Chodov strongest in a tough quarter-final – 30.09.2016

The first quarter-final of the Champions Cup was played between Greåker (Norway) and Florbal Chodov (Czech Republic). Greåker fought well but Chodov were stronger in the end.

Chodov got a good start when Patrik Doza scored with less than a minute on the clock. In powerplay, five minutes later, Martin Koutny succeeded with his shot and Chodov had got themselves a 2-0 lead. And they were going to get lucky again with one more player on the field, when Dan Kasovsky extended their lead to 3-0.

Both teams showed aggressiveness but Greåker wasn´t as effective as Chodov when they got their chances. Joacim Rudman scored the first Norwegian goal of the game but the first period ended 4-1 for Chodov.

In the beginning of the second period Martin Isnes Kvisvik hit the net in powerplay. The answer from Chodov came only a few minutes later when Patrik Doza scored his second goal with a beautiful shot. Doza was successfull throughout the game, which ended 7-4 for Chodov.

- We knew that if we played at our best, we were most likely gonna win. We let some young guys play in the third period, and we played a little bit without discipline. I think we hade the game under control after ten minutes, says Chodov´s star player Doza.

Tomorrow they will be facing the Swedish champions Storvreta.

- We´re gonna try to do pretty much the same. Of course they are favourites but I think we can go in and surprise them if we play good.
