That secured top spot in Pool A and took Dowds’ total for the campaign to four in three games.

Bann began their campaign on Friday with a 2-2 draw with Rotweiss Wettingen, Dowds and McCandless with the goals.

There was another two for Dowds on Saturday when Bann smashed HC Minsk 4-1 to rocket to the top of the group, Mills and Wright with a goal each.

A win in this afternoon’s final would mean two Irish teams will play in next year’s EHL.
