EuroHockey Youth Championship II, Girls, Mori, Italy

In a beautiful setting for the public more than 200 spectators enjoyed Mori  as Italy beat Austria 2-1 will advance to the semifinals. In the third day of the European Women’s Under-18 challenge was between the teams in the group B: Ukraine against Wales and Italy against Austria.
Italy did not start very well, although the two teams had a similar number of chances and pressure in the attacking midfield. A defensive blunder allowed Austria to go ahead  1 to 0.The  Italian girls reacted promptly and in the second part of the first half pressed much . Despite the determination of Italy the first half ended with the advantage to Austria. In the second half the Italians started right away in another gear and their technical superiority was evident, although perhaps lacking a bit ‘of fluidity to the game. The rewards, however, drew level with a great goal from Giulia Paolacci.With the same result of the first match Italy won  2 to 1 and are on 6 points.
The other game of the day of the Group B was a clash between Ukraine and Wales. The match was hard fought and the final result of 2 to 2 was a fair reflection of the game.
