By National Teams of Ice Hockey

The Ukrainian national team clashed with Croatia in an exhilarating match, falling behind with the first goal but swiftly equalizing early in the second half. Despite being a player short for a considerable duration, the Ukrainian women dominated the game until the final whistle, clinching a well-earned triumph. This victory marked their fifth consecutive win in the tournament, securing them a place in next year’s world championship Division II B.

The team’s last appearance in Division II B was in 2020, heightening the significance of this accomplishment. It was a momentous day for Valeria Manczak-Jensen, the team’s captain and top scorer in the Division III A championship, as she commemorates her birthday alongside the victory on the ice.
