Gjensidige Cup, Oslo

Nordstrand Arena

Kristian Bjørnsen on the rightwing and Christian O’Sullivan on the playmaker position were back for Norway after injuries and sickness, but Brazil made a good first half where they tried to stick to the hosts and at 11-11 the result was even. Sagosen, Bjørnsen or Myrhol made a good first half, but the Brazilian team was a strong opponent today, and the first half ended 19-16.

In the second half due to a fantastic Torbjérn Bergerud in the Norwegian goal, hosts managed to keep their advantage and to stabilize their play, winning as favorites both the game and the tournament.
