HC Landsberg rewarded themselves for two strong performances: The 6:5 n.V. in Höchstadt was followed by a 5:3 home win against Memmingen and with these five points they remain in the race for the Pre-Play-Offs.
Mainly the points at the third-placed team in Höchstadt were not necessarily to be expected. In a hard-fought and exciting game, the lead changed back and forth several times. Shortly before the end of regulation time, Lavallee seemed to have put the Riverkings on the winning track with a goal to 4:5, but Höchstadt managed to equalise 5:5 seconds before the end. In overtime, Walker Sommer scored for Landsberg to make it 6-5 and bring home two points.
There, the game against Memmingen two days later did not start well for the hosts. In the derby in front of a good 1200 spectators, the Allgäu team took a 1:0 lead after only 52 seconds. However, with a lot of physical effort and fighting spirit, Landsberg managed to turn the game around. Sommer, Wagner and Gäbelein made it 3:1 in the meantime and the team did not let go of the game. In the final minute, it was Walker Sommer again who scored into the empty Memmingen goal for the final score.
This means that 10th place, which was the goal of the season, is still within reach.
Goals for the Riverkings in Höchstadt: Lavallee (2), Sommer (2), Wagner, Reuter.
