Things still open in Women’s Euro Winners Cup
Portsmouth BSC, the only one to have secured the ticket to next round
WFC Zvedza keeps in great shape, as they displayed today with a stout win over French side Amneville. The Russian girls controlled the game since the very beginning, with an inspired Zaitseva, and Amneville’s could not find the formula to stop their opponent’s advance. Corplet scored for the French again today, but the difference was already too wide. Four more goals in the last period of the game, confirmed the punishment by Zvedza.
Hosts Leiria could give the crowd the first win in the competition today, as they prevailed in the stroke exchange against Dutch side HTC BS. The game was a tightly contested battle all throughout, and only the late inspiration by the Portuguese side ended making the difference. Seinen pulled one back for HTC in the last seconds, but time was not enough for a new equalizer.
Polish champions KU AZS UAM Poznan joined the race again, bagging their first three points in this Euro Winners Cup Nazaré 2017. After yesterday’s loss to Viod Driezdum, things were not looking good today either, as Grande Motte Pyramide BS hit first, right before the first period was over. But as of the second, the Poles got into business to get hold of the game control and, eventualy turn their dominance into goals. The final 4-1 leaves things open in the group, with three teams banking options to progress to the quarter-finals.
BeachKick Berlin keeps unbeaten in this 2017 edition of the Euro Winners Cup, thanks to a narrow win over Dutch side Viod Driezdum. The German side laid the foundations of today’s victory in a prolific second period, in which they not only unbalanced the score on their favour, but managed a 4-1 run that got them in a very comfortable position. Viod Driezdum tried hard in the last frame, and even got just one goal down, but clock ticked off before they could accomplish the comeback.
Huelva-Madrid CFF ended up bagging the point at stake from the penalty kick spot, following a great comeback against Swedish Vetlanda Utd IF. The Scandinavian commanded the game for most of the time, but the mighty Spaniards came from 3-0 behind to end up upsetting their rivals from the 9 meter distance, staying atop of the table in Group C.
BSC Havana Shots Aargau stayed perfect and secured three new points today, following a laudable victory against Greek AO Kefallinia. The Hellenic hit first, and climbed to the 3-1 advantage during the fist stages of the game, but the Alpine quickly reacted to tight the game in the fourth minute of the second period. Once they got ahead, Havana Shots would never let their opponents back on the fight, and cruised to their second consecutive win in the competition, which virtually gets them onto next round.
Astra HFC bounced back from their defeat yesterday with a sweet win over Spanish side Higicontrol Melilla. The Bruno-Malias coached side managed a 2-0 advantage during the first minutes of the game, and despite Paulina Bednarsdka tried to get Melilla back on the fight, the Hungarian side stood still, securing the points with a new 2-1 run in te second leg of the game.
The 3-5 win by ASD Terracina Femminile left everything equal in group D, with the four contenders tied at 3 and identical goal average. After losing yesterday to Higicontrol Melilla the Transalpine prevailed in their clash against Russian WFC Neva to earn first points in the competition. Despite seeing things get really difficult, two goals in the last minute of the game gave Terracina the chance to fight for a place in the quarter-finals.
Portsmouth BSC confirmed their go-through to the quarter-finals of this Euro Winners Cup 2017, following a consistent win over ASD Lady Terracina. The braces by Molly Clark and Gemma Hillier were too much to cope with for the Puntine, who were making the debut in the competition Today. Ianella’s and Panicia’s replies were too little too late for Terracina, who will now need a victory against CD Bala Azul tomorrow if they want to keep options to progress here in Nazaré.
