Hungary saved chances for qualification but Denmark did not slow down and recorded another win at the Women’s U19 WFCQ in Saku! Check, what happend in Saku on Day 2!
Italy – Hungary
Italy aiming to take a revange after a 1-11 lose to Hungary in 2019 at the Women’s U19 qualification, but will they be able to stop Nora Lelovics who was Hungarian yesterday’s reason for success? After losing their opening games yesterday, both teams had to give it all to keep their chances for two top spots in the tournament. In first period, both teams tried hard but could not score until 12th minute when Hungary took their chance and Jazmin Kajtar scored first one. There was one more goal for the Magyarország and it was Italy again who needed to come from behind. At the beginning of second period, just like in the previous match against Estonia, Marta Pelliccioni stepped up to become a key figure in the Italian attack. Soon after, Lelovics put Hungary into three-goal lead. In third period, while Italy were looking to fight back, it was Hungary who totally dominated after the break, Nora Lelovics added two more and she is currently the top scorer of the tournament with 9 goals.
Estonia – Denmark
There were no favourites in this match, as both teams played each other for the first time and both, won their first games yesterday. The motivated Danish team enjoyed a good start of the match, by the fifth minute they were ahead 1-0. They could not keep the same pace for a long time, though. With the ever-reliable goalkeeper, Saskia Ormak (EST) saving 13 shots, the Danish side found it more and more difficult to score. In 14th minute, Estonians woke up, grabbed the initiative and equalised. Mia Le-maire Rontved Dahl (DEN) put her team in front only two minues after the second period started. Estonia played a very tight defence but struggled in attack. There were no more goals before the second intermission. Third period was expected to be tough and this is what exactly two teams did. As mistakes started happening for the Danish side, Estonia got a chence to play in power play twice. The second one was succesfull and Reelika Liiv equalised for the second time 7 minutes before the final whistle. A lack of focus two minutes before the end cost Estonia another goal. Denmark managed to deliver their second win in the tournament, and booked a ticket to Women’s U19 WFC in New Zealand! Best players awards went to Saskia Ormak (EST) and the last goal scorer Miriam Emma Engelhardt.
