Medvescak's U20 team ended the regular EBYSL season on a high note. They won their seventh game in a row in Innsbruck (2:3) and can be confident as they step into the first playoffs for the Bears in the past three years be it in the EBEL juniors, the U18, or U20.
Even though the home team was two goals ahead after the second period, Medvescak's players took only five minutes in the final period to reduce the point gap, tie the game, and then get to the winning goal. First Luka Vukoja made it 2:1 in the 45th minute, followed in the 50th minute by Matija Milicic for the tie, and then Damir Bukovic's grab of three points in the 52nd minute.
The EBYSL playoffs begin on Saturday, February 28th, and the Bears will play their first game at home in the Ice Hall of Dom Sportova at 5:00PM. Medvescak's quarterfinal opponent is still undetermined, and depends on who Group A's leading team Red Bull Salzburg picks as their opponent.
