After losing to the Netherlands in the battle for first place, Greece returned to winning ways. The women’s national polo team beat Germany 13-3 in matchday 4 of the first group of the European Championship in Split and reached their third victory. There is now one game left against Croatia, with the Kameno players aiming for the quarterfinals.
Greece entered the game with their engines off, but the difference in capacity was obvious. The players of Alexia Kamenos played a good defense, did not let the ball reach the goalkeeper and scored two goals against Patra and Xenaki. In fact, our national team had three goals.
The national team stepped on the gas in the second eight minutes and scored six goals with Myriokephalitaki scoring three times and Greece’s offensive function being exemplary. The defense relaxed and Germany responded with two separate goals to reduce it to 3-8 at the end of the half.
In the third eight minutes, Greece scored three more goals, while also missing a penalty. The Kameno players were in complete control and were not threatened by the German players.
The last eight minutes were now of a procedural nature. Greece finished the game with two goals, one by Santa and another by Myriokephalitakis.
