HCM Baia Mare –  FTC Rail Cargo Hungaria 32 – 24 (16 – 14)

Topscorers: Allison Pineau (HCM Baia Mare) 10 goals and Nerea Pena (FTC) 9 goals

The Champions League Main Round’s matches started tonight with the encounter between Baia Mare and FTC. Both teams were highly motivated to get the important points in order to secure the qualifying to the quarter finals (which FTC could maintain today with an away victory) and in order to be in the race for the quarters in case of Baia Mare, who need more victories to secure a berth in the next stage.

The host took a flying start and after ten minutes of balanced game they grabed the control of the game and of the opponent as well. Hungarians were dangerous in attack only if Nerea Pena had the ball and their goalkeepers did not save any balls, both Szikora and Tomasevic had troubles in front of Romanian shooters.

On the other hand Baia Mare presented a well prepared offensive tactic, where Perianu, Elisei or Pineau netted several times, and the team of Aurelian Rosca was in lead before the break, 16-14.

The second half could bring a close fight, but instead of that Baia Mare  planned to crush the opponent, and slowly but safely, backuped by a fantastic Ungureanu in the goal and led by an amazing Allison Pineau they increased the lead and won in a flawless manner against a broken Hungarian side.

Final result: 32 – 24
