G15: Bording KFUM – Samara Region 13-10 (7-5)
It is perfectly justified to call Bording KFUM from Denmark for the queens of the Partille Cup. The same team has won the tournament in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and 2018. This year the Russian team Samara Region, who impressed much in this year’s edition of the Partille Cup, was defeated in the final. Samara Region made very good resistance, but the Danes finally won by three goals. The G15 girls in Bording KFUM are still unstoppable in the world’s largest handball tournament.
– It’s amazing to win this amazing tournament for the fourth consecutive year! We have won so many times because we have so many players that are good at different things, says Sofie Simonsen.
