World Winners Cup glory for Mriya-2006
The moment that Mriya-2006 and São Pedro had been waiting for was here, as the Women’s World Winners Cup was ready to start.
The Brazilian side took the lead in the final, as Maiara found the net with less than four minutes played in Alghero. However, the Ukrainian side turned the game around through an equaliser from Kostiuk, and minutes later Bednarska put Mriya-2006 ahead to lead 2-1 after 12 minutes played.
With the next goal being crucial in the fixture, both sides were desperate to add to their tallies, but neither side could beat their opposition goalkeeper until Klipachenko popped up with three minutes left in the period, to make the score 3-1.
Dubytska gave the Ukrainian team some breathing space at the start of the third period, finding the top-right corner from a tight angle, however, Tai found São Pedro’s second goal of the match three minutes later. The final two goals of the match were split between the two teams, with Dekhtiar’s shot from range finding the net and Tai completed her brace late on.
