It was not the evening of the Romands in the National League. Freiburg was beaten by Davos (3-2), Biel by Langnau (3-1) and Ajoie by Lugano (5-2).
Friborg and Bienne, similar trajectories. The two clubs chained a fourth loss in a row. In their lair, the Dragons yielded in the third period on a nice effort from Marc Wieser who dominated Ryan Gunderson in the 56th.
Before that, a double from Matej Stransky had allowed Graubünden to hold the shock of the opener from Killian Mottet (18th). But the beautiful story on the bench of the Dragons, it is of course the 2-2 signed Kevin Etter (36th). The young 19-year-old Friborg striker therefore scored his first National League goal in his first match. But the responsibility of goalkeeper Aeschlimann is clearly tainted.
That said, Davos did not steal their success by shooting 12 times on goal during the third period, against only four attempts for the men of Christian Dubé.
Biel no longer wins
Biel had the opportunity to raise their heads against Langnau at home, but Antti Törmänen’s players tripped over the carpet (1-3). And here is a fourth consecutive defeat for the Seelanders as they celebrated the return of Joren van Pottelberghe to the Biel cages.
Gaëtan Haas’s teammates can bite their gloves, they who shot 44 times at Charlin’s cage. The Tigers played it all the way, taking advantage of their first power-play. Pesonen went there with his double for the Emmentalois.
It should be noted that Matthias Rossi’s first steps with Langnau did not go well. Facing Fribourg, the former player of Gottéron had touched the knee of Marcus Sörensen. Fortunately for the Swede, the latter did not miss a match. This time Rossi went straight for Luca Cunti. The referees returned the culprit to the locker room.
Lugano had no problem overcoming Ajoie. The Ticino quickly led 5-0 before the Jurassians managed to reduce the score late in the game. Lugano seems to be clinging to 10th place.
Zug is slowly moving up the rankings. The double Swiss champion dominated Bern 4-1 and is only two points behind Fribourg, 6th.
And finally in the Zurich derby, Zurich managed to leave the suburbs with the three points. A 4-3 success which owes a lot to Simon Bodenmann. The future ex-Lions player scored twice.
