It's been two years since Germany took the Coed Slowpitch title away from Great Britain for the first time in the history of European Slowpitch. This year, Germany can repeat its success.
While GB has not recorded single loss throughout the tournament and was sure of their final game attendance, Germany and Ireland had to prove that they belong to the final, today.
Germany recorded its one loss in their game against Ireland, while Ireland only lost to GB. Ireland complicated their situation by losing to the Dutch, and the only chance to make it to the final was to beat the Czech Republic. When the last out of the game was called with the score 19:12 for the Czechs, Germany started celebrating as their participation in the final game was assured by this result.
Tomorrow, the last game-day will take place in Budapest. Hungary placed 11th, and the rest of the teams will play one last game to seize the best possible position in the final standings. The Czech Republic and Ireland will play for Bronze, and Great Britain and Germany will meet again in the final game of the Coed Slowpitch European Championship.
