Rivas head coach Jose Ignacio Hernandez
"We knew that BLMA play a quick game and are good on defence. We have a young team, and the absence of Frida Eldebrink, our best offence player, was a big handicap. The Spanish championship is hard, and playing every three days is demanding. We made some bad decisions at the end of the game- we could have won here, but..."
Rivas player Rachel Allison
"It was a good match, athletic and fast, with both teams playing good defence- the score was close right until the end."
BLMA head coach Valery Demory
"We have some young players who have not played in this competition before, so we are lacking experience and maturity in certain situations and decisions, but we are learning fast. We haven't fixed an objective in this competition other than to qualify from the group stage, but playing this type of match brings us a lot of experience."
BLMA player Gaelle Skrela
"We managed to win a tight match by fighting to the finish. We wanted to win regardless of the score. We played a good game on defence."
