World Championship in Canada: Germany at the Women's Ice Hockey World Championship in the quarterfinals

Germany's ice hockey women surprisingly reached the quarterfinals at the World Championships in Canada. On Tuesday, the team of national coach Thomas Schädler won 2:1 (2:0, 0:1, 0:0) against Hungary at the end of the preliminary round and will now meet the top favorites USA on Thursday (7.30 p.m. / MagentaSport).

With their goals in Brampton, Ronja Hark (11th minute) and Nicola Eisenschmid (20th) ensured the third preliminary round victory in the fourth game. Hungary was only successful through Reka Dabasi (21st) shortly after the start of the middle section. Otherwise, the German defense was safe with the good goalkeeper Sandra Abstreiter.

Germany had previously beaten Sweden (6-2) and France (3-0) and only lost to Finland (0-3). Staying in the league is almost more important than reaching the quarter-finals, where Germany is a blatant outsider on Thursday - the declared goal at this World Cup. There had previously been doubts about structural problems in German women's ice hockey.
