WFC 2013

14 December 2013

The Polish national team ended their way through the ninth Women's World Floorball Championships with a win against Germany and finished on the final 7th position. The match didn't show a dramatic spectacle to the spectators; the Poles were better from the very beginning and inthe first period they already went into a decisive lead. In the rest of the game the German players didn't find enough energy to turn the score around and the match finished with a 3:1 win for Poland.

The Poles went into the lead with only 45 seconds into the game after a goal by Anna Kubowicz. Poland dominated in the first period, whereas the Germans threatened from occasional breakaways. In the 12th minute Poland increased the lead to two goals. Elzbieta Piotrowska found Agata Plechan at the centre of the court, who sent the ball into the net. The Germans managed to reduce the gap in the opening period and got back into the game.

The spectators waited for the next goal until the third period when Anna Kubowicz secured the Polish lead with her second goal of the game. The Germans couldn't find a response to this goal and the Poles thus led the game to a victorious end. “We're happy we won today. The seventh place is not that bad, although before the Championships we were thinking about the 5th place,” said Agata Plechan, who created a powerful Polish duo with Elzbieta Piotrowska at the tournament, with a smile on her face.

The German team didn't appear very agile in the match against Poland. But the reason is simple. Team Germany played seven games in eight days. “We played several difficult games in a row and mainly at the end we lacked energy,” Laura Neumann told us after the match. In the end, Germany ended on the 8th position, which is a very positive result for them. “The eighth place is a great result for Germany, I'm proud of my team!” she paid their teammates a compliment.
