Gran Canaria and Szczecin eye the final

SEMI-FINAL REVIEW: Rocasa Gran Canaria and SPR Pogon Szczecin have excellent chances of reaching the final of the Women’s Challenge Cup after clear wins in the first leg of the semi-finals on Sunday
 

Gran Canaria and Szczecin eye the final

The final of the Women’s Challenge Cup may very well be a Spanish-Polish tie, just like last year. Rocasa Gran Canaria and SPR Pogon Szczecin, who have each contested the final of this competition before, stand very good chances of making the cut once again. Both teams won the first leg of their semi-final ties on Sunday clearly.

Rocasa aim for third final in four years

Rocasa Gran Canaria won the Challenge Cup in 2016 and reached the final again last year. Now, the Spanish club eye a third final berth within four years after winning 22:17 at home against Kristianstad Handboll.

The Swedish team flew to Gran Canaria as early as Thursday, but their long and thorough preparation phase was not enough to earn them a win. After a nervous start by both teams, Rocasa were the first to gain control of their game, and consequently, they took a three-goal lead around the middle of the first half.

Having thrown their nerves overboard too, the Swedish visitors hung in and stayed within reach, 11:10, at half-time.

However, the second half belonged to the home team, and from 12:12, Rocasa pulled clear ahead at 19:13 and 21:14. In the last minutes of the match, Kristianstad reduced the deficit a bit, which will increase their hopes before the return match in southern Sweden on Saturday.

10 goals from Hage not enough for Quintus

10 goals from Daisy Hage were not enough for H. V. Quintus to obtain the desired result when they hosted SPR Pogon Szczecin on Sunday afternoon. With a 25:21 win in Eekhout Hal, Kwintsheul, the Polish team earned a clear advantage ahead of the second leg in Szczecin next Saturday.

Following an even first half, in which there was never more than one goal separating the teams, Szczecin were the dominant side after the break.

A narrow 13:12 lead at half-time was soon increased to 15:12 and later to 21:16 and 23:17, before the home team were able to reduce the gap a touch again at the end.
