SOCHI, February 14. /ITAR-TASS/. The Czech ice hockey squad defeated the Latvian team 4-2 in the Group C match of the preliminary stage of competitions at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia’s Sochi.
The score of the match was opened with little over 10 minutes in the first period by Czech forward Martin Erat, but his goal remained unanswered for about three minutes, when Latvia’s Janis Sprukts put a netter for his team to draw the score at 1:1.
With less than two minutes remaining in the first period Latvia’s Mikelis Redlihs was sent to the penalty booth for high sticking and the Czechs used the advantage to finish the period 2-1 as NHL’s New Jersey Devils Jaromir Jagr scored another goal.
The Latvian team returned on the ice after the break to tie the score again when Herberts Vasiljevs put the puck in the Czech team’s goal protected by Ondrej Pavelec.
However, two more goals within a one-minute interval by Czechs Jakub Voracek and Marek Zidlicky left the score in the second period standing at 4-2, which eventually turned out to be the final score of the match as the third period of the game went scoreless.
This was the second game for both the Czech Republic and Latvia at the Sochi Olympics. The Czech team lost its first match 2-4 to Sweden and Latvia was earlier defeated by Switzerland 0-1.
