The last game in group D between Denmark and Germany was a great drama. The tight game was basically decided by two German players. The goalie Indra Reck and the scorer of all three German goals Ina Jensen.

The game for the first spot in group D between Germany and Denmark promised a great battle and so it really was. Simon Brechbühler was carefully preparing his team for the Danish opponents for a long time, which bore its fruit. Although the Danes pressed their southern neighbours deep to their half, it didn't bring any goals. It seemed as if the Danes couldn't beat the wall built by the German goalie Indra Reck. The 19-year-old Weissenfels goalie was showing one great save after another and the otherwise very prolific sniper Cecilia di Nardo was only shaking her head.

The Danes virtually lost their chance for a victory by their own indiscipline. In the second period they offered two power plays to the Germans, who used them fully thanks to Ina Jensen. Despite they managed to reduce the score late in the period thanks to the alert Caroline Christoffersen, it was Jensen again who returned the comfortable two-goal lead to Germany early in the third period. The Danes again tried to turn the game around with di Nardo scoring her seventh game at the World Championships, but it wasn't enough for the motivated and determined Germans.

They could thank above all to their goalie Reck, who supported her team several times with important saves in the final seconds of the game when Denmark pulled their goalie. “Indra? She was like a rock!” the hat trick scorer Ina Jensen spoke highly of her teammate (more here).

So, the Germans qualified for the play-off, in which they will meet Russia tomorrow at 9 a.m.
