K Boeckenberg KC – NC Benfica 33-11 (16-3)
Boeckenberg from the beginning tried to control the game by a full court press in defense. As a result passing was difficult for Benfica and many misunderstandings occurred. The second Belgian attack took much time but even then it became clear that no surprise was to be expected. At that moment only Luise Costa had been successful for Benfica.
The Belgians had a comfortable lead at half time. They did not field their strongest team to be able to prepare for the final in optimal conditions.
Same scenario in the second half. Benfica was incapable to benefit from Belgian tactical changes. Just one of the reasons was a disappointing scoring percentage (11/90). But then it seemed that the struggle for bronze on the final day was the important issue.
