Christian Dalmose, head-coach Viborg HK:
” We made some changes in our play, we dared to take challenges and we succeed. Some tactical movements helped us to turn the match, at the same time replacing Masson by Darleux was a correct move, we must do it earlier, but when we finally did it it was successfull.”
Trine Troelsen (FCM):
“We got a dream start, a really good start, but Viborg are class fighters, and they have fought back, while we begin to make mistakes and our defense was not working. We were pushed to score against their 4-2 defense, and they made great replacements during the match, having a quiet diverse troop.
Darleux in the goal caused us a lot of trouble, we were not prepared against their offensive defense and the way how they solved that.”
