Team manager of Spanish club Enrique PEREZ MIRAS speaks about first quarter-final match of ECLW
UCAM Cartagena is very satisfied with the outcome of the first quarter-final leg of 2016/17 European Champions League Women. Spanish club, ECLW no. 3 seed, beat actual runner-up and no. 2 seed, KTS Siarka ZOT Tarnobrzeg 3:0 (9:4). Returning game will be held on February 10th, in Polish southeastern city of Tarnobrzeg.
“We are very satisfied with the result, and very satisfied with the performance of our players. It was a very tough match, against a great rival, we are sure that it will be very difficult to win the tie, but it is true that we are going to Poland with the best result we could imagine. Now we have more options than before the first match. In Cartagena we were lucky to live a great show, the public enjoyed much with the rule of acceleration that was applied in the match between BILENKO and HAN”, stated Cartagena`s team manager Enrique PEREZ MIRAS.
All three players of Spanish club – Matilda EKHOLM, Tetyana BILENKO and Iulia NECULA - played excellent, but it could say that BILENKO made a crucial step when she beat World no. 6 HAN Ying after full five games.
