Latvian team won against home team the battle between eliminated teams


Playing essentially to avoid the last place, Kurbads and Lyon give room for back up goalies Richard and Romanovskis for the last game of the semi-finals. After a goal disallowed by Referees, Lyon opens the score at 04:39 with Ryan Verbeek, well assisted by Daniil Kulikov. Same Verbeek could increase the score at minute 8 but as his shot blocked by Romanovskis. At minute 16 Sherbatov incredibly misses the net on Zembergs assist. The Latvian goal comes at 18:33, courtesy of goalie Olivier Richard, maybe with an imperfect visual, surprised on Jekabs Redlihs shot, apparently harmless, from long distance. In the second period the game is more battling with chances for both teams: Lyon survives two consecutive power play, trying to bite Kurbads with quick counter-attacks: Andres and Pascal poke Romanovskis from the distance. At 35:00 Cipulis wastes a counterattack after a puck lost by Lyon in defensive zone firing of Richard, copied shortly after by Di Dio Balsamo, not finalizing a three versus one chance. The quiet third period is shaken by the sudden second goal of Kurbads, scored by Sherbatov, taking advantage of another mistake of French defense. Lyon has a furious reaction, has a chance deflected by Romanovskis, before to suffer the third goal, scored by Edgars Homjakovs after a smart pass by Sherbatov. Before the siren, Lyon pulls the goalie finding the second goal with Kyle Essery. At the last second Mickevits misses the puck from a good position, frustrating the dream of a late tie. It’s the last emotion in the game. Lyon closes the European debut with no points but praised by fans, Kurbads can regret the shy attitude of the first game, that probably cost the elimination

MVP: Kyle Essery - Martins Porejs
