CBS Sport Handball Women 1 suffers defeat in the first match

Sunday the 4th of October, the CBS women’s team played its first Serie 1 match of the season. The opponent was Hvidovre IF 2, who relegated from the Copenhagen league (Københavnerserien) earlier this year. New players sweated it out in the blue CBS jersey for the first time, and there was a high level of excitement. However, the fact that the players only have been practicing together for a few weeks, clearly affected the performance of the team.

Poor communication and impatience in the offensive play caused the team to fall behind right from the start. Hvidovre IF 2 exploited every technical mistake made by the CBS women and managed to keep a steady pace all the way through. Despite the loss (19-34) there were positive elements important to bring forward as well.

The player of the day, Helle Jensen, took charge as a playmaker and directed her teammates when needed the most. The new goalkeeper, Agi Magyerkova from Bratislava, also had a couple of nice saves. A few weeks from now, Sunday October 25th, you can watch the CBS Women play their next match against KSG and hopefully demonstrate why they deserve a place in Serie 1.
