Match report Switzerland - Singapore, Preliminary Round

Switzerland outclasses Singapore

Switzerland qualified for the quarterfinals by beating Singapore 35:0. Tomorrow evening’s match at 19:30 between Switzerland and Estonia will decide the group winners.

It took until the 9th minute for Switzerland to open the scoring against rank outsiders Singapore. Bichsel’s long-range shot opened the floodgates. What followed was in essence a lengthy powerplay, goals on an almost minutely basis. On nine occasions, the Swiss scored two goals within 60 seconds of each other. Goals thirteen and fourteen came within just 17 seconds of each other.

Thus, the score after 40 minutes was 23:0, after 60 it was 35:0. Consolations goals were on the cards for Singapore twice in the second period; on both occasions a lone Singapore player charged Pascal Meier’s goal, and twice the keeper came on top each time. On the first occasion, however, the rebound shot had to be skillfully cleaered off the line by Wittwer. The brave Singaporeans had little else to celebrate.
