IL Flint got a good start in Partille Cup
The Norwegian team won a close game against Strandby-Elling IF from Denmark.
IL Flint finally got to do what they enjoy the most, playing handball against international opposition.
– We had some issues with our offense for a period but overall we played a good game, says Emelie Flodin, coach.
It was a close and exciting game between Flint and Strandby-Elling IF from Denmark. For both teams it was the first game of Partille Cup. At one point in the second half it looked like Flint had a comfortable lead with the score 13 - 7. The Danes however managed to close to score to 13 - 12 before Flints Pernille Sörensen scored the final goal of the game, making it 14 - 12.
Flodin has been a part of Partille Cup "her whole life" and is pleased that her team now gets to share in the experience.
– The thing about Partille Cup I love the most is probably the feeling of community. All these people from different countries and cultures use handball as a way to get to know other people, she says.
After the game it was time to get ready for the opening ceremony, something both the coach and the players looked forward to.
