Vardar marches to the Main Round with seven points

Macedonian powerhouse, HC Vardar started the group stage of CL with a draw against FTC on home court, result which resulted in a head coach change, Indira Kastratovic was dismissed of her position and David Davis took over the team.

Since that first failure Vardar is unbeaten so far, but we have to mention that in a group with two teams like HC Leipzig and Astrahanochka this result should be normal for Vardar, the only question mark was related to FTC, which has stolen one point from Jane Sandanski arena, but Vardar defeated the Hungarians last weekend.

The last game of Vardar was in Germany against HC Leipzig, which could actually qualify to the Main Round with a  draw or a slight victory, as they beat the Russians and they needed only one point.

Leipzig started well, but their power was just not enough against a super strong and motivated Vardar with stars from all over the world. Macedonians defeated HC Leipzig, which took farewell from CL after this game and Astrachanochka could really celebrate for their Main Round berth.

HC Leipzig –  HC Vardar 22 –  45 (9 –  22)


HCL: Reime 5, Weise 5, Hubbinger 4, Sturm 4, Theilig 3, Rode 1

Vardar: Lacrabére 9, Lekic 6, Radicevic 5, Covic 4, Lazovic 4, Ristovska 4, Damnjanovic 3, Herrem 3, Khmyrova 3, Ilyna 2,  Mavsar 2
