HCL missing 2.8 seconds to the surprise

Against the undefeated leader from Passau, HC Landsberg could not reward themselves for a respectable performance and lost in the final seconds. Two days later they took indemnity for this in the canting victory in Grafing against EHC Klostersee.

With a lot of effort, self-sacrificing duel behaviour and good playful solutions, also due to the U20 players used, the Riverkings demanded everything from the Passau Black Hawks (four wins from four games in the intermediate round) in the home game in front of almost 1000 spectators. Reuter and Sturm gave the hosts a 2-0 lead with two beautifully-played goals. The visitors from Lower Bavaria used two overtime games to equalise, but once again Sturm with a piece of skill  scored immediately to make it 3-2. After Passau's goal for 3-3, everything looked to be already after the first point loss of the Blackhawks and extra time, when the puck fell in front of Passau's former DEL player Gawlik who netted 2.8 seconds before the end to the happy winner for the visitors.

The Riverkings then showed in Grafing that they were not to be thrown back by this bitter defeat. In the away game against EHC Klostersee, there was no doubt right from the start as to who would take the points that evening and they put the hosts under a lot of pressure. At first this was only countable in the 1-0 by Adriano Carciola, but with 5 goals between the 30th and 40th minute they showed impressively the scorer qualities. All in all, 7 different Landsberg players entered the scorer list in the clear 8:2 victory.

It had already become clear two weeks earlier that one would not be without a chance in Waldkraiburg. In the main round, Landsberg won 5-1 with one of the best performances of the season, but the fact that the match this time was practically decided after half an hour came as a surprise.

Reicheneder on pass of Machacek opened the scoring after only four minutes, after that Schwarzfischer (again assisted by Machacek), two times Sturm and Markus Kerber even with one player less were in the scoring list.

Waldkraiburg took his time out after the 5-0 and changed the goalkeeper, the Riverkings brought more young players from then on, but little changed in the direction of the game. Michael Fischer, again Kerber and Adriano Carciola made the final score.

In the previous game the HCL had to acknowledge the superiority of the ERC Sonthofen Bulls. In front of almost 1100 spectators in the Landsberg ice rink, the game against the Oberliga team was surprisingly open until 2:2, but towards the end the mostly faster and more serene guests from the Allgäu prevailed. At the score of 2:5, coach Fabio Carciola took goalkeeper Güßbacher off the ice four minutes before the end in favour of a sixth player - which allowed the Riverkings to score one more goal, but Sonthofen two. The final score of 3:7 was nevertheless a little too high in view of the performance shown.

HCL qualifies for the intermediate round

With a strong final spurt, HC Landsberg qualified for the intermediate round with clubs of the Bavarian Ice Hockey League and the Oberliga. After the 5:4 victory against Peißenberg, the team finished the main round in a strong 5th place.

The Riverkings had long feared for their place in the intermediate round after a number of successive defeats, but in the final games, coach Fabio Carciola's pre-season rejuvenated squad made another big leap forward. The surprising 4-1 win over leaders Miesbach was followed by a 5-4 victory against Schweinfurt and a superb 5-1 in Waldkraiburg. Peißenberg would have needed a win with at least seven goals difference in the last game in Landsberg to pass the HCL.

However, the hosts did not do the "Eishackler" this favour in the derby. After a 4-0 lead in the meantime, the Landsbergers struggled once again and had to let the ECP come closer until 4-4. But even before extra time, (when a counter-attack by Michi Fischer scored the winning goal 5-4) it was clear that nothing could go wrong with their participation in the intermediate round. The almost 1400 spectators in the Landsberg ice rink not only meant the best attendance of the season so far; the Riverkings also lead the spectator table of the Bayernliga by a clear margin.

In the intermediate round, the six best Bayernliga clubs an the Oberliga clubs in 11th and 12th place play out the pairings for the subsequent play-offs. However, the qualification for this round already ensures now that HC Landsberg will remain in the league in the next season.

3C Carbon Group enables HCL to sign another player

HC Landsberg has struck again in the fight for a play-off spot in the Bayernliga: Czech striker Petr Machacek has been signed for the remaining games. The reinforcement was mainly made possible by the support of main sponsor 3C-Carbon Group AG.

Although the top performers Daniel Menge and Adriano Carciola are now back in the game after a long injury, center forward Markus Kerber will probably be out of the game for 5 to 6 weeks (bone chipping on his thumb). In order to be able to take part in the play-offs, for which it is necessary to reach sixth place, the Riverkings have therefore once again been active on the transfer market.

The 23-year-old striker Petr Machacek from Chomutov was signed from San Sebastian. The left-back had previously played for the Czech U16 to U19 national teams and then played in the 2nd French league for a year. At all stations he stood out with a good eye, strong running technique and above all many scorer points.

"We think that Petr with his move to the goal is exactly the right player in our current situation", says HCL President Frank Kurz, who also explicitly thanked the 3C Carbon Group. "We know exactly what we have in our main sponsor. He has again given us exceptional support in this situation, which is the only way to make this commitment possible. Thank you very much for that!"

Micheal Güßbacher replaces injured Markus Kring

After regular goalkeeper Markus Kring drops out with an injury until the end of the season, Michael Güßbacher replaces him at HC Landsberg. The 24-year-old has been active for ESV Kaufbeuren in the DEL2 so far.

It was a bitter week for Markus Kring. His intervertebral disc problems, which had already appeared in the preparation for the season, broke up again and, after the medical diagnosis, make further assignments in the current season impossible. Since David Blaschta had held up well in the Riverkings' goal so far, but a junior goalkeeper had to be used as a backup, Vice President Gerhard Petrussek and Team Manager Michael Oswald immediately looked for a replacement and found one in Kaufbeuren.

The second goalkeeper there was Michael Güßbacher. Born in Landsberg, Güßbacher went through the junior stages at the ESVK and in Augsburg before gaining experience in the Oberliga in Hanover, Neuwied and Memmingen before moving on to the second highest division in Kaufbeuren - now he is back in his native town. A stroke of luck for Petrussek: "In the Bayernliga, the goalkeeper is extremely important, and with David and Michi we are now very well positioned. Both are strong young goalkeepers and will form a great duo".

An extra thanks went to DEL2 club Kaufbeuren for the changeover arrangements. "We are very grateful to ESV Kaufbeuren and especially to managing director Michael Kreitl that the change could be carried out so uncomplicated. This is by no means a matter of course".
