UAE oust Balkans team 9:5 at Christmas Amateur Ice Hockey Tournament in Minsk

On January 6, we will learn the finalists of the XIII Christmas International Amateur Ice Hockey Tournament for the prize of the President. One of the matches has already finished today.

The match between the teams of the UAE team and the Balkans ended about an hour ago. Hockey players from the Persian Gulf defeated the Swiss yesterday and today again won 9:5, this time against the Balkan team, consisting of players from eight countries. The latter have not had a victory at this tournament. 

A match Russia v Germany began at three o'clock at the small rink of Chizhovka Arena. For now the score is 5:0 in favor of Russia. Both teams will not enter the final, so the match is only a consolation for them. For both the main goal is now to win.

Belarus will play the final group game against Switzerland, who have one victory at the tournament.

The final will be played on January 7, when the runners-up from each group will contest bronze medals, while winners of the two groups will meet in the final to compete for gold.
