Jørgensen on fire in Metz’s Big Victory

Kristina Jørgensen made handball look easy. The Dane scored a remarkable eleven goals as her team, Metz, dominated Rapid Bucharest in Sunday’s Champions League match.

On Sunday, Metz and Rapid Bucharest faced each other in a meeting that will likely be crucial in the battle for playoff spots in the spring. But for those who had hoped for a thrilling battle, they left the arena disappointed.

This is because in Metz, there is Danish player Kristina Jørgensen. The 25-year-old made a name for herself as a young talent and has continued on that path. However, Sunday’s game exceeded even Jørgensen’s high expectations.

The center-back was a constant threat and scored eleven goals herself while also creating opportunities for her teammates to exploit the Romanian guests. After Jørgensen’s performance, it’s no surprise that the score ran away, and after 60 minutes of play, it was clear that Metz had won comfortably with a score of 33-22.

Norwegian Dominance in Esbjerg

In the second late match on Sunday, Danish Esbjerg faced Hungarian Ferencvaros, a game that turned out to be much more evenly contested than Metz versus Rapid Bucharest. However, despite guest player Andrea Lekic’s eight goals, it wasn’t enough.

Esbjerg’s squad includes a significant portion of the core of the Norwegian national team, and they showcased their class. The Norwegian lineup, led by Nora Mørk, accounted for 21 of the home team’s 27 goals in a 27-22 victory.

As a result, Esbjerg moved up to second place in the group with eight points. Ferencvaros, on the other hand, remains winless and sits at the bottom of the group.
