IKF ECUP 2017 Day 2: Final games known

Some real exciting games took place during this IKF ECUP 2017 Day 2 (Friday, 13 January 2017). The 1st game between Szentendre SZ HE (HUN) and the Catalan CK Vallparadís was an example, and was only decided in the last minutes (13-14). More terrific was the game NC Benfica (POR) – Trojans KC (ENG), won by a decisive goal (9-10) scored by Kathryn Goodridge with only 7 seconds left.

The other games determined all the final games that will be played tomorrow, with the big final at 17:00 (GMT+1) between TOP/Quoratio (NED) and Boeckenberg KC (BEL), just after the Bronze medal game at 15:00 (GMT+1): CK Vallparadís (CAT) – Trojans KC (ENG).

The 16-12 score by the Dutch with 0,6 second to go before the end of the first 25 minutes and the 17-12 within 10 seconds after the start of the 2nd half was a big blow in the Boeckenberg ambitions.
