First match is a rocky start
Turkmenistan’s national hockey team conceded to Chinese Taipei after overtime, with a minimum score of 4: 5. In the course of the meeting, the Turkmen team lost to the opponent with a score of 3:0, but during the third period, bravely withstanding the attacks of the opponent, rushed to the attack, as a result of regular time equalized and transferred the game into overtime.
At the beginning of the extra time, which, as we know, goes till the first scored puck, Taipei, having caught a moment at some point of confusion in the ranks of Turkmen hockey players, immediately hacked the puck, literally snatching the victory from them.
You can say, of course, that one must spoil before spinning, I think that’s the way it is. But you can also praise the players for their resistance to a score of 0:3 and the first point earned, which they won due to the fact that they were able to snatch a draw by the end of regular time.
This meeting was the debut for the team of Bayram Allayarov in the third division of the World Championship.
The competition takes place in the capital of Bulgaria – Sofia and will last until April 28. The national team of Turkmenistan is waiting for matches with athletes from South Africa, Bulgaria, Luxembourg and Turkey.
