The Netherlands: European Korfball Champion 2016 (EKC Day 8 – Sun, Oct 30)

One more time, The Netherlands beat Belgium in the IKF EKC final played in Dordrecht’s Sportboulevard Sunday, October 30,2016. The power of the Dutch team was overwhelming in the first minutes, creating a huge gap in the scoreboard with 10-2 at the end of the first quarter, making it almost impossible to go back for the Belgians.. Belgium tried to recover, but it was an impossible mission given the excellent performance of the Dutch who were supported by a home crowd of 4,000 in a sold-out venue. The final result: 27-14.

The bronze medal game was a terrific and exciting game between two similar and experienced teams. Catalonia lead in the beginning, but Portugal came back and turned the game around. Only in the last minutes the Catalan team was able to open a little breach, which became decisive in the final result (12-16). This bronze medal is the first ever achieved by the Catalan national korfball team in an IKF senior tournament.

IKF EKC 2016 Day 5: Semi finalists known (results, interviews, games & images) Wed, Oct 26

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.

IKF EKC 2016 Day 3: Results, pools, interviews, games & images (Mon, Oct 24)

Third EKC day in Dordrecht’s Sportsboulevard, with all teams one hundred percent concentrated and focused, while competing to achieve the best results in their duels.

Portugal and Germany gave no options to Poland and Turkey. But England and Czech Republic had to fight until the last minute to decide the winner. England started very strong and secure, but the czechs go back into the game and finished very close and with some chances to turn around the scoreboard in the last minutes.

The last match between Catalonia and Russia showed us how motivated and powerful is this catalan squad. With an overwhelming 1st quarter (13-4), they kept scoring until the end of the game, achieving the top result so far in this IKF EKC 2016, with 35 goals scored (35-11).
