After getting the league quarter finals behind our backs in a single week, we have our next task ahead of us right away this week. From 6 pm. on Tuesday semi-finals will begin against powerful side CMB CARGO UNI GYŐR.
They have put together a particularly strong roster with a deep rotation, but the team's performance doesn't meet the expectations so far. Eventually, there was a change on the bench, Sandro Orlando took over Péter Völgyi's position as head coach. They have got the bronze medal at the Hungarian Cup with him already.
They faced Ceglédi EKK in the quarter finals. Both games were decided in a great battle. In Győr they have won by 4 points, and in Cegléd they came away with the victory after a buzzer-beater. So our rival also made it to the semi-finals in two games.
We have met them twice so far this season. Back in the fall we lost in Győr by a single point, but here at home we got a confident, 14-point victory. Yvonne scored our 4000th point against them in our last game.
Our team showed some improvements on defense in the series against PEAC-Pécs, but we know that we will still need more against Győr and of course it is also important because of the FINAL4 that we keep getting better.
We asked Angela Salvadores about her expectations before the game, and she made it clear that they are only thinking about getting the win with the ladies.
Tickets can be purchased at the venue for 1300 HUF. Entry to the game is free of charge below the age of 14 and above 70.
