Dortmund and Siófok secure quarter-final places
On Saturday, BV Borussia 09 Dortmund reached the quarter-finals of the EHF European League Women 2022/23 after handing Molde Elite their fifth consecutive defeat in group A. Meanwhile, in the same group Siófok KC also qualified for the knockout phase with a two-goal victory that eliminated ES Besancon Feminin.
Cecilie Greve was the heroine of the day in Denmark, as her 17 saves lifted Nyköbing Falster Håndbold past DVSC Schaeffler in group C. After three winless rounds, SCM Ramnicu Valeca had a 10-goal outing from Iryna Glibko to thank for a narrow victory against Paris 92 in group D.
We made the start difficult for ourselves. But then we played well together as a team and found our defensive strength. We won through speed and a good team performance.
It was an unbelievably tough match. The defence was the key, and also Rajcic in the goal. In the end, we were perhaps the luckier team, but I'm really happy and satisfied with our effort.
It feels absolutely amazing after we lost in Hungary. We did what we are good at and that helped us to win the game.
Honestly, it was a good performance for our team. Even though we were unable to win with a bigger difference, as we hoped, we fulfilled our task. Overall, it should be OK. We still have one game to play, and we are looking forward to it.
