The Neuberg Highlanders remain undefeated in the Damen Eishockey Bundas Liga (DEBL) as they recorded their sixth consecutive league victory on Sunday.  The Highlanders beat HK Triglav Kranj, 4-3, in Kapfenberg.

Jennifer Pesendorfer scored the first goal for the Highlanders giving them a 1-0 lead at the start of the first period.  I scored the second goal for the Highlanders as I capitalized on a Triglav turnover and skated passed their final defender to score a lone goal.

In the second period, Pesendorfer found me in front of the net.  I passed the puck over to Courtney Bradley who sailed the puck passed the Triglav goaltender, extending the Highlanders' lead to 3-0.  Defender Bettina Angerer skated the puck into Triglav's zone, beating several defenders and shooting the puck between the goaltender's legs.  Triglav responded scoring their first goal of the game before the end of the period.  The Highlanders skated off the ice with a 4-1 lead at the end of the second.

The third period proved to be the Highlanders worst as Triglav scored in the opening minute of play.  With the score 4-2, Triglav scored yet another goal to cut the deficit by one goal.  The Highlanders were fortunate to hold the lead until the final buzzer and completed the game with another victory.
