Turda book last semi-final ticket

AHC Potaissa Turda are ready to face Icelandic side Valur in the semi-finals of the Men’s Challenge Cup after qualifying on Sunday thanks to a win in the second leg of the double header at home against HB Dudelange.

After winning 32:29 on Saturday, the one-goal victory on Sunday afternoon was more than enough for the hosts to book their passage to the next round.

HB Dudelange (LUX) vs AHC Potaissa Turda (ROU) 35:36 (16:19)
First leg 29:32, Aggregate 64:68

Just like in the first leg on Saturday, Dudelange had the better start, but once again, it did not take Turda long to claim the initiative.

In the first half alone the hosts established a four-goal lead, and were leading by three, 19:16, at half-time.

In the second period, Turda achieved as much as a five-goal advantage more than once, and though the visitors from Luxembourg managed to reduce the distance to one goal at the end they could not affect the Romanian side’s semi-final berth.

Right back Georgica Cintec scored eight goals for Turda, while Polish right wing Aleksiej Szyczkow scored seven for Dudelange.

The semi-final line-ups are as follows:
JMS Hurry-Up (NED) vs Sporting CP (POR)
Valur (ISL) vs AHC Potaissa Turda (ROU)
