Terrassa Bonaire are the champions of Europe after beating AIS Playas de San Javier 5-3 in the final.
The all-Spanish final had plenty of action and drama and started on a high tempo with San Javier breaking the deadlock through Anaelle Wiard. But Terrassa’s reaction was immediate with Cris scoring from a free-kick. San Javier would be in advantage again after Paloma found her way to the goal but once again Cris equalised shortly after, showing all her quality in front of the target.
The game went leveled into the second period and San Javier celebrated the lead once again as Andrea headed it home to make it 3-2.
Terrasa never backed down and were rewarded in the final six minutes. Estela equalised with a well-placed overhead-kick and 30 seconds later Chami put Terrassa leading for the first time in the match. San Javier went all-out looking to bounce back but it was goalkeeper Alba with a shot from far to seal the deal and crown Terrassa Bonaire as champions of Europe.
Honourable third place for Marseille
Marseille BT finished on the podium after beating Higicontrol Melilla. The Frech had a strong start with Melissa Gomes particularly inspired scoring with just two minutes played and then taking the shot that Blanc deflected to make it 2-0. Belkiri scored Marseille’s third one and a half minute before the break and with that result the French found themselves in a comfortable position to control the match. There were no changes to the scoreboard until the third period when with a little less than five minutes to go, goalkeeper Haughton scored from coast-to-coast to give back some hope to Higicontrol. Hope that grew when Molly Clark netted a penalty to make it 3-2 90 seconds before the end, but the Spanish reaction came too late and the French took the third place.
FC10 Ladies finished the tournament on a high beating CFP Cáceres in the match to define the 5th place. The Polish were always ahead in the scoreboard with Davydenko and goalkeeper Slavych scoring in the first period. Raquel made it 2-1 but Król and Łężak renewed FC10 Ladies’ comfort on the scoreboard before going into the third period. Król would finish the match with a brace with Kempson scoring the goal that put the final result in 6-3.
With Érica Ferreira’s brace in the first period it seemed that AD Pastéis were going to take the 7th place but Rappiranhas reacted with a brace form Cavelti on the second period, and Kälin confirmed the comeback making it 3-2 on the scoreboard.
In the award ceremony Terrassa’s Cris was named the most valuable player of the tournament while Playa de San Javier’s Laia won the best goalkeeper award. Melissa Gomes from Marseille BT scored 9 goals to claim the competition’s top goalscorer award.
