Clashes occurred between the players several times, and the Storhamar Sverre Ronningen player received a penalty kick in the middle of the last period because he hit the referee’s assistant who tried to separate him from LIK player Gabin Fell. Television images clearly showed that Phil was the one who hit the referee.
– I don’t understand what he’s doing. “The linesman thinks I hit him, but I’m not that stupid,” Ronningen told TV 2.
It was 2-1 for Storhamar, who took the lead first through Adrian Saxrud Danielsen and then through Andreas Martinsen. Peter Quenneville made it 3-1, but Alexander Reichenberg immediately pulled it back with his second goal of the game, creating new tension.
Sander Deling Horwood set the score in an empty cage on the padding.
