Champions League, Women
Main Round, Group I.
Győr was hosted in Ljubljana by Krim Mercator. After the injury of Nora Mörk on Monday, and with Amorim and Althaus injured earlier, Győr had not so many players to use here. In addition right winger Bernadette Bódi got sick on the day of the match.
Győr took the lead early in the game 3-6, with goals from Tomori, Görbicz, Groot and Broch, Krim had a longer period without scoring, but a time-out called by Uros Bregar in the middle of the first half helped the hosts. They managed to reduce the difference to 8-10, after guest advantage 6-10. Gyor did not seem very sharp either, especially in attack, but when Tomori decided to take all the responsibility on clear situations so she got dangerous and managed to net several times behind Marincek. Omoregie, Stanko, and Benko kept Krim in the race, the halftime ending 12-15.
In the second half, Grimsbø has replaced Kiss in the goal of Gyor and she was invincible, as Krim managed to score only four times in seventeen minutes when Gyor had an advantage 16-27. Oftedal, Tomori, Knedlikova had improved their performance in attack, the defense of GYor worked much better and Krim was powerless in front of it. In the last ten minutes of the game, Ambros Martin could give some resting time for several players and youngsters like Pal, Afentaler and Fodor could gain some experience in the CL and even score goals.
