SC Miercurea Ciuc – Corona Brașov 4-3 SO (1-1, 2-2, 0-0, 1-0)

Corona Brașov returns with a point from the first move of the season in the Erste League (and the national championship), from Miercurea Ciuc.

The hosts opened the scoring in the 2’42 minute by Canadian Josh Shalla.

Our team managed to equalize in the 9’52 minutes, in PK, through a powerful shot of Pavlo Borysenko, served ideally by Gergo Biro (also contributed by Canadian J.F. Plante).

Score after the first half: 1-1.

The first half of the second period belonged to the hosts, who split at 3-1 through Andrey Taratukhin (who took advantage of a double numerical superiority) and the Canadian Rod Pelley.

The reaction of the “wolves” did not delay and – in the 34’25” – Canadian defender Nelson Armstrong, assisted by Chase Harrison and Roberto Gliga, completed a numerical superiority with an unstoppable shot at the short corner.

In the 37’24” Pavlo Borysenko returns to Gergo Biro the service from the first goal and passes perfectly for 3-3.

Score after two halves: 3-3.

The third period was very hot but neither team managed to score, so they went into the O.T. 5 minutes.

In the O.T. the score remained unchanged, even though each team had numerical superiority.

Eventually the home team managed to award two of the three points to the shoot-out.

In the first break of the game there was the award ceremony and the award of the THL Cup for the U14 team of our club.

The two teams will meet, also at Miercurea Ciuc, on Tuesday, September 17, in a game that will only count for the national championship of Romania.
