Clear home victory for Győr in the last game against Rostov

Last round in Group C continued with the match between Győri Audi ETO KC and Rostov-Don in Hungary in the Audi Arean in front of 5207 spectators. Rostov arrived without Anna Sen, Ekaterina Ilina, Vladlena Bobrovnikova and Ana Paula Rodriguez to this meet, as from Győr only Zsuzsanna Tomori is missing.

The first half was a close race where the two teams were chasing each other, none of the teams had more than one goal lead during this part of the game, both Győr and Rostov were in lead for shorter periods.

Hosts had a good goalkeeper performance, Éva Kiss stopped many of the Russian attacks on her own, as Katrine Lunde on the opposite side of the court was showing her skills as well.
