- Biel makes up for a 2:5 deficit at Ajoie in the final third, but then loses after a penalty shootout.
Freiburg – Geneva 7:1
After 4 games in the new season, champions Geneva-Servette can definitely be said to have had a false start. Away at Fribourg-Gottéron it wasn’t just the 3rd defeat in the 4th game. After the 1:6 on Tuesday in Lausanne, there was a 1:7 in Freiburg and thus another slap. The middle third was disastrous for the people of Geneva. Within 11:48 minutes, Marcus Sörensen (2), Jacob De La Rose, Mauro Jörg and Chris DiDomenico turned a 2-1 lead into a 7-1 lead. The change of goalkeeper in Geneva from Gauthier Descloux to Robert Mayer after the 1:5 didn’t help either. The shooting statistics show how clearly Geneva was inferior: Reto Berra was only tested 14 times in the Gottéron goal.
Bern – SCL Tigers 7:0
Langnau clearly lost in the derby against Bern for the third time in a row after 3:7 in Lausanne and 1:6 at home against Davos. Tigers goalie Luca Boltshauser had a particularly bitter evening. After just 4:35 minutes he had to clear his box and make way for Stéphane Charlin. Boltshauser had to allow himself to be defeated three times before he was substituted. Julius Honka (2nd), Martin Frk (5th) and Joona Luoto (5th) ensured a perfect SCB start. Dominik Kahun and Benjamin Baumgartner in the second period and again Luoto and Kahun in the final third made the sweeping victory perfect. Remarkable: SCB did not commit a single penalty in the entire game.
Ajoie – Biel 6:5 nP
On Tuesday, the Bielers suffered their first defeat of the season in a 4-1 defeat at the ZSC Lions. During the guest appearance at Ajoie, another zero was announced after 40 minutes. In the starting third, Jere Sallinen and Toni Rajala turned a 0-1 deficit into a 2-1 lead. The Jurassians were able to turn the game around thanks to goals from Jonathan Hazen and Lilian Garessus. Gregory Sciaroni and Kevin Fey increased the score to 5:2 in the second period. But the Bielers came back again. Yannick Rathgeb, Damien Brunner and Luca Cunti shot their team into extra time. In the penalty shootout, Thibault Frossard and Guillaume Asselin scored for Ajoie. Keeper Tim Wolf kept his box clean and secured the extra point for the hosts.
Ambri – train 1:3
EVZ also achieved its second win of the season. Lino Martschini put the Central Swiss team on the road to victory in the Leventina after just under 11 minutes. In the second half, Ambri was able to equalize through Johnny Kneubuehler (29′), but Attilio Biasca gave Zug another lead before the second siren. The Biancoblu’s efforts to equalize in the final third remained fruitless. Instead, Fabrice Herzog made everything clear with the Empty-Netter 121 seconds before the end.
Davos – Lakers 4:1
The HCD has definitely arrived in the new season. 3 days after the 6-1 win at the SCL Tigers, the Graubünden team doubled at home against Rapperswil-Jona. The guests started the game better, but practically conceded the 0-1 with the first shot by Joakim Nordström (4th). As a result, Davos controlled the game without any major problems; the Lakers remained too harmless. In the middle third the hosts pulled ahead thanks to goals from Valentin Nussbaumer (28th) and Chris Egli (33rd). Maxim Noreau’s connecting goal (56th) came too late from Rappi’s point of view, Leon Bristedt put the lid on the empty goal in the 58th minute.
Kloten – Lausanne 2:3
After two defeats at the start of the season, Lausanne has continued its upward trend in the airport city. With his 3-2 winning goal in the 59th minute, Makai Holdener ensured the Vaudois team’s third complete success. Kloten had previously been able to react to a deficit twice and score the equalizer. After a successful start to the season in Davos, the Zurich team had to admit defeat for the third time in a row.
