Kadetten Schaffhausen (SUI) vs C.S. Dinamo Bucuresti (ROU) 28:28 (14:15)

Kadetten gave Toblerone chocolate to their opponents before the match, but the candy was not all Dinamo Bucuresti took with them from Switzerland on Thursday night.

To the pleasure of the many fans the visitors had brought to the BBC Arena, Dinamo managed to secure a 28:28 draw against Kadetten after a close match. Both teams fought hard for the win, but there was never more than two goals between the parties.

Kadetten got the better start and a couple of two-goal leads, but after pushing their defence forwards, Dinamo managed to take the initiative and their own two-goal lead.

Partly through a fine performance from Saied Heidarirad in goal, the visitors managed to stay a goal ahead until 12 minutes before the end.

Two fast break goals from a strong Luka Maros took Kadetten two goals up at 23:21, but a determined away team caught up once again and secured the draw.
