We will continue our campaign in Euroleague on Thursday from 6 pm agaoonst Girona, who have three wins just like we do, so it would be very important to take revenge for our defeat in October.
The unfortunate game in Spain is a hurtful memory for us, in which we found ourselves facing an aggressive, rock solid Girona. We reacted badly to that many times, and also when it was a tie game in the 17th minute Briann also left the game due to an injury, and later on Jeca also bruised her side when falling. We had our strength anyway, and in crunch time we came back down to 6 points from being down by fifteen earlier. That was important because if we win by a bigger margin on Thursday, we would be better on aggregate in the end in this balanced unpredictable group. But first of all let's get that win, which will be a very difficult task, too!
Both teams' rosters have changed in comparison tho the game in Spain. On our side Candice came back, while at the other end world class player Sonja Petrovic has recovered after her surgery, and during the holidays they brought home ooutstanding Spanish national team point guard Marta Xargay. However, American Brittney Sykes has left to Turkish side Cukurova.
In the last games, both teams had worse periods. That hurt them more in their first showing in January, since we have suffered a calculated loss on the road against Fenerbahce, and they fell short to Lyon in Girona in a huge battle.
Our preparation for the game was made more difficult by the absence of Dalma Czukor who is struggling with her Achilles, and Virág Weninger who has a high fever that has prevented her from practicing. Stevan Karadzic stodd in front of our cameras before the game.
We are happy to deliver another great news regarding the future! As Managing Director Zoltán Török said: "Dalma Czukor who I see as a great talent extended her contract to our club ith two years!" We can be sure that our former youth player and pride of Sopron who proves her talent week after week in our club will bring a lot of joy to our fans with her game in the future
Újabb örömteli hírrel szolgálhatunk a jövőt illetően! Ahogy azt Török Zoltán ügyvezetőnk elmondta: "Czukor Dalma, akire óriási tehetségként tekintek, további két évvel hosszabbította meg szerződését klubunkkal!" Biztosak lehetünk abban, hogy saját nevelésű soproni büszkeségünk, aki hétről hétre bizonyítja tehetségét csapatunkban, a jövőben is sok örömet fog okozni játékával szurkolóinknak
