After starting the season with a very exciting, but tough, shootout loss against Champigny in front of the home crowd, the Tornados managed to secure their first win of the season in the following game away to ACBB Paris, 7-6, with only 11 players; and they also won the next game against Dijon, more decisively in an 8-2 win. This means Tornado holds 2nd position in the group with seven points after collecting points in each of their first three games.
The next opponent: Dammarie-les-Lys. Dammarie is only one point behind the Tornados in the standings after winning 20-6 against Fontenay and 5-1 against Reims, but then losing 15-2 to the current group leader, Epinal.
Tornado's first line, composed of #71 Henri Öörni (4 goals +7 assists), #9 Colm Cannon (3+4) and #69 Shorty Müller (6+2) has had a strong start. They have scored 13 out of Tornado's 18 first goals this season.
Although Tornado Luxembourg has had the second-best start of all teams in the league and is "on fire" currently, one big achievement remains to be unlocked: a first win in front of their home crowd.
After two good games and with the support of their loyal fans, the team has an urge to secure the first home win this season and, when they look at the standings, that is what is more than needed now.
