​HC Ohrid powerless against voracious Dragons

Second leg of the second qualification round of the EHF Cup ended with another victory for the blue and white: 44-26


After the 17 goals advantage reached the day before (37-20), Porto again beat HC Ohrid (44-26), at Dragão Caixa, this Sunday, and qualified to the third qualification round of the EHF Cup, the last before the group stage of the competition.

Only a disaster would prevent the team led by Lars Walther (who celebrated his 52nd anniversary today) from moving forward to the next stage, but the overwhelming first-half of FC Porto made the second a mere formality: 25-13 was the blue and white advantage for the break. The second-half was also dominated by the Dragons, and the final numbers show the difference is potential between FC Porto and HC Ohrid: 44-26.

“This kind of matches are always more difficult, exactly because we won by 17 the day before. It's hard for players to be on the same level with the same level of concentration, but I saw a lot of good things and I think we played a good match. Miguel Martins was particularly good and we must not forget that he is only 19 years old. I'm happy and I think we are ready for the next round. Winning is always important and it boosts confidence”, Lars Walther stated, at the end of the match, talking to Porto Canal.
