Medical students came to cheer on our hockey team
As part of HC MUNI's initiative to involve one of the faculties in the organization of each of the home games of this year's university league, the medics went out to play hockey on Wednesday, 29th November. However, they did not bring luck to the Masaryk hockey team.
Masaryk University hockey players playing under the banner of HC MUNI entered this year's university hockey league with ambitions on and off the ice. For each of the home games they approached one of the faculties involved in the organisation and promotion. For the Faculty of Medicine, the game of the tenth round fell against the team of the University of Technology and Economics in České Budějovice - Black Dogs Budweis. The students from IFMSA prepared an educational presentation of the CoCo project, i.e. breast and testicular self-examination, and part of the entrance fee was donated to the Medical Association for the construction of a memorial to body donors for the Donate (yourself) campaign.
Professor Martin Repko, the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of Masaryk University, opened the evening with an honorary bull and the match promising a goal feast could begin. From the beginning the South Bohemians confirmed the role of the favourite, which has five of its players in the top ten most productive players in the competition, and at the same time the strongest defence, but their goal scoring ambitions were long curbed by HC MUNI goalkeeper Filip Král. For the first time, the score moved after an inconspicuous action in the thirteenth minute, when the visiting Hrůša pulled the puck out of the air on the blue line and placed his tap-in exactly to the bar.
Budweiser added two more goals in the second period and when the Bears failed to use a power play at the end of the period, the game was tied. The Black Dogs, on the other hand, capitalized on their numerical advantage and after Matouš Masopust completed his hat trick at the beginning of the third period, the game seemed to be definitely decided. The most productive player of HC MUNI Tadeáš Jakubec responded to the goal request of more than two hundred fans by adding Jan Morev to his goal in the 48th minute in 29 seconds. Masarycka!" did not come, not even during the five-on-three advantage, during which the Bears managed to grip their opponent uncomfortably. In the last act, the only thing worth mentioning was the exclusion of the home runner Jan Gonos, who added a personal penalty to his two minor penalties in the form of a suspension for the rest of the game when he was too aggressive in the opponent's goal area, which was the victim of one of the referees.
The Black Dogs Budweis strengthened their position at the top of the university hockey league table with a 4:2 victory, while the HC MUNI Bears continue to struggle shooting and therefore also in the results and remain seventh, one point behind their city rivals from VUT, who, however, played one extra game. After the trip to Pilsen on December 6, the next HC MUNI derby home game will be against the Cavaliers on Wednesday, December 13, at 7:30 p.m., again in the Sportcentrum Lužánky hockey hall.
