As day three of the Women’s Euro League qualification round reaches the half-way point, the two Italian clubs, Roma and Padova, have secured qualification to the next round. Dynamo Uralochka are also nearly there with victory over Terrassa earlier.
Dynamo Uralochka remain undefeated in Group A after coming from behind to defeat Terrassa. In a gritty performance from the Russians, Maria Bersneva scored four in the match, while there were additional braces for Panfilova, Zaplatina and Sharafutdinova. The fixture between Terrassa and Glyfada tomorrow now looks to be the deciding match-up for that third qualifying spot.
The reason why that game between Terrassa and Glyfada is so significant is because the Greeks just claimed three big points against CSS Verona. One of Europe’s most exciting prospects, Eirini Ninou, stepped up and scored 4 in the game, as did Eleftheria Fountontou. CSS’s Russian,Elizaveta Ivanova, netted on 6 occasions, but it wasn’t enough to secure the points.

FTC took a big step towards securing qualification with a hard-earned victory over the dutch side ZVL. Fradi’s goal came from Viv Kovesdi (3), Panna Petik (2), Panna Pocze (2), Vanda Valyi (2) and Dora Toth-Csabai (2).
Elsewhere in the group, Mediterrani also look set to secure qualification with a victory over the difficult Lille UC. The Spanish side had to come from behind at half-time, but a blistering third quarter put them ahead and gave them a lead they never lost. Effrosyni Katsimpri netted 5 for Lille, but braces for Wolves, Marcos, Dalmases, Crespi and Lizotte was enough for Maria Diaz’s side.
The third game of the morning was nothing but a formality. Roma completely dominated Sirens. The goals for Roma came from the incoming Misiti (5), Avegno (5), Cocchiere (4), Galardi (4), Storai (3) and Tabani (3).
