After the third minute, only Adriána Holejova and Martina Popovcova hit the Slovaks, so their team was getting more and more disadvantaged, the Hungarians were already 16-9 during the break.

Kuczora Csenge contributed to the success with five goals and Szindora Melinda with a 46 percent defense efficiency (28/13). On the other side, Popovcova, Holejova and Erika Rajnohova also closed with four hits. In the 23rd match between the two teams, the 19th Hungarian success came with one defeat and three draws.
