WFC 2013

12 December 2013

The Czech team successfully dealt with Poland and scored ten times. The home players controlled the game and allowed their opponents to score only once. Although they weren't as dominating as in the previous game against Latvia, they led the match to a victorious end comfortably. In the semifinal they will meet Sweden. Tereza Urbánková contributed to the win with a hat trick.

The Czechs didn't leave anything to chance and from the very first minute tried to get into scoring chances. The Poles survived the initial Czech pressure but in the fifth minute they already conceded. Čapková passed the ball to Černá who sent it mercilessly to the net. The Czech team continued in their pressure and another goal came soon. Lucie Paulovičová got past her defender with a deke and beat the goalie with her shot. And the third time lucky, Jarolímová orientated perfectly in the crease and the ball found its way to the net.

Czech players had a good appetite in the second period as well, especially Nikola Černá and Anet Jarolímová, who added their second goals. First Černá increased the score to 4:0 with an accurate shot and four minutes later Jarolímová hit the ball in the air and ensured a five-goal lead for her team The Poles then threatened several times but the Czech team was supported by the excellent goalie Kristýna Provázková. The Czechs then eased up for a while, but a few moments later after goals by Sládečková and Urbánková they were already up by seven goals.

The third period was not so dominant from the Czech point of view, but still it was Tereza Urbánková who increased the lead with only 11 seconds played. A minute after the eighth Czech goal, the Poles scored a consolation goal. Their only goal of the match was scored by Justyna Krzywak. The Czech team then made their fans happy two more times. Urbánková completed a hat trick and Dominika Šteglová scored the tenth Czech goal 17 seconds before the final horn. The Czechs therefore crushed their opponents by 10:1.

The hat trick scorer Tereza Urbánková was satisfied with the result, but still she was aware that the Czech team needs to improve some things. “Today we didn't have the game under control as much as we did on Tuesday against Latvia. Unfortunately we couldn't avoid some mistakes in defence. We need to improve this before the Saturday's match,” she said immediately after the match. More in the interview here. “The Czechs outplayed us absolutely,” Justyna Krzywak, the only Polish scorer in the game, commented on the match. Full interview here.
