KC Barcelona – Trojans KC 23-24 (14-11)
Spectators watched a very exciting first half time. At this stag it was just impossible to predict a final outcome.
Some nervous play by the Catalans was countered by longer English attacks. As it was often the case in the past, this was more than just a struggle between two different type of styles. In the past years nations and clubs from the Iberian peninsula started to claim a top 4 European ranking.
In the beginning of the second half Trojans managed to narrow the gap with the equaliser with 21′ to go. (David Brooks 15-15) Too many infringements from the Catalans and English girl power gave a lead to Trojans KC, time for the Catalan coach to think of a plan.
As the game moved on towards the end, bad passing and nervous play kept both teams from creating a sustainable difference in score (Alvarez 21-20 with 8′ to go)
23-23 with one minute on the clock meant that everyone started hoping for a golden goal but Goodridge with her second of the match decided otherwise!
