Ice hockey championship in Transcarpathia has already started
December 5-6, the first round of the Hockey Championship of Transcarpathia 2015-2016 took place. The intense competition lasted for two days. The matches "Uzhgorodski Vovky" - "Spartak" and "Synevyr" - "Shakhtarski Barsy" took place. The teams played three periods of 25 minutes. Despite the fact that this year there is an agreement between the hockey players on the limitation of the power struggle, both games were intense and somewhat aggressive. Several players received minor injuries.
On the first day, "Uzhgorodski Vovky" played against "Spartak." The latter won with the score 4:2. The captain of the team "Uzhgorodski Vovky" Serhiy Kovacs said that this game was difficult for them, because it was the first one this season.
This time, "Synevyr" played against "Shakhtarski Barsy." The game ended with a score of 7:2 in favor of the latter.
In particular, the coach and member of the team "Shakhtarski Barsy" Oleksandr Dmitriev said: "I think hockey players still find it difficult to accept that this season an entirely non-contact game is encouraged, because hockey is a power sport. Therefore, we must learn to hold back. Though there were some violations, the game cannot be called "dirty".
