In the victory against Hungary, Belarus shows all the potential of a superior team


Like Korea, also Belarus finished the second day of World Championship keeping a perfect record after beating Hungary, still pointless despite a much better performance after the disaster in the first game. Coach Majoross can’t count with defender Bence Sziranyi and switch the starting goalie giving a chance to Adam Vay. Same DVTK Jegesmedvek concedes the first goal at 04:32 imprecisely deflecting a shot by Sergei Malyavko giving the rebound for an easy finishing by Valentin Feoktistov. The game is balanced, both teams has chances to score and the spectators can enjoy the show, maybe except the Hungarian fans.

The central period begins with Hungary more aggressive, not taking advantage from a power play, but Belarus again proves to be a solid team, waiting for the right moment to strike again: after a messy move in front of the cage, Geoff Platt serves Evgeny Lisovets, finding the right path in the traffic for the 2-0 at 24:49.

At minute 55 Vilmos Gallo steals a puck coming in front of Milchakov but the goalie blocked while Gallo earns a controversial penalty leaving his team down by two men for the inevitable 3-0 scored by Geoff Platt with a one-timer. Before the end of the match finally Hungary finds the deserved goal with Vilmos Gallo on power play after a confuse moment near the cage. Not really the best performance for Hungary, but certainly today the team fights

Gergely Majoross: “We started the game very well, dominating the beginning of the game but we didn’t find the way to put the puck in the net. I’m proud of the guys, they played well, the difference in my opinion was the capacity to finalize”

Andrei Sidorenko: “We were not so active at the beginning, but after the first goal the team start to play better, I’m glad my team win”

MVP: Istvan Bartulis – Dmitri Milchakov
