H 65 Höörs HK – Hypo NÖ 32 – 19 (14 – 12)

Topscorers: Emma Lindquist (Höörs) 7 goals and Marina Topic (Hypo) 5 goals

The Swedish champion played a close first half against Hypo, but in the second part of the match Scandinavians just ran over Austrians, which seemed to not be able to keep up with this tempo. Höörs as debutants will play the final tomorrow against a very experienced THC, Germans being a permanent participant of the Champions League groups and Main Rounds in the last years.
