Magnitka's winning beginning; Admiral blockades Barys. August 12 preseason round-up14 August 2017, 15:00
Admiral, which learned that it would not be setting sail for this season’s play-off after Avtomobilist’s win last night, at least gained some consolation from a victory at local rival Amur.
The latest Far East derby went the way of the visitors thanks to goals from Niklas Bergfors and Konstantin Makarov. Those strikes sandwiched an effort from Ruslan Bashkirov that tied the scores early in the second period.
Defeat confirms that Amur will finish bottom of the table this season regardless of the outcome of its final game in Vladivostok on Tuesday.
