After the 5th day of competition in IKF EKC 2016 in Dordrecht, the semi finalists are known. Catalonia beated Germany in a very exciting game. The best scoring of the Catalans in the 3rd quarter allowed them to get enough advantage and decide the game in their favour by 21-16.
Previously, today’s 1st game between England and Portugal was clearly dominated by the Portuguese. England tried to go back, but the challenge was huge and Portugal kept scoring until the end of the game (12-17).
Belgium is the other known semi finalist. They will play against Catalonia on Friday at 18:00 PM (GMT + 2). Their last game vs Czech Republic (34-14) was very close at the beginning, but during the 2nd quarter the Diamonds showed all their potential and definitely decided the match.
The last game of this IKF EKC 2016 Day 5 ended with an spectacular 48-12 in favour of The Netherlands over Russia. From the very beginning it was clear that this game was a great chance to show to Dordrecht’s Sportboulevard audience how powerful and talented the Dutch team is. Great plays, fast balls, tricky goals and constant alley-oops as a demonstration of great showtime.
These are today’s Day 5 results, the updated ranking pools and the match schedule of games to play on Friday, October 28 (Day 6), after Thursday 27 as a day of rest.
