Our hometown team couldn't lean on their superstars, like Granovskiy, Ryazantsev, Vikulin, Bondarenko and Starikov to boot, who had been tested positive for COVID-19 before the very first game of the season. Our hometown team were off to a good start, though. Mikhail Tyuko scored two minutes into the game and Yevgeniy Korev cemented the lead at the 20th minute of the first halftime. 2-0. Nobody expected what happened next. Out of the blue our squad began making multiple mistake in the D-zone that cost them four goals in a row. Frankly, Denis Rysev, our netminder couldn't be faulted too much on any goal. 2-4 was transformed into a one-goal deficit when Korev connected for SKA-Neftyanik prior to the intermission.
