Match report

Mannheimer HC are through to the FINAL4 of the EHL for the very first time after they won their German derby battle with Uhlenhorst Mulheim in a shoot-out.

It was played at an outrageous pace from start to finish with Mannheimer bursting into a 2-0 lead and they also led 3-2 and 4-3 but each time, Lukas Windfeder forced Uhlenhorst back into the tie.

It took just six minutes for Mannheim to take the lead as Lucas Vila got on the end of Philipp Huber’s cross. Timm Haase then made it two from a corner move as Gonzalo Peillat stepped away to the right as a distraction.

Windfeder tied the game up with two corners – in the 17th and 27th minutes – with some supreme power and it might have been even better but for Jan Schiffer’s volleyed effort being disallowed.

Vila restored Mannheim’s lead following a brilliant near post flick from a swift breakaway move via Danny Nguyen and Felix Schues.

Windfeder’s third drag came five minutes into the second half while Timm Herzbruch was being kept reasonably quiet by Linus Muller – albeit while picking up a green and yellow card for his troubles.

Haase got MHC back in front yet again with 10 minutes to go with a deflection from the top of the circle. Yet again, Windfeder found an equaliser from the set piece after a chain of three corners, making it 4-4 with seven minutes to go.

It meant a shoot-out where Mannheim scored a perfect four from four while goalkeeper Lukas Stumpf made two saves, securing a 4-2 success in the shoot-out.

“The news came up yesterday but I knew a few months ago that I wanted to stay in Mannheim,” Lucas Vila said a day after it was confirmed he has extended his contract for another year with the club.

“We have a really good team, strong coaches that work really hard and the team is always aiming for more. They were champions two year ago but we want more in the EHL.

“This game was like a rollercoaster; we started really well, going two goals up and we had to defend too much at the end. It was a nice game to watch – both teams played well and the shoot-outs always just go to the side who is a bit sharper!”
