Katrine Lunde was back for Norway, replacing Emily Stang Sando in the squad before the match against Romania and she played her match with number 300 for Norway.
Norway started well, but Romania managed to keep up in the first half. Norway had huge problems with scoring on their clear chances, missed many shoots in the first half against Dumanska, and the first half ends 13-13. Herrem, Brattset and Lunde in the goal kept Norway on surface in this period f the match. Romania made their best match until now in the EURO, Buceschi, Ostase, and Laslo had a good performance, beside the goalkeepers, Dumanka and Dedu.
In the second half Romania managed to stay close and be a worthy opponent until the 42.minute, 17-17, but not any longer. Katrine Lunde improved a lot in the goal, Herrem, Oftedal, Reistad, Mørk or Brattset were efficient and Norway won the game 20-28.
