Sofia Joelsson was one of the best players in IKSU when they won the Champions Cup again. Joelsson scored two goals and had one assist in the victory against Vitkovice from Czech Republic.
How was it to play today?
– It was fun but very though. They played very physical which the referees allowed so we just had to accept that and play, says Sofia Joelsson to TloorballToday.
Why did you win the final?
– We have more skillful players individually. I think they were a strong team but today we showed that we are a better team. We manage to score on the chances we had and did it a little better than them. I do think that Vitkovice did a very good game though.
How was it to face international teams in Champions Cup?
– We are not used to this type of physical play in the Swedish Super League. It makes it more difficult for us when the referees allow this type of play. Maybe it could have been something similar in SSL but then the referees need to accept tougher duels like they do on international level.
How will you celebrate this title?
– We will celebrate some in our dressing room before we will jump on the bus back home to Umeå. I think we will celebrate this win somehow during the weekend when we are home.
