Fajdiga scores four goals, Slovenes edge Britain

19.05.2018 | Vojtěch Balon

In the battle for the 9th place in Veterans, Slovenia beat Great Britain 4:6. The Slovenes scored three shorthanded goals and were powered to the win by a four-goal performance from Aleš Fajdiga.

Early on in the game, Great Britain was on the powerplay, but conceded paradoxically. Igor Mubi got on a breakaway and beat Wood from the slot. Four minutes later, the game was tied again, thanks to a nice tip-in from Michael Newberry.

In the 12th minute, Wightman hit the post with his shot, and to make matters worse for Team GB, the Slovenes started scoring goals in a torrid pace. Aleš Fajdiga, Andrej Becl and Aleš Fajdiga again beat wood to make it 4:1 Slovenia. Late in the first half, Marcel Maly scored to create a glimmer of hope for Britain.

Eight minutes before the final buzzer, Aleš Fajdiga gave Slovenia back a three-goal lead after another shorthanded goal, with which he completed the hattrick. However, Marcel Maly kept Great Britain in the game - 5:3.

Maly had a golden opportunity to cut the deficit to one, but he did not convert on a penalty shot. Shortly after, Aleš Fajdiga scored yet again, and instead of 5:4, the score was 6:3. In the very last minute, Marcel Maly eventually did complete his hattrick, but that was when it had been already certain that Slovenia will secure the 7th spot.
