In the German Women’s Ice Hockey League (TFEL), the Esperan Juniors Berlin women’s team finished fourth with two round victories over their direct rival, Mad Docs, in Mannheim. The Polar Bears won 5: 4 in the small ice of the SAP arena on Saturday and won 6: 0 on Sunday. Head coach Daniel Bartell’s team qualified for the finals on March 13 and 14, 2021 at the Federal Performance Center in Fusan.
A complete roller coaster ride to the nerves of Berliners on Saturday read very confidently and clearly. They scored two goals from young national player Annabella Stersik and one goal from importer Stephanie Kerluk (with one goal) 3: 1 until the 32nd minute. But then the Mannheim team came and changed the game to 3: 4 in ten minutes.

But Berlin retreated from the silence. Defender Francisco Brendal equalized in the 48th minute to make it 4: 4. Then he said: “We got off to a great start in the game. Of course, falling behind is not easy, you can feel a little nervous. But because we knew we were the best team, we did not give up, we were able to get our game back.”
Two minutes and 55 seconds before the end, Theresa Nutson stood alone on the Berlin women’s new trump card. American striker Mannheim appeared in the arena for the first time on Saturday playing in the final season. The Polar Bears signed four weeks ago for goals like 5: 4.
On Sunday, the 24-year-old importer immediately followed suit. Just 45 seconds later he took a 1-0 lead and a 2-0 lead in the 10th minute. It was worn by his defense attorney Brendel. The team has been marching ever since. “Our first two fast goals got us better in the game, so after two-thirds it was 6-0, which makes it a little easier to get to the last third,” says Brendel, who was born in Augsburg. “Of course anything can happen in ice hockey, which is why we had to focus until the last.”
Before the finals, Memmingen now have two long-distance games
Goalkeeper Lily Gunder carried the Mannheimer shots, admittedly planted behind, the back was clean throughout the match, with former captains Anna-Maria Nickich (30th), Annabella Stersik (32nd), Paula Nix (34th) and Stephanie Kerluk (37th). .
There are two more meaningless away games in Memmingen next weekend before the final. Two good tests for the final match games. ECTC Memmington ERC Ingolstadt and ESC Planck are also eligible. In the direct fight between the two best teams, the Berlin women’s semifinal opponents will also be determined next weekend.
