Annual European event


IKF ECup 2014 day 3

State University HSS – SG Pegasus 23-30 (11-14)

The major concern of the Germans must have been to prevent the talented Kazachkov from scoring too many.  Obviously, in the first half, they very well succeeded due to a 26% scoring percentage from mainly male players.

Also in the second half the Russian tactical plan remained too predictable with the focus on two main attackers. The Germans took care of a decent setting in the attack zone, with good rebound opportunities and assists. As a result Pegasus gained confidence and precious time went lost for the team of Orel.

This could mean that we would have a traditional England-Germany on the final day as it was so often the case in past IKF Europa Cups.

IKF ECup 2014 day 3

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!


IKF ECup 2014 day 3

Edinburgh City KC  FJEP Bonson 5-27 (4-14)

Day 2 brought what spectators need to get thrilled by the sport. An exciting close game between the Russian and the Czech competitors. Beautiful actions of PKC and Boeckenberg that proved that there is still a way to go for challengers outside Belgium and The Netherlnads to contest the supremacy of the oldest korfball nations and a very tactical game of Benfica, a confirmation that there is nothing wrong with the long term vision in Portugal.

As for the game that was to decide about the last two places, it was clear at half time that Bonson had the better skills and more accuracy that their Scottish opponents. Despite the early starting time, spectators enjoyed very much the enthusiasm of both teams.

Same play in the second half. The French team managed to double the score while as the Scots only marked one goal.

After the final whistle both teams gave a big performance in building communities!

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
