Team of Zdravko Zovko defeats Hypo Niederösterreich 31:22 and wins WRHL trophy.
Paula Claudia Ungureanu was key player of Podravka Vegeta in this match. Romanian goalkeeper had 18 amazing saves, but her team-mates did well also.
Zdravko Zovko surprised Andras Nemeth by not playing 6-0 defence. Hypo played without Englert and Toth who was best scorer in last match against Podravka (15 goals). Without Toth, Hypo did not have solution for firm and aggressive Croatian defence.
On the other side, Podravka was unstoppable in offence, passing by Hypos players without problems. Only goalkeeper Blazek saved Austrians from much bigger defeat.
Coach Zovko gave cofidence in entire match to his first line-up: goalkeeper Ungureanu was the best player, backs Penezić, Tatari and Pasičnik gave their contribution also, excellent job on wings position was done by Todorovska and Lovrak and Đokić on pivot position did not disappoint either.
