Carciola remains HCL coach

After the early termination of the ice hockey season, Bayernligist HC Landsberg has nevertheless already made an important personnel decision: Fabio Carciola remains coach of the Riverkings.

"He is convinced of our way to increasingly promote and integrate our own young talents", says HCL President Frank Kurz, "you can already see that from the way he integrated numerous young players into the first team last season". Carciola and the HCL-presidium quickly agreed in view of the team's achievements, and together they decided to extend the contract for the next season.

However, due to the current situation, it is not yet possible to predict when this season will start and how the leagues will be composed.

Two victories for the play-offs

With two victories, the Riverkings have already made participation in the play-offs to the ice hockey Oberliga almost a foregone conclusion one matchday before the end of the interlocking round. The somewhat surprising 4-2 win in Passau was followed two days later by a landslide victory over Klostersee.

With 10:2 they shot the guests from Grafing, who were completely indisposed that evening, out of the hall. With better exploitation of oppoertunities, the result could have been even higher.

Klostersee had even taken the lead through Wren after just under nine minutes. But then the Riverkings really got going, with the scorers initially coming in a brace: Reuter and the all-conquering Dennis Sturm turned the 0-1 into a 6-1 until halfway through the game, after which the other attackers were allowed to cheer as well, with Gäbelein reserving the right to make a double-digit final score five minutes before the end of the game.

As expected, things had been tighter in Passau. Mitchell and Charvat had given the Riverkings a 2-0 lead over the favourites, but the hosts could not be shaken off and in the final phase came close to 3-2. Krammer with his Empty-Net-Goal in the final minute secured the points for the HCL.

With this, the Landsbergers have regained sixth place, which is enough for direct play-off qualification. The possibility that they will be intercepted by Waldkraiburg on the final matchday is only a theoretical danger with a lead of three points and 23 goals. The quarter-finals will then be played in best-of-five mode, with the first play-off match taking place on 13 March.

Riverkings bring a point from Miesbach

Strong HC Landsberg loses to the hosts only in the penalty shootout.

A mostly convincing performance was rewarded with only one point at the end. For a long time it looked as if HCL would leave the ice as the winner. Jähnichen, Mitchell and Raß had given a 3:1 lead when ex-Landsberger Slavicek conceded a goal. Miesbach put pressure in the early stages, but the Landsbergers convinced with beautiful individual performances that led to the goals.

In the second period, however, the Carciola squad lost the touch completely at times with numerous disc losses. The home side took merciless advantage of this period of weakness and from their point of view even made the 1:3 a 4:3. When hopes already seemed to be swept away, Daniel Menge once again put himself in the limelight and equalized to 4:4.

Despite a powerplay in overtime, the Riverkings did not score any more, so that both teams had to shoot for a penalty. There Dennis Sturm on the Landsberg side conjured up two spectacular successful attempts. However, he failed in his third attempt, his opponent Dusan Frosch scored in return, so that two points went to Miesbach and the Landsbergers brought home a point.

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.

HCL celebrates a blowout victory

After the defeat against Oberliga club Sonthofen, HC Landsberg surprisingly won 8:0 in Waldkraiburg to take the first three points in the intermediate round between the Ice Hockey Bayernliga and the Oberliga.

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.
