DVSC Schaeffler (HUN) vs DHK Banik Most (CZE) 36:29 (14:14)
Most had a better start and scored three straight goals early in the match. However, Debrecen weathered the storm, and a 5:0 run in the next five minutes helped them to take a 5:3 lead.
The game became more balanced after that, with neither of the sides being able to pull clear. DVSC enjoyed a better shot efficiency, yet the teams were level at half-time (14:14), as Most’s Katarina Kostelna missed a good chance to put her team in front a few seconds before the break.
However, free-flowing attack helped DVSC to score as many as 10 goals in the 11 opening minutes of the second half, which saw them taking a 24:19 lead.
Anna Kovacs, who missed a number of shots before the break, started to use her chances better, and she enjoyed a good support from Szabina Karnik, Rebeka Arany and Anita Bulath.
Experienced left back Bulath scored five of her six goals before the break, but it did not stop her from finishing the game as Debrecen’s top scorer.Author: Sergey Nikolaev / ew
