Benfica flies to the Female League Cup semifinals, after Gijon and Palau


Four wide victories in this fourth of the five rounds of matchday of the first phase of the Female League Cup. The third to get a ticket to the Semi-Final is Benfica, winner 10-1 at home to the French Coutras (hattrick for Marlene Sousa), and with the direct clashes ahead against Voltregà and Coutras is mathematically in the Semifinals as second classified, where it will meet the first of Group A. Telecable Gijón continues its undefeated run by also winning the fourth and final qualifying game, 2-9 at the home of the French Noisy Le Grand (poker for Nuria Obeso). The same superiority is also seen on the Italian rink of Roller Matera, where Fenie Energie Cerdanyola comes out victorious for 1-8 (two for Crespo and Xicota). Manlleu also scored with many goals, 10-0 to the portuguese Sanjoanense (3 for Maria Diez). Now both Martinelia and Cerdanyola are paired with six points in the standings and the direct clash next Thursday will be decisive, while on the last day Saturday 9 April the classification of Group B will be decided.
