Double Danish victory

Double Danish victory

On the very same court and this within two hours Denmark celebrated two victories, the ladies defeated the Turkish National Team in two sets.

After having lost against Hungary in shoot-out and with Sara Seir´s unfortunate injury (she´s out of the competition), the Danish ladies needed a victory to maintain their chances for a top place in the group.

After an equal game in the early phase of the match, the Danish side found its rythm and pace, and with nice assists and goals Morten Holmen´s team clearly won the first set.

Despite a good start at Turkey several errors occurred in their attacking and with Denmark using an unusual man-marking in defence the Scandinavians collected two important points.

Mathilde Jensen, player of Denmark: “With our victory that followed our men´s team´s win we can say we had today a Danish afternoon. We were not good in the morning and Sara Seir´s injury came as little shock as it happened in our opener of the tournament. We dedicate this victory to her!”

Merve Özger, player of Turkey: “We were not lucky today, but we´ll try our best tomorrow.”
