Head coach Rich Chernomaz and the Hungarian junior national team were looking to pick up their first win of the U20 Super Challenge against neighboring Austria.
The coaching staff went with Gergely Bors in net with Kristóf Dobos as the backup. Austria went up 1-0 in the opening minutes of the game on a power play goal. In the second period Austria had a chance to double their lead on a penalty shot, that Bors ended up saving. However late in the period Austria went up 2-0 on a power play. Ákos Sziget made it 2-1 when he flipped home a pass from the slot. Less than minute later Hungary tied it up when Bálint Horváth banged home a rebound off of a Szigeti shot. Patrik Kiss struck 29 seconds later has Hungary came back from two down to flip the score.
In the early part of the third period Austria tied it up on a short handed goal and took back the lead later in the period. In the end before the game was out Austria scored again to take home a 5-3 win.
