Comfortable victory and first points for Hungary in Nur-Sultan


In a game crucial to avoid relegation – both teams start the confrontation pointless – Hungary finally finds the first victory in its disappointed tournament so far. Coach Majoross has defender Bence Sziranyi back in the roster after the injury, while Lithuania added Tadas Kumeliauskas to the squad, after the Memmingen Indians forward recover from a minor injury. Coach Lacriox chooses experienced Mantas Armalis in the net after the debut of junior Laurynas Lubys in the last game against Kazakhstan

Two goals by Istvan Bartalis give Hungary a double advantage in the first period, with mention for the second, scored after a classy move in the Baltic defense. In a period well controlled by Hungary, the goal scored by Kumeliauskas on power play one minute before the siren leaves opened the question.

In the second period Lithuania pays the price of inexperience and the indecisions of goalie Armalis: Hungary scores twice after an imprecise intervention of Skelleftea goalie: at 26:14 Csanad Erdelyi tapping in a rebound after a shot by Janos Vas; at 36:04 a wrong pass by Armalis serving Bartalis who finds Istvan Sofron ready for the decisive deflection.

Hungary controls the game in the third period, without emotions until the final brave assault of Lithuania, pulling the goalie, without scoring.

Finally three points for Hungary against a weaker opponent and another good game pointless for Lithuania

MVP: Ugnius Cizas – Istvan Sofron
