The Klatov hockey players headed to Sokolov for the next match of the joint league of the Pilsen and Karlovy Vary Regions, where in the 6th round they met the reserve of the first league Baník. The match, rich in goals, finally came down to separate raids, in which the home fighters were more successful, and thus added two points to the table, while the guests from Klatov only got one.

“We got a point from the away game, which always counts, but given that we had more scoring opportunities in the game, the point is a loss for us,” said Radek Kampf, the coach of the Klato ice hockey players. “Especially in the first period, we were better, more dangerous in the attack, but the goalkeeper caught the home team above standard,” praised the coach of the masked man in the service of Baník.

Otherwise, he talked about optically balanced hockey, which in the end had to be decided by a competition of skills and calm heads. “In raids, it’s always someone with whom, like a lottery,” remarked the 59-year-old native of Litoměřice, who in his active playing career played 349 matches in the highest competition, in which he scored 94 goals.
After the sixth round, the Klatov hockey players are in fifth place in the regional league table with ten points, but they can move up already on Sunday, when they host the last Devils from Ostrov in the home arena from 5:30 p.m. They fell to the bottom thanks to the sensational victory of Mariánské Lázně against Apollo (6:3). The Rebels from Nejdek lead the competition by one point ahead of Rokycany and Třemošná.
