WILC Recap: Czech Republic 20, Australia 11

Although they finished in the top four last time around in Prague, the Czech Republic finished 7th overall at WILC 2015 with the win over the Aussies.

First Quarter

Both teams came up fired up and the first quarter was a fairly even match. In the first minute each team found themselves with a penalty, holding and unsportsmanlike conduct.

Throughout the quarter they would fight a chippy battle and exchange goals but Australia managed to keep the Czech Republic from taking the lead and would end tied 5-5.

Second Quarter

The intensity of the game continued into the second quarter trading roughing and cross checking penalties.

Czech’s Dominik Pešek would come up big and lead the offense, scoring a hat trick in the quarter and leading his team to score 2 points to Australia’s 1. Czech Republic took the lead 20 min into the second half and finished it with a two point lead 9-7.

Third Quarter

The penalties took a backseat in the third quarter and good play ensued with each team playing hard and working for goals.

By scoring 4 goals to Australia’s two, the Czech slowly extended their 2 point lead to 4. The Australian team looked like they were starting to fade as the quarter ended, 13-9 Czech Republic.

Fourth Quarter

The final quarter was a runaway for the Czech Republic. Surprisingly, there were only three penalties in the remaining 15 minutes as the frustrated Australian team fought to stay in the game.

Devastatingly, the Czech tidal wave hit and ran the score to 17-9 before Australia’s Jesse Whinnen had his unassisted goal, 17-10 Czech Republic.

Australia’s Caleb Hall would finish his hat trick but Czech’s Kamil Trhlik would score unassisted in for last goal of the game with 12 seconds left. Czech Republic finished with the victory, 20-11.
