The 2017 Europa Shield edition in on! Four games where played today in Multiusos de Odivelas (POR). As expected, the first close games took place, leaded by a golden goal in favour of the English Bec KC against the German Schweriner KC. This game was followed by the SG Pegasus (GER) – KCC SOKOL (CZE), that also ended with a really close 23-21.
The other two games were clearly leaded by KC Barcelona and CRC Quinta dos Lombos. A great first day of tournament before tomorrow’s big day with 8 games. Here you can see all Day 1 results (Friday, 27 January 2017):
