Match summary here.

Even though Germany have a much bigger ranking than Estonia, the match was tough. During the first period lots of scoring chances were seen on both ends. Estonia even had a chance to score on power play, but they were inefficient. Both teams were almost equally strong, though some of Germany´s scoring chances were more dangerous. No goals were seen in the first period. During the second period, Estonia suffered a 5 minute penalty. Germany was able to score two goals. Estonia´s power play at the end of the period was not as fruitful as they were once again unable to score. Estonia´s first goal of the tournament was seen in the third period. Margit Keerutaja shot the ball past the German goalie. Germany started to shiver a bit and they made simple mistakes in their own defensive zone. Lucky for them, Estonia didn´t use them as the should´ve. Estonia fought until the end and even tried to play 6 against 5, but Germany won the match 2-1.
