In the end, however, the “red jackets” can prevail 1-0 after extra time (0-0, 0-0, 0-0, 1-0) and take revenge for last Tuesday’s defeat.
The game is characterized by high speed from the start, the South Tyroleans find their first chance through Findlay, but his shot only hits the crossbar (6th). On the other side, Irving saved his team from the goal when he fished a Ganahl shot on the near corner with a big save from the air (14th).
In the middle third both goalkeepers increase their workload, with the KAC finding the better chances. Strong (23rd) and again Ganahl (28th) fail with their top chances on the Bolzano goalie. Dahm also gets a lot to do and has to counteract Catenacci (24th), who fails in the breakaway, and Gazley (36th).
After both teams hardly take any risks in the final third and accordingly there are few chances to score, it goes into overtime. In the first Miceli fails alone in front of Dahm, in return, KAC veteran Koch asserts himself strong under pressure, pulls in front of the goal of Irving and defeats the Canadian in the short corner – 1-0 (63rd)!
The “otjacken” take revenge for the 2: 3 defeat last Tuesday and with 62 points they can push themselves back in front of the Vienna Capitals in third place. HC Bozen takes one point from Klagenfurt and is leader of the table with 68 points.

Salzburg gives a 2-0 lead out of hand
In the parallel game between EC Red Bull Salzburg and VSV, the “Bulls” lose a 2-0 lead and have to score 2: 3 after extra time (2: 0, 0: 2, 0: 0, 0: 1 ) take the next bankruptcy.
The Mozartstadt team dominated the first 20 minutes and, thanks to Paul Huber (5th) and Thomas Raffl (15th), took a well deserved 2-0 lead.
However, the Schlendrian creeps in in the middle section, especially on the defensive, and the VSV comes up again. First Schmidt sank a rebound in the orphaned goal (24th), only nine minutes later Salzburg goalie Eliasson had to get a seamless wrist shot by Collins out of the goal (33rd).
In the final section there are chances on both sides, but both Eliasson and VSV goalie Gudlevskis are vigilant and overtime has to be used in this game as well.
In the, Gudlevskis saved his team from defeat after a McIntyre shot with a Big Save, in return Mangene played a wonderful backhand pass to Collins, who turned his back to the goal at Eliasson and defeated the Swede with his backhand – 3: 2!
The VSV is still on the upswing with the win and is now ninth in the table with 38 points. Salzburg, on the other hand, has to accept the second bankruptcy in a row against a Carinthian club and holds 53 points and position five.
