Futsal: Luxol edge past Hammarby

Luxol bounced back from the defeat to Haladas with a 3-2 win over Swedish side Hammarby in another match from Group 5 of the UEFA Futsal Champions League main round at the University Sports Hall on Thursday.

Ignatius Malki handed Hammarby an early lead but an early own goal by Jonatan Almendra Cifuentes levelled matters. Hammarby were quick to regain the lead through Gabriel Diaz but Hebberth Bolt equalised for Luxol and late in the game Jean Costa notched the winner.

In another match on Thursday, Haladas defeated Record Bielsko-Biala of Poland 4-3 to register their second win. Luxol face Record Bielsko-Biala on Saturday.
