Germany won the game in overtime against USA

12/11/2014 4:22:42 PM -

The Germans, who lost the penalty shots against Denmark late last night, played a tough match against a hungry USA. Nothing could seperate the two teams during normal time and the Germans won in sudden death with 5-6 (1-1, 2-2, 2-2, 0-1).

The Americans were hungry from start and also scored the first goal thanks to Mattias Hansen after just under seven minutes. Then Karl Förare had an excellent opportunity to increase the lead, but Germany's goalkeeper Janek Kohler saved and with four minutes left the Germans evened the score thanks to Maximilian Falkenberger.

The teams continued to play equal in the second period. USA once again took the lead when Karl Förare finally scored on Kohler. The Germans replied through Alexander Burmeister and Janos Broker to 2-3 but Robin Brown evened the score for USA before the period ended.

The Germans took some control of the match in the beginning of the third period and got a 3-5 lead when Falkenberger and Broker scored their second goals in the match. Mattias Hansen was also a two-time scorer when he evened out the score with nine minutes left. USA and especially Alexander McVey fought to even the score with only four minutes left and sudden death awaited.

In overtime Jesse Andersson got an unnecessary penalty after only 20 seconds. USA got through the Germans power play, but just as the team was back to full strenght Dominic Mucha passed to a free Alexander Burmeister who scored 5-6 in sudden death.
Germany will meet Slovakia in the fight for 9th place and USA will play against Canada in a derby for 11th and 12th place.
