Olympia Shoot Down Rivals Great Dane

OLYMPIA Women boosted their title hopes when they recorded a 25-20 victory over rivals Great Dane in their latest National League clash at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in London.

The fate of the match was close right down to the final couple of minutes, but Olympia maintained their composure and secured a victory which sees them go second in the table.

With several victories under their belts already over guest teams, it was Olympia’s first league win.

But they face another stiff test this Sunday when they take on leaders Ruislip Eagles who have won both their league matches so far. Also at Crystal Palace, Sunday’s match begins at 12noon.

Four goals from Ari Bekker helped Olympia to take a narrow 11-10 lead at half time, while Linda Bourkab scored three.

After the break Olympia found the net with increasing frequency, with Bekker adding another four to finish as the top scorer. Bourkab also doubled her goal tally to finish with six.

For Great Dane, Adela Jensouska scored five goals and Alexandra Garaloska and Delphine Moral both scored four, but it was not enough.

This Sunday’s Ruislip versus Olympia clash will see in-form Eagles player Telek - who has netted 16 goals in their two league games so far - line up opposite Bekker who scored eight on Sunday.
