    With a huge win in the Gr&A Ring;K-J æep Arena against Liberbank Cuenca, Holstebro did everything they are able to maintain their EHF Cup Quarter-final anticipates alive. Now they all can do after is await the result from the Group D game between both Granollers and GOG on Sunday evening. Even a GOG conquer will ship Holstebro into the quarter final, while GOG will book the ticket if they can prevent a defeat in Spain.

    At early phases, Holstebro had several two-goal leads and one three-goal guide, if they led 6:3 after 1-2 minutes, but Cuenca kept coming back.

    Since Cuenca failed to dent for the previous seven minutes of their first halfof Holstebro travelled from 12:12 to a 19:12 half time courtesy of a flurry of successful fast fractures.

    Throughout a fruitful 5-1 defence, a nice performance from Simon Gade in goal and efficient fast breaks, the home team maintained increasing their lead in the 2nd half until these were 1-2 goals beforehand.

    With no fewer than 15 goals, left wing Magnus Bramming made a vital contribution to keeping his team’s quarter final fantasies alive.
