(September 10, 2010)
Norway has the honour of kicking off the first game of EBSC’s Fall Season, in this 35th anniversary of the Club’s founding. We open up the season against Scotland. Coached by Robert Stein, this should provide a tough opening match for the Norway squad. Coming off eight pre-season practices, however, Coach Sheard says "Our Norwegian girls are ready to take on the world!". No doubt the team hopes to continue with the Scots where the Vikings left off a century ago.
Internationally, the Scots are ranked 25th in the World, but coming in second place in their group stage was not good enough for Scotland to qualify for next summer’s World Cup, which they will have to watch on television. Norway’s women, on the other hand, won their group and just have to polish off Ukraine tomorrow and Wednesday to book their place in Germany next summer. the Norwegians are currently ranked 7th.
