14 games, seven opponents with different goals: while EA schongau, ESC geretsried and ESC dorfen are striving to stay in the bavarian league, ESC kempten, ESV buchloe, ESC vilshofen, ERSC amberg and the habfurt hawks are aiming for promotion to the fourth-highest german ice hockey league in the upcoming interlocking round. It will be a difficult underfranken – the motivation is very rough in all teams. ESC martin reichert has his thoughts before the opening game on friday evening against the mammoths of EA schongau. Mr. Reichert, a few days after the grouping, are you still disappointed about the two missed derbies against schweinfurt or are you looking forward to an exciting dovetailing round??
Martin reichert: for us as a club, of course, the economic factor has been an issue. Personally, it makes no difference to me whether we play schongau or schweinfurt.
