Last year champions Larvik defeated slovenian Krim Mercator with twelve goals Sunday afternoon.
Krim got off from the startblock with high speed and had a lead of three at a moment, but the home team, Larvik, got their heads together and equalized the lead Krim had.
And, not to mention that Larvik HK probably got the best right side in Europe. Linn Jørum Sulland and Amanda Kurtovic represented fiften of the thirtyone goals Larvik HK scored today.
Amanda Kurtovic, who was watching the match against Podravka from the bench last weekend, came on the court as a fresh breath in the first period and scored three in a row. And, she didn’t stop there. With an amazing seven of eight shots as goals in the protocol the 20-year old showed her capacity.
– It’s so fun with Amanda today. We knew her capacity, and it’s really fun that she shows it here today, assistant coach Tor Oddvar Moen comments to Timeout Magazine.
Amanda herself is also very pleased with her own match today.
– I don’t have so much experience with Champions League matches, but I just had to take the opportunity and I’m glad it went well today. I’ve good teammates and we cooperate good, giving each other tips and support each other all the time, Amanda Kurtovic tells to Timeout Magazine after the twelve goal victory.
