Semi-Final Switzerland-Ukraine, April 16th, 15-10 in Zerkow
After a great start by the Swiss which saw them score an early try, the Ukranians fought back and retained the advantage, going into the break with a 10-7 lead. Playing into the wind, Ukraine continued to dominate but could not translate that on to the scoreboard, allowing a revitalised Swiss side to reply with a good try which went unconverted. A Ukranian yellow card as the match drew to the end allowed Switzerland to book their place in the final with a last minute penalty kick. (source: FIRA-AER Website)
