Konyaaltı Belediyespor Women's Handball Team defeated EGO Spor, hosted at home, with a score of 35-34 and won the first of the postponed matches.
Competing for the summit in the Handball Women's Super League, Konyaaltı Belediyespor hosted the EGO Spor team in the first of its two matches, which were postponed in the first half. Closed behind 15-16 in the first half of the match, which took place at Akdeniz University Blue Hall, the Blue Butterflies started the second half with better defense. Having gained the upper hand in the following minutes, Konyaaltı took the lead with consecutive goals from Edanur and Monica and maintained its score until the last second. At the end of the match, the Mavi Butterfly, who went to the stands and greeted the fans, shared the joy of the Konyaaltı Mayor Semih Esen and club managers, who followed the match from the beginning to the end, with their applause.
Konyaaltı Mayor Semih Esen said that both teams showed a very good example of struggle and showed the fans in the hall to watch a very good match. Esen said, "First of all, I congratulate both teams. We watched a very enjoyable match until the end of the match. It is also pleasant that our team is the winner in such a match. Hopefully, we will be victorious in the Üsküdar match on Tuesday and continue our struggle at the top. Also, I would like to thank our fellow citizens who filled the hall today. Good luck to all of them," he said.
Coach Birol Ünsal, on the other hand, said that it was a very difficult match and that they could not play the game they wanted in most of the match, especially in defense. Ünsal said, "First of all, I congratulate our opponent, they wanted the match more than us. They were more enthusiastic than we were, but we won the game after we improved our second half defense a bit. The important thing is to win even when we play badly. We did this today. "I thank my players," he said.
