After a thrilling final, Sweden managed to win gold medals at the EU Nations women tournament. The Scandinavian team avenged the home team's group loss and won 10:8. In the battle for bronze, Great Britain managed to win against Slovakia 12:8.
Already the group matches offered a number of evenly matched battles, among which we can include, for example, Saturday's Czech-Slovak derby or the Czech Republic-UK duel. On the basis of these results, the Czech Republic's home team advanced to the final against Sweden, while the bronze medal match awaited Great Britain and Slovakia.
In the previous showdown between Slovakia and Great Britain, the team from the Islands dominated three of the four quarters by a fairly large margin. The course of the battle for third place was somewhat different. Both teams were jostling for the lead, with Slovakia leading 7:5 at the end of the third quarter. However, in the last part of the game, British player Amelia Perkins managed to score several times and gave her team a 12:8 win.
The Swedish national team came into the match determined to return the loss to the Czech Republic from the previous match. The final battle between Sweden and the Czech Republic was initially better for the Scandinavian team. At half-time the Swedes were leading 5:3. At the beginning of the third quarter, they managed to pull away to a four-goal difference. The Czechs tried to turn the score in their favour, but failed to do so in standard time and Sweden won 10:8.
The top scorer was Amelie Perkins (GBR), who, like Sweden's Engla Lindman Long scored 20 goals, however, according to the rules of the tournament, this award goes to the youngest player if there is a tie. The award for the best goalkeeper went to Swedish player no. 1 Malin Andersson. Most valuable player became player no. 7 from the Czech republic, Karolína Hlavatá.
