Corona Brașov brings a new title of champions to our city, winning the fourth title in ice hockey in the history of the club (and the fifth in the hockey history of Brașov).
This confirms once again the hockey tradition of our city, the trophy of champions of Romania remaining in the place where the first ice hockey championship in the history of Romania was played (won by the Brașovia Brașov team).
The “wolves” who were also “en-titre” champions of Romania, proved a special character and managed to defend their title on the ice, in front of the SC Miercurea-Ciuc team.
Even if they had been led 0-2 “in general” after the first two games and even if at the first break of the game 3 Couc’s officials were already “polishing” the champions trophy, preparing for the awards because their team was leading 3-0 , the “wolves” did not give up for a second and managed to “detour” the situation and bring this decisive game to Brașov.
A game for history and for the enrichment of the sports record of our city.
And our players treated it as such and came in very motivated on the ice.
