The Danish force not enough against Czech Republic

12/12/2014 7:02:08 PM -

It was a match played against one goal. Czeck Republic was too hard of a challenge for Denmark, who lost 5-1 (1-0, 4-1, 0-0) despite self-sacrificing defense. 

Denmark handled the attacks from Czech Republic well in the first period due to a strong defense and a great goalkeeper, Mike Trolle Wede. Czech Republic only scored once in the first 20 minutes.

In the second period, Czech Republic got paid for their game. Four straight goals in the first ten minutes gave the Czechs a comfortable lead. Denmark also showed that they could do more than defend. First, there was a shot on the crossbar, before Brian Jenssen, with a bit of luck, placed Marko Krogsgaard’s shot and scored 5-1.

The third period looked like the others, with the Czech Republic controlling the game and with a Mike Trolle Wede on fire; he made a few very close saves. There were no goals in the third period which means the match was even during two periods. 

This victory means that Czech Republic plays against Finland in the semi-final tomorrow. Denmark plays against Norway in a derby, fighting for places fifth through eight.
