Spring Season Kickoff!

The first game of the Spring 2013 season started off with a few bumbles and bobbles, but also a few highlights. After both teams went tit-for-tat with two goals apiece in 17 minutes of play, Robert Kleinman (IBK Vikingarna) ripped a blistering top-corner wristshot past goalie Bryan “Kub” Ponder to give the Vikings a 3-2 lead.

Unihackers started the second half flat, allowing the Vikings to score less than two minutes into the period. The match quickly evened out, and both teams battled for possession and scoring chances until a Vikings goal on a redirected pass with five minutes remaining firmly put the game in their hands. IBK Vikingarna cemented their victory less than a minute later, ending the match 5-2.

The second game of the Spring 2013 season saw the Innebandits roar out to a commanding lead in the first period. Rasmus Wendt (Innebandits) started the party with a goal around the ten minute mark. League Rookie Ryan Pickens (Cobra Kai) scored shortly thereafter to tie the game at 1, but it was all Innebandits for the rest of the half. Kyle Hoskins (Innebandits) scored twice to go along with an Own Goal to give the Innebandits a cushy 4-1 lead going in to half.
Momentum began to shift in Cobra Kai’s favor in the second half after Bobby Nodea’s (Cobra Kai) surprising freehit-turned-goal from just beyond midfield caught the entire Innebandits team unaware, making the score 4-2. Both teams traded shots until Esteban Sandoval (Cobra Kai) lifted a juicy rebound over a sprawling Rob Larkin (Innebandits) to bring Cobra Kai within one. Cobra Kai pulled their goalie after winning the ensuing faceoff and kept sustained offensive pressure, but several last-second attempts sailed just wide of the net, giving the Innebandits the win, 4-3.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.
