Aussies Claim First Win at WFC 2014

The Australian Men’s team played their first WFC match against the 9th ranking Russian team. On paper and at the bookies everything was going Russia’s way, but there is nothing us Aussies love more than going in as the underdog.

Russia came out of the gates strong scoring the first goal just after the second minute of the game. This had the Aussie boys on the back foot early but only seemed the spur them on to push harder for each other and as a team. It took another 10 agonising minutes before the back of the net was found again with Carl Hammarlund making short work of a Jonathon Veron pass to even up the game. A flurry of goals then ensued with Russia scoring to take the lead again, the Aussie boys without missing a beat hitting back 11 seconds later, thanks to a Tim Boteler goal assisted by Petr Prazan. Russia then took the lead for the third time in the match only minutes later. From this point it became all Team Australia taking the lead for the first time in the match and what would be for the rest of the game. For the next 3 minutes of the period the Aussie boys took charge, scoring as many goals in minutes with goals to, Tim Boteler (x2) and Jeremy Monckton, with the assists going to Shaun Frazer (x2) and Nick Moran. Russia was trying to keep in touch scoring a late goal to end the period 5-4 but the momentum was definitely with the Australian Team.

The second period started with Australia showing the Russians how it’s done with Jon and Carl again linking in a power play to make the Russians play for their mistake, taking the game to a 6-4 Australia’s way. This goal must have hurt the Russians as the came out looking for revenge getting only 14 seconds later with a great goal to bring to game back to just 1 between the teams. The Australian team responded with 2 more goals with Michael Woods linking with Tim hardy and then Nick Moran working with Jon Veron. The Russian then had a moment of insanity with same bad play leading to an own goal, giving the Australians a commanding 9 – 5 lead. However the Russians again came back strong in the last minutes with the period to leave it at 9 – 6 with only the last period to play.

Russian started the final period with the same drive they started the first, not wanting to lose to the under ranked Australians. This drive saw them find the back of the net again in under 2 minutes giving the Russians hope that they could come back. However Nick and Jono had other plans with Jono setting up Nick for his second goal and Jono’s 3rd assists of them game showing that the Australians were not going to let this game slip out of their hands. These 2 proved to be the Australian dynamic duo, linking for the third time only minutes later for Nicks 3rd goal of the game and Jono’s 4th assist taking the game to 11 – 7 but with 14 minutes still left in the game it was still a long way to the finish line. The Aussie boys knowing that they would have to play hard to hold onto this lead forced some unruly mistakes by the Aussies with the boys giving away 4 penalties in the last 10 minutes to give them Russians some hope. The Russians capitalised twice scoring 2 power play goals bring the game to 11 – 9 with a couple of minutes to go. The final penalty saw the Aussies give away a penalty shot to the Russians which could have really turned the game, but the Russians couldn’t capitalise. The game ended 11 – 9 an extremely well deserved win to the Aussie boys.
