En blandning av herr B och C reste tidigt i lördags (04:30) iväg till Lund för turneringen Euro Finans Cup. Ett något spretigt startfält med danska Ishøy, Lund A och Engelholm på bra div 1 nivå medan vi, Lund B och C var mer jämspelta div 2 lag.

The impression of RIG Elite girls was strong and aggressive with this first match loss, fueling the motivation to do better. Ultimately leading to two, 2-0 match wins and 1-1 split match to end Saturday second in their group. They were to advance, to the semi finals the next afternoon.

The feeling I got, coaching from the sidelines, was of the girls playing together as one unit. They were connecting with each other quickly and at times I forgot they were so young. They didn´t seem like high school players, they looked and acted Elite on court.

The second day we played a fairly easy semi final against Tönsberg Volley, winning in 2-0. The girls never letting the other team in, staying focused until the match was finished.

The final was electric! All other RIG teams were finished with their tournaments and came to support the girls from the stands. The final was ready, with Ikast KFUM A as the opponent standing in the way of first place for the RIG Elite girls. The match started even and with a lot of energy from both teams.

Unfortunately Ikast KFUM A edged the RIG girls by serving consistently tough and using a strong outside attacker as their ultimate weapon. We lost 0-2 with 21 points in the first set and 17 in the second.

RIG Elite girls received second place in the tournament which was a big improvement from last seasons 5th place. The Elite girls showed their lowest level is not very low and their highest level is truly Elite.
