Lugano earn ice hockey semi final place

A goalmouth scare for Lugano but they scraped through to the semi finals


Lugano survived a late scare against Fribourg Gottéron in the quarter finals of the Swiss ice hockey championships, winning their fifth and decisive tie 3-2 in overtime.

The two teams were tied 2-2 at the end of normal time. Fribourg missed a golden opportunity to win the game with just seconds to go, but the chance went begging and the match moved into overtime where Lugano snatched a quick winner.

If Fribourg had put away their chance, they would have pulled the best of seven series back to 3-2. As it was, Lugano's overtime winner clinched the series 4-1.

Lugano will now face Bern in the semi finals which start next week. Kloten and Zurich Lions meet in the other semi final.
