BRA 0 PRAGUE 1
This was a particularly challenging match, as it decided the position of the team in the first play offs. Nerves got the better of our defence and this allowed Prague to steal an early goal and defend heavily in the second half. However, Andrea and Lydia made some excellent challenges which gained possession for BISB various times.

After analyzing Prague tactics in the prior match, BISB were motivated to give it 100% in their rematch. Sarah was great in defence by clearing the ball away from goals several times and also Sasha’s ball control around the pitch to keep possession, which led to another well-deserved goal.
