defense of the guests.
In the last minute of the game, Marcel Kurth finally made it 2: 5. Jordan George played the decisive pass in front of the empty goal and Kurth only had to push in.
“We have to work through today’s mistakes and correct them by Sunday,” said Robert Hoffmann, analyzing the bankruptcy at home. Guest coach Leif Carlsson was of course satisfied with the performance of his team.
On Sunday the wolves will play away in Dresden, before the ESV Kaufbeuren im Breisgau will be a guest next Friday.
