Hungarian League Final-close to surprise

Hungarian League Final-close to surprise

Today afternoon the CL finalist Győri Audi ETO and the CWC finalist FTC Rail-Cargo Hungaria met in the first leg of the final of Hungarian League.

It was a match full of technical faults and mistakes from both teams, but especially from Győr’s side which was very surprising. FTC managed to take the lead int he first part of the game and led by an outstanding Zsuzsa Tomori (she scored 10) had an advantage of four goals after 30 minutes on Győr’s home-court, Magvassy, 17-21.

Second part of the match has brought a much more massive defence from Győr’s side and Katrine Lunde Haraldsen replaced Katalin Pálinger in the goal. Due to these changes Győr equalised the situation, first at 25-25. Last quarter was a very close fight, with a tired FTC and a much fresher home team, where Anita Görbicz showed in the last five minutes a little bit of her genius, scoring, steeling balls and giving assists to her team mates. Final result: 37-33.

At the end of the match the club from Győr organised a mini taking -farewell ceremony for three players who played the last home-court match in Magvassy Mihály Arena today.

Slovenian international Ana Gros is leaving the club after 2 years, her next club is Thüringer HC from Germany, meanwhile left winger Orsolya Vérten will play in another club form the next season (probably in FTC), after playing 8 years in Győr, beeing the player with the highest number of played matches for the club.

Finally, goalkeeper Katalin Pálinger decided to retire at the end of season, but will continue to work at the club.
