MACCABI DIMONA – YMCA 23-14 (15-6)
Macccabi Dimona recovered from yesterday’s dramatic loss to Paris S.G. and easily defeated YMCA 23-14 in the opening match of Day 2. With that result the club from Thessaloniki lost their chances to qualify to the quarter-finals.
Andreas Lagoudis (Coach – YMCA): “We are getting better and better and we feel happy we are giving these young players the opportunity to test their skills and strength in such a strong international tournament. We hope we will soon achieve better results.”
Tubul Shlomi (Coach – Israel): “Against Paris S.G. we lacked energy and we looked much stressed. Today it was a different game, we felt more relaxed. This is our first international tournament and we can’t hope for anything else than playing as good as we can and reach the highest possible ranking.”
