Ebro Delta revisited

Breaking the rules

Back in Ebro Delta again. It has been one year since the last visit but this time we focused on Barcelona and spent only one day in Ebro Delta wetlands. It is well suited for a day-trip from Barcelona and takes about 1 1/2 hours one way by car using the toll-highway (autopista AP-7, €20-30 one way). There is an option for those that have more time and are looking to save some money by taking the “scenery-route” along the coast. This will take 30-60 minutes longer but you end up saving the highway tolls. As mentioned this time our hub was located in the outskirts of Barcelona, Castelldefels. We rented a car that we used to get around and the first day we spent at Delta Ebro, 150 km south from Barcelona.

Kiekko-Vantaa vs. Jokipojat – Mestis, round 15 2016-2017 @ Trio Areena

Kiekko-Vantaa unable to capitalize, falls to Jokipojat

Sulin goes close

The game was a thriller even though the scoreline would suggest something else. Jokipojat started strong scoring twice in the first period. Kiekko-Vantaa was stronger in the second period after beating couple penalty kills in the beginning of the period. Kiekko-Vantaa scored in powerplay evening the scales. However they were robbed by the game official when Jokipojat scored after the puck had been out of bounce in the end of the 2nd period. How none of the four official noticed the situation leading to the goal is beyond comprehension. The 4-1 goal was made by last seasons salmon hero Nico Friman in the third period sealing the deal for Jokipojat.
