Sheffield close the Superfinals with a victory, reaching the third place: Renon is fourth for the second year


Renon and Sheffield play the last effort of their disappointing campaign at Superfinals with the only goal to avoid the last place, placing already got last season by Renon in the Superfinals at home. Italian has Thomas Spinell suspended after the major penalty taken yesterday, while Steelers has Finnish Miika Franssila back in the roster after the light injury. No chances for Roberet Dowd, his Continental Cup finished after the first game.

The first period, played in slow pace, ended with Steelers up to one goal, scored by Andreas Jamtin at 15:48, finishing a confusing action on power play in front of Killeen cage. At the beginning of the the second period Renon has a couple of power plays not exploited, risking suffering the second goal when Killeen must rebound on Fretter and Roy. At minute 30 Kyle Jean wastes a capital chance firing on Mustukovs with no opposition. Same chance on the other side for captain Jonathan Phillips, stopped by KIlleeen. At 33:38  Matt Marquardt completes a coast-to-coast serving Jonas Westerling for the 2-0 Steelers. In the last period the game becomes nervous, with less chances and more contacts. At 55 Killeen seals a satisfactory performance with a really reactive save on Roy. Steelers controls the game grabbing a bronze, deserved after all, for what seen on the ice in this weekend. For Renon the last place for the second year in a row, possibly with less expectations here in Minsk then last season at home. Looking for the glass half-full, Italian are again among the top four clubs

MVP: Cristiano Borgatello - Matt Marquardt

Renon/Ritten, finished fourth
