Exciting and surprising semifinals

The 2nd BLNO (Bundesliga Nord/Ost) playoffs took place on the 24th of May 2014 in Braunschweig, Germany. In the semifinals, the BTHC Guardians went up against Victoria Berlin and won with 9:4 what was described as a very brutal match. Players of both teams got out of the match covered in bruises wherever protection failed to cover their skin, an obvious sign of how much both teams wanted to advance into the finals.

In the end, the Guardians managed to get well ahead and take the boys from Berlin out of the game with a difference in goals that Victoria Berlin would not be able to bounce back from.
