WFC 2013

08 December 2013

In the second today's game in group C the spectators saw a surprisingly tough and interesting floorball. The Australians were in charge of the game mainly due to their fiercer attitude and bigger fighting spirit, but the Koreans managed to score their historically first goal at the World Championships. The final score was 9:1.

Australia are one of the traditional teams in women's floorball and they fully used the experience from international games today. They found their way through the highly disciplined Korean defence mainly thanks to greater pressure on the ball, which resulted in many successful tip-ins. The teams fought almost for every inch of the court.

Yesterday, the Australians showed they are good are in power plays and today they also converted a few of them. The third Australian goal was probably the most interesting one. It came after a long lob by Meagan Mazurek across the length of the court, followed by a tip-in by Tash Glass.

A nice moment came in the seventeenth minute when Jung Kyung Eun made use of her activity and finished successfully: “I'm grateful that I can play such quality games against good teams and I'm very happy about my goal.” (the entire interview can be found here) Her goal didn't mean any turn in the score, but for the Korean team it was a great success – their historically first goal at the World Championships.

But overall the Australians absolutely controlled the game. They kept increasing their lead and also let the substitutes play, which may be useful for tomorrow's match against Slovakia for the first place in the group.
