Tight shoot-out victory for Denmark

Tight shoot-out victory for Denmark

Both teams arrived just days before the World Championship, so they were unable to participate at the test tournament.

The game against each other was their debut on court 3 in Al Mussanah, Oman.

Both teams had starting problems, defenses didn´t look that stable, so quick attacking resulted in several goals.

The Polish team impressed on the goalkeeper position, whilst Denmark´s joker scored several vital points.

The Scandinavians dominated the first period, but Poland was very close behind.

In the second period a head-to-head duel was on schedule, Poland scored some attractive goals, but Denmark quickly reacted in counter attacks.

The last Polish attack brought two points to them, so a shoot-out decided about the outcome of this preparation game.

There, Poland showed nerves, Denmark remained cold-blooded, so the Scandinavians celebrated victory, whilst Poland warmed up nicely ahead of their vital match in Round 1 against Hungary.

Women´s game:

Denmark – Poland 2:1 (17:16) (16:18) (10:4)
