In the second part, Győr pulled together their defense and  managed to make it work better than in the first half, Yvette Broch presenting herself as the real leader of the Hungarian defense, followed by the fantastic saves of Éva Kiss. The Hungarian goalkeeper replaced her injured teammate in the first half and gave a lot of confidence and support to her team through her performance.

Hosts seemed to get more and more confused, Romanian defense became passive and statical and their offensive play was often stopped by Győr’s return, defensive system or goalkeeper.

Linnea Torstensson managed to put some impressive rockets in the opponents goal, but the Romanian offense seemed to fade in face of an aggressive Hungarian wall.
