For some reason Graz 99ers did not want to play Fehérvár AV19 in the championship game of the Gábor Ocskay Jr., the championship game ended up pitting Fehérvár against MAC Budapest.

Fehérvár AV19-MAC Budapest 2-0
The visiting team had a couple changes to their lineup as Gergely Arany was the starting goalie and Norbert Zaka was the backup because of the injury to Bence Bálizs. Also getting in the lineup was Kristóf Schmál and Dávid Jászai who took the place of Bence Bödök and Gergely Tóth respectively. For Fehérvár Zoltán Hetényi started in net, also getting into the lineup was Krisztián Szabó.

Both teams came out gunning as there were scoring chances on both sides. The home team Fehérvár probably had a few more. However both goalies stood at the top of their game as neither team scored. Fehérvár was not able to score on the only power play of the period.
In the second period the referees became more active in calling penalties as both teams had two penalties called against each other in the middle twenty minutes. The ice was finally broken when Justin Maylan sent a shot past Arany from the right faceoff dot to put Alba Volán up 1-0.
Fehérvár stayed on top for most of the third period and they kept the pressure on the MAC goal  but Arany stood tall. On the other side Hetényi kept the clean sheet. Late in the game MAC had a straight two minute 5 on 3 power play where Gergő Nagy had the only real scoring chance. Volán went up by two goals when the two penalized players stepped back on the ice. Csanád Erdély sprang both Andrew Sarauer and Dave Makowski as the former set up the latter on a two on zero for the goal. In the last minute of play MAC pulled their goalie for the extra attacker but Hetényi still pitched a shutout.


Graz 99ers-Cracovia 3-2
In the bronze medal game of the tournament Graz took on Cracovia. Graz was playing without Kyle Beach as he picked up a suspension in the yesterdays game, Fabian Weinhandl was the starting goalie in net. Cracovia had Michael Luba between the pipes.
After a scoreless first period Florian Iberer scored against his former team to put the Polish club up 1-0. Just at the halfway point of the game Graz tied it up at 1-1. In the third period Graz scored two early goals to go up by two. The second one being a rocket from the blue line on a power play. Cracovia scored a late goal in the third period to make it a one goal game but were unable to tie the game up.
