The BeachKick Ladies almost had a shock to their campaign at Euro Winners Cup 2016, but they held nerves to steal victory in a thriller.
The Ladies survived a spirited effort from Catanzaro as they in the process increased their chances of qualifying for the knockout stage as the table topper from Group C.
Once as close as 5-4 in the match, they could overcome the Italian side, thanks to the goal from Weigand. In great tempo after their last game thumping win against Nomme Kalju, Berlin struggled a bit for their first hit to the goal although Heer kept her good work continued when Gabriel opened the scoreboard for Beachkick Ladies.
Fresh from their 8-1 win yesterday, Berlin struggled for a breakthrough early on although Heer struck the woodwork prior to Gabriel opening the scoring for her team. It couldn’t change much onto the competition they had to face, as chances came out few and far between after play was resumed.
Both teams kept hitting the goal post one after another to smother any chances of decisive lead.
Goals: 1-0: Gabriel, min. 4 (1); 2-0: Schultze, min. 8 (2); 3-0: 13, min. Neue (2); 3-1: Marino, min. 10 (3); 3-2: Capalbo, min. 6 (3); 4-2: Wiegand, min. 5 (3); 4-3: Villar, min. 2 (3); 5-3: Gabriel, min. 1 (3); 5-4: Villar, min. 1 (3); 6-4: Weigand, min. 0 (3)
