OSTU-USS  – FJEP Bonson 32-11 (18-2)

The French at least gave the impression that they would struggle to avoid a walk over. Good defense from the male players could not prevent however that more athletic power on the Russian female side resulted into a 6-2 lead after 10 minutes.

When Kazachkov, one of the best scorers during the recent World Games in Colombia, regained confidence with very accurate shots, French enthusiasm faded away  (18-2)

Same spectacle after tea, the French unable to find solutions to disturb Russian attacks and not capable to score out of too few chances!

The results of this first day may result in new ways to organise the tournament.


IKF ECup day 1

SG Pegasus – 1908 SZAC KSE 31-10 (13-6)

The time that Riviera, as the first Belgian club, won the Europacup after beating PKC in Bochum (Germany) by the score of 5-4 is long gone.

At half time of the first game of the 2014 edition the score was already 13-6. This was the result of better tactical play resulting in longer attacks and an outstanding shooter on the German side, Fabian Kloes.

The supremacy of the Germans after tea was obvious. Not much effort to clinch the game with 31-10 with a thrilling shot just before the final buzzer.

For Hungary Jenna Tran performed more than well. She scored 5 out of a very few attempts.

KC Barcelona – KC Zemun 31 – 10 (12-2)

Catalonia proved in a recent past to be able to field strong club teams. This was no different  in the second match of the day. Without any major efforts the Catalans managed a comfortable lead at half time (12-2).

Secure shooting form José Alvarez left no hope for the courageous Serbs. With exactly 8 players they were unable to make changes and had to play very carefully to avoid any kind of injury

Under the agreement, for four years from 1 January 2014 all major IKF events will be played with the Mikasa K5-IKF as the international standard match ball. This agreement replaces the previous four-year agreement between the two, which expired on 31 December 2013.

IKF Senior Vice-President Frans Walvis said both parties are happy to continue their long-standing association. “Both Mikasa and IKF strive to achieve the maximum quality in what we do. Korfball benefits from the high quality product that Mikasa delivers. For the past four years, the Mikasa K5-IKF, which was a bold step forward from previous ball designs, has helped project korfball as a unique, dynamic and innovative sport. Our players appreciate and enjoy the handling characteristics and aesthetics of the ball, which quickly became an integral part of our sport’s image. “We are delighted that Mikasa has agreed to continue the relationship, and we look forward to working together to further enhance korfball as a sporting and spectator experience,” he said.
