In the first half tough only one team was convincing, Vipers ran faster and more than Bietigheim, Reistad, Yttereng, Sulland or Aune contributed to a good flow in attack and their compact defense managed to stop the German attacks on the other end of the court, being backed up of an amazing Katrine Lunde. Halftime: 12-16.
