Banska Bystrica won its second match of the weekend, fending off league powerhouse Nitra on Sunday by a narrow margin. Dana Tyrell had helpers on both goals for the home team, the first coming on the power play after a failed pass attempt that Clayton Stoner gathered and fired on net, generating a rebound that banked in after being in front from the left side of the net. The other Tyrell gained by chipping the puck to a teammate steaming through center ice, springing a successful 2-on-1. Banska Bystrica (13-13-4-1, 48 PTS) and Nitra (15-9-5-2, 57 PTS) will spend this week at rest before squaring off again on Sunday.
