Follo Trykk Arena

Norway –  Germany 35 – 28 (16 – 15)

Topscorers: Heidi Löke (NOR) 7 goals and Kim Naidzinavicius, Luise Schulze, Lone Fischer (GER) 5 goals each

This is one of the first women tournaments where the new rules will be used on the handball court, exciting to try out before the Olympics.

Germany hang on with Norway in the first half of the game when German goalkeeper Anna Monz made an excellent debute in the national team and Norwagian players did not know her very well, having problems in the first ten minutes of the game to put the ball behind her.

Heidi Löke and Nora Mörk were efficient in this period, meanwhile German leftwinger Lone Fischer ran in several fastbreak goals in the Norwegian goal.

The second half started with Katrine Lunde in the goal, replacing Silje Solberg- but not even Lunde was enough to stop quick German goals.

Kari Bfrattsett on the line and in defense made a remembered debute for Norway, scoring three goals and making the Norwegian defense to work better.
