The striker of the Bratislava Slav, Marcel Haščák, was the central figure of Sunday’s match of the 30th round of the Tipos Extra League on the ice of Banská Bystrica.
He took part in the victory of the guests 6: 2 with a hat-trick, to which he also added two assists. The 34-year-old hockey player is pleased that his son, who was in the stands, also saw the goals.
“I am personally glad that we won and I helped the team to win. I’m glad that Banská Bystrica played well. I wanted to show off a bit and I succeeded. I read before Sunday’s meeting of some experts that they don’t put me in any nominations. So I thought I’d remind them a little bit, ” Haščák laughed.
He made no secret of the fact that he also pleased his son, who watched the duel in the stands: “I’m glad that my son also saw my goals in Banská Bystrica. He was in the stands, so we both enjoyed it, and I nodded to him. I’m glad I enjoy it and that he also saw my goals. Now after the match I was still with him, so I was late for interviews, “ added the striker, who wears a “céčko” on his jersey during the absence of team captain Michal Sersen.
Haščák does not remember ever scoring three goals in a row in ten minutes. In Banská Bystrica, he managed to do it in the fourth to fourteenth minute. “I hope it will continue to work like this. I had more chances in this match, but after those three goals I started to think more, and unnecessarily. I think that if I didn’t invent and shoot on goal, then still I’ll add some goal, “ claimed the experienced winger.
Regarding the course of the duel itself, he noted: “The Americans played well, they attacked us, they fought us, they all honored them. It occurred to us there. We had an excellent start, we scored those three goals quickly. Thank God it fell for us and not them in the beginning. I am grateful and I hope we have such a start every match. “
Captain and defender Ivan Ďatelinka returned to the team of Banská Bystrica after a break of more than a month. At the post-match briefing, he made no secret of the fact that he imagined his return differently: “I certainly didn’t imagine it that way. What to say, I was expecting a better match. Unfortunately, it turned out like this. Slovan is a very good team that punishes all mistakes. We only had a small mistake and we got a goal right away. and they know how to punish every single hesitation. We had a bad start. The opponent took basically all his opportunities. Then it was hard for us to catch up. “
Clover also commented on the productivity of Haščák: “Congratulations to Marcel on the hetric. Unfortunately, we didn’t guard him. That’s why it was what it was after the first third.”
