“Teplice should have lost after regular time, but coach Loun Petr Kotěšovský already conceded a goal to them in the first half, which the referee did not see; the goalkeeper caught the puck behind the goal line, which the coach saw well, but the referee, who was standing at the wrong angle, did not. Kotěšovský called him and showed with a gesture that he should concede the goal. It was fair of him. As a club, we thank him for such an attitude, this is how all coaches should behave. Similar acts are a great role model for children,” praised the fair play of the Louna coach Tibor Ondruš, the organizer of the series of six tournaments.
