DEB Women Bow Out in Quarterfinals of World Championships


The German women’s national ice hockey team was eliminated in the quarter-finals of the World Championships in Canada.

The selection of the German Ice Hockey Federation lost 0:3 (0:1, 0:1, 0:1) against the two-time Olympic champion USA in Brampton, but showed a more than respectable performance against the big favorite. The sovereign quarter-final entry had already been a success.

“We’ll just continue as before,” attacker Nicola Eisenschmid said before the match. And that’s what the DEB team did against the Americans, who had only lost to Olympic champions Canada (3:4 nP) in their preliminary round group.

Despite the clear lead of 52 to 18 shots on goal, the US girls needed two power play situations (20th, 33rd) to take the lead against the bravely fighting DEB women. With the third goal (48th), the DEB women let themselves be duped in their own majority.

The team of national coach Thomas Schädler can still say goodbye to Canada with their heads held high. The German team, which is in the middle of a rebuild, had secured the goal of staying up in the league with three wins in the preliminary round and was rewarded as runners-up in the group with a cracking duel against the nine-time world champion.
