WFC U19 Girls 2024: Latvia – Switzerland 1-8 (0-4, 1-3, 0-1)

Even though the match between Latvia and Switzerland was obviously a match in the top 8 nations section of the Under 19 Girls World Floorball Championships, it was hard to believe that the underdog Latvia could tease the favorites. However, it was the first match of the tournament for both teams on that 8th May 2024 – so maybe there was a chance for a surprise.

Latvia – Switzerland – Match Facts

Switzerland was in massive control of the match in the first 30 minutes. At this time, the Swiss national team already lead 6-0, with Finja Helbling scoring twice and Mirjam Wyss and Lisa von Arx having two assists each. However, a bench penalty against Dana Misteli in the 35th minute freed Latvia, who played a very brave defense. Even though the power-play did not lead to a score, they acted more self-confident in offense thereafter and were awarded with a goal by Katrina Darta Karklina in the 38th minute. On top of that, Estere Elbrete, who was Latvia’s netminder in the second half of the match, showed a brave performance. Overall, Switzerland scored just twice against her, havng an easy 8-1 victory.
