MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. The Russian Bandy Federation’s (RBF) Disciplinary Committee ruled on Tuesday to suspend the coaches of two national clubs for two and a half years and impose fines on both teams over their outrageously unsporting self-goal match last Sunday.
The Russian Super League match in the northern city of Arkhangelsk ended on Sunday in an 11-9 win for Baikal-Energiya against Irkutsk’s local club, Vodnik. The match results, however, were later cancelled as both teams put a total of 20 goals into their own nets in the second half of the game following a scoreless first half.
The RBF’s commission imposed a penalty of 300,000 rubles (over $5,170) on each club adding that further sanctions would be announced on March 1 in regard to Vodnik’s chief manager Dmitry Minin, head coach Nikolai Yarovich and Baikal-Energiya’s player Oleg Pivovarov as they failed to show up today to the commission’s hearing.
Pivovarov was the sole scorer for his club on Sunday night putting all of the eleven missed goals into his own net, while the opponents took turns scoring into their own net. It appeared that both clubs sought defeats in the match in order to avoid much stronger opponents in the next round of the national championship.
The Russian Bandy Federation announced on Monday that the clubs would have to replay the game this Friday, March 3, at a neutral stadium in the Moscow Region.
