Tampere – The hockey players of France beat Austria 2:1 in overtime at the World Championship in Tampere. The match of Group A was decided in 60:39 by Sacha Treille, who also played in the Czech Extraliga in the past. Two Canadian points were scored by Tim Bozon and Florian Chakiachvili.

The Austrians had the advantage of the power play right at the start, but they were unable to use it. In addition, Addamo, returning from the penalty bench, got into the break, but did not finish exactly. The same happened to defender Onno in the 7th minute.

The French were more active, but the goalkeeper Kickert was able to withstand a jam in the 13th minute. At the end of the first period, Austria was able to defend itself for 45 seconds in three against five, but Tim Bozon already opened the scoring in the continuing classic power play.

In the second half, Austria improved the movement and his Ylönen counterpart had much more work to do than Kickert. The goalkeeper with Finnish roots, however, coped with Rossi’s attempts and withstood dangerous situations in the middle of the match. In the 35th minute, Achermann was also sent off and France returned to the attacking third.

The Austrians got an ideal chance to equalize after a foul by Texier, who received a five-minute penalty for bumping into Heinrich’s goal post. They did not manage to create a significant chance for a long time, but in the 47th minute, Schneider moved Raffl into a good position and the Austrian captain beat Ylönen.

The French could decide in the end when Rossi and then Ganahl were expelled. In regular time, they played 52 seconds in five against three, but did not score a goal. They had the advantage of two players even 24 seconds into overtime, but they did not manage to score a goal even here. Tim Bozon just hit the post. In the continuing classic power play, Kickert already conceded when Treille beat Chakiachvili’s flowing shot.
