After just 58 seconds, Shaw put the guests in the lead. In the first third the Hungarians were able to add two more goals, Dornbirn scored once. In the middle section it continued to be turbulent. Although the Bulldogs quickly shortened to 2: 3, AVS then pulled away. After the second third it was 8: 4 for the guests, where Shaw scored two more times.
In the final section, both teams shifted down a gear. In the 51st minute of the game, however, the hosts were able to shorten the game to 5-8 with a goal from Nikita Jevpalovs. As a result, the eleventh in the table from Vorarlberg could not avert the fifth defeat in a row.

Collapse overshadows the weekend
The weekend in the ICE Hockey League was overshadowed on Friday by the collapse of guest player Boris Sadecky. He was treated in the intensive care unit of the hospital, the match was canceled.

According to a current statement by the Bratislava Capitals, Boris is in “stable but serious condition.” “We wish Boris a speedy recovery,” wrote the Pressburger Capitals on the social networks. Their Saturday game against Pustertal has been postponed.
