Hypo finish on third rank

Group 2:

Hypo Niederösterreich – Dinamo Volgograd 28:26 (14:13)

As the semi finalists in group 2 had already been decided before – Valcea’s first, Viborg second – this match of Hypo and Dinamo was only relevant for the third place. By taking their second victory in the Main Round on Friday evening, Hypo (four points) rank one point ahead of Dinamo in the final ranking. The match was tough and close until the very end, even as the Austrians led 9:3 after twelve minutes. Volgograd reduced the gap to only one goal at the break and was close to Hypo until the very end. Top scorers for Hypo were again their Brazilians: Daniela Piedade and Alexandra do Nascimento each scored eight goals – but Nascimento missed the number of 100 goals in this season by only one, but still leads the top scorer’s ranking with 99 goals. As Dinamo top scorer Anna Kochetova (likeKmyrova)scored seven goals in the last match for the Russian champion, the distance between number one and number two in the top scorer’s list is 15 goals – but players like Varzaru (68/Viborg) and Löke (67/Larvik) still have some possibilities to take the lead in this ranking.
