The U12 Korfball Grand Final
The atmosphere was tense. Even though Boeckenberg KC wentundefeated during qualifiers, that didn’t mean that this match was going to be a piece of cake. Both teams had a very strong defense and made very little mistakes in their positioning and tactics.
However, after just 3 minutes in the first half of the game Boeckenberg KC takes the lead. The match goes on. Passes are given, shots attempted and defenses held. It seems that both teams are equally matched until Boeckenberg KC breaks through Temse KC’s defense and expands their lead. In the final moments of the first half, with 9 seconds remaining on the clock, they made their lead even bigger. Ending the first half 1-4.
Continuously, the second half picked up where the first had ended. Tricky defense tactics go back and forth which leaves almost no space for a goal. The tension is increasing. Moreover, both teams are able to score a goal each. Fans are on the edge of their seats as the minutes count.
Finally, the referee gives the signal. The match has reached its end. With a smile on their face Boeckenberg KC, our GEN-Champions, are victorious. All their hard work paid of. The scoreboard counts 2-5. Fans of both teams witnessed a fair and tense game.
Congratulations Boeckenberg KC – U12 Panthers !!
