Following Saturday’s second session the semi-finalists of the 2013 edition of the IKF Europa Shield are now known. Adler Rauxel (GER), who completed a 100% record in their pool matches following their 13 – 9 win against Cascais, will play Kolin (CZE) following the Czech club’s 8 – 17 defeat to CK Vallparadis (CAT). The other semi-final will be between CK Vallparadis, who also had a 100% record in their pool matches, and Brno (CZE) who rounded off their day with a 14 – 9 win over Obudai (HUN).
Fifth and sixth places will be between Nottingham, who won 20 – 5 against AZS Wroclaw (POL) in the day’s second session, and Obudai (HUN). Fighting it out for 7th and 8th places will be Cascais (POR) and AZS Wroclaw (POL).
