Even after the first game in the qualifying tournament in Füssen, the chances of a return to the Olympics for German ice hockey women were greatly reduced. On Thursday (11.11.21), national coach Tom Schadler, Austria’s team surprisingly lost 0: 3 (0: 1, 0: 1, 0: 1).
Without regular goalkeeper Jennifer Haro, who was infected with the coronavirus, the German team had a tough time, especially on the offensive, and were much more harmless in the majority. “We didn’t get along well with the aggressive playing style of the Austrians and were not present in front of the goal,” Schadler said.
Now against Italy and Denmark
Germany’s next opponent is Italy on Saturday. They face Denmark at the end on Sunday. Women’s last ice hockey was at the Winter Games in Sochi in 2014. The men’s team of the German Ice Hockey Federation has already qualified for the Olympics to be held in Beijing in February.
