In the 12th round of the ice hockey league Ambri beat the Langnau Tigers 2-1. Due to this victory Ambri remains top of the league with 17 points, closely followed by Lugano with 16 points and Fribourg with 14 points.

The Kloten Flyers beat Rapperswil Jona 6-1, which marks the highest victory for Kloten this season. For Rapperswil, who was obviously the weaker team of the match, this was the third defeat in a row.

Kloten's Lindemann, who was the only player to score two goals in the match, had an easy task to increase his team's score as Rapperswil made too many mistakes.

Lugano meanwhile was able to beat Chur, even though the Ticinese team had a slow start. At the beginning the match seemed to be the third defeat for Lugano in a row, however, the Ticino team managed to improve and win 4-3 over Chur. With this defeat Chur will remain bottom of the league table.
