Slovaks have a winner now! Bombardéri overcome TPS in B15 final
Four nations have won gold in this year's Prague Games so far: Switzerland, Czechia, Finland, and Slovakia as well now. (Quite surprisingly, Sweden is still waiting for a win.) In the B15 category, Bombardéri were absolutely invincible as they won all of their eight games in the tournament – and they ended four of these games with a score in the double digits. The final was no exception to their winning streak as they beat the Finnish team TPS in a 4:2 game.
The final was no easy game for the Slovaks though. They met their equals in the Finns. Bombardéri could rely on excellent playing skill, body-checking, and individual performances. The outcome was especially prominent during the first half, when they scored three goals. The second half was much keener as the teams each scored a goal. As the end drew near, with a score of 4:2 with the Slovaks in lead, TPS bet on power-play. A few threatening shots came out of the move, but no goals, which lead to the Slovaks earning a prized first place.
