The second game of the daty between Vitkovice and Sparta Prague in the men’s final was very dramatic as well. The team from Ostrava took the lead during the last seconds of the opening period. Sparta was quickly able to tie the game, but Vitkovice scored again and it was the eight minutes before the end of the second period when goalie Benes might have made the one mistake (left to goal cage to kick the ball and did not hit the ball) which could lead to an early decision of the game – Zubek very easily scored then that important goal for a two goal lead by Vitkovice.
