Neuberg Skates Past Marburg

The Neuberg Highlanders beat HDK Maribor, 5-2 (or 5:2 in Austrian lingo), on Sunday, Sept. 25 in Marburg, Slovenia.  The victory concluded my first Austrian road trip.  It was a rather short road trip, two hours, compared to the road trips I took at Quinnipiac University.

Marburg seemed way more talented than our last opponent, Team Turkey, as I was glancing across the ice at them during warm-ups.  They had more skill and more speed.  Both teams seemed evenly matched at the beginning of the first period.  I scored the first goal for the Highlanders, but Marburg came roaring back as it scored its first goal within seconds after mine.  The score remained even until my roommate, Courtney Bradley, popped one in.  My other roommate, Jessica Jenkins, scored the next goal.  Bradley sniped two more goals to produce her first hatrick as a Highlander.  Marburg added one more tally before the final buzzer.  For a full recap of the game, click here.

We return to action on Sunday, Oct. 2, as we travel to Klagenfurt, Austria to take on DEC Dragons Klagenfurt.  The puck is scheduled to drop at 12:30 p.m., or 6:30 a.m. in America.

bis zum nächsten Mal!
