In a 6-0 victory, the Neuberg Highlanders defeated DEC Dragons Klagenfurt in Klagenfurt on Sunday.  In the second minute of play, I scored the first goal to give my team a 1-0 lead.  My roommate, Courtney Bradley, scored the second goal.  Her shot was deflected and lifted high in the air.  The Dragons' goaltender could not set eyes on the puck.  From in the air, the puck landed softly behind the goaltender's back and into the net.  Anna Johann and I assisted on the play.  The Highlanders completed the first period with a 2-0 lead.

In the second period, Julia Willenshofer added another tally to the scoreboard, 3-0.  Bradley scored another goal, advancing the Highlanders to a 4-0 lead to end the period.

Bradley put another puck in the net in the third period, contributing her second hatrick of the season.  At the final buzzer, I made a pass to Sabrina Schlauer who shot the puck at the net.  The puck trickled past the goalie in the final seconds of the match.  Bradley led the Highlanders with three goals.  Willenshofer and I had one goal and two assists each.  Schlauer scored one goal and had one assist in the match while Johann contributed two assists.  Bianca Tendl and Lisa Marchl were credited with one assist each.

In the same day, two other matches in our league, the DEBL (Damen Eishockey Bundesliga), were completed.  EHV Sabres Wien II beat HDK Maribor, 9-1.  HK Triglav Kranj defeated Gipsy Girls Villach, 7-3.

The Neuberg Highlanders lead the league in points with 12.  EHV Sabres Wien II place second in league standings with nine points.  HDK Maribor and HK Triglav Kranji are tied in third with six points each.  Gipsy Girls Villach fall below them with three points.  DEC Dragons Klagenfurt and Team Turkey finish last in the standings with zero points each.


The Neuberg Highlanders return to action as we play Gipsy Girls Vallach on Oct. 26 at home in Kapfenberg.  The puck is scheduled to drop at 16.15, or 4:15 p.m.  That is 10:15 a.m. in USA's Eastern Standard Time!
