Lugano has no feeling with the Swiss Cup
After the previous eliminations in the past seasons against Rapperswil and Langenthal, the HCL leaves the competition even this year before the expectations with a loss against a Swiss League team, in this case again against Rapperswil. (Foto F. Eicher).
The Saint Gallen team decided the game in the second period, where they scored three goals, the first in shorthand. Chiesa and teammates tried to react but they couldn't beat Nyffeler.
The Club informs that, beside Furrer and Hofmann left to rest, during the game had to leave Riva, Kparghai and Bürgler. Their injuries will be evaluated in the next days.
