Canton Ticino's two top ice hockey teams, Ambri and Lugano, have drawn 2-2 in the semi-finals of the Continental Cup.
Saturday's all-Swiss encounter was part of a four-team semi-final round with only one side progressing to January's finals in Zurich.
The two teams drew 1-1 in the first period, Ambri took the second 1-0, and Lugano won the third by the same margin.
Ambri - who have won the Continental Cup for the last two years - are currently head of the group ahead of Sunday's round.
Variously referred to as the European Stanley Cup or ice hockey's equivalent of football's UEFA Cup, the Continental Cup is second only to the Super Cup in terms of European club hockey.
Regardless of how Ambri and Lugano fare, the Swiss are guaranteed at least one team in January's finals, with the league champions, Zurich Lions, given an automatic place as the tournament's hosts.
