180 spectators were allowed in the Landsberg ice rink according to the current hygiene concept and they saw a furious start of the Riverkings. US newcomer Hayden Trupp served Adriano Carciola and after just under two minutes it was 1-0 for the hosts. A little later, Trupp scored the next point: He served Maximilian Rass, who increased the score to 2-0.

The guests from the Allgäu, last season's surprise team of the Oberliga Süd, did not lose their temper, however. Besl and former Landsberg player Vogl equalised in the middle third, before Krammer gave HCL another 3-2 lead in the final section. Towards the end of the game, the better-rehearsed routines and the effectiveness and experience of the guests prevailed. The outstanding players Krötz and Stauder turned the game around in favour of Füssen. However, the Landsberg officials were satisfied with their team's performance in the first game.
