World Cup in Bolzano: The opener goes to South Korea

The Ice Hockey World Championships of the 1st Division A in Bolzano have begun. In the opening game between South Korea and Slovenia, the Asians had the upper hand.

The first puck drop at the Ice Hockey World Championships in Bolzano took place at 12.30 p.m. South Korea and Slovenia faced each other. In the end, the Asians won 4-2.


Slovenia starts the game well. Villach legionnaire Robert Sabolic took the lead after 3.34:19 minutes. But before the half-time siren sounded for the first time, South Korea had turned the game around. 16-year-old defender Chang Yu Kong (17th) and Sang-Hoon Shin (2th) turned the tables with a double strike. Slovenia fought back and quickly equalized 2-23 after the restart. ICE striker Jaka Sodja (from Olimpija Ljubljana) was there after an assist from Miha Bericic (XNUMX').

South Korea secured the first 3 points at the World Cup in Bolzano.

However, South Korea did not allow themselves to be taken by surprise and completed their victory in the final third. Chong-Min Lee took advantage of a numerical advantage and put the Asians back in the lead (49th). Because Slovenia couldn't make a decisive impact, Sang Yeob Kim put a lid on it (56').
