London 2012 - GB women keep hopes alive
A dramatic victory for Great Britain's handball women over Slovakia gave a shot in the arm to their World Championship qualifying hopes.
GB won the clash 27-26 thanks to Kathryn Fudge's late goal, but it could have gone either way throughout the match with the sides level at 15-15 at half time.
Seven goals from Kelsi Fairbrother (pictured) underpinned Great Britain's victory, though the entire team played much better than they had during their opening day loss to Austria.
"Slovakia were the top seeds going into this competition, and although they aren't as strong as many people thought this is still a good win and a great day for British Handball," said head coach Jesper Holmris.
"Everybody played well, and our defence was better than yesterday, what is great about this win is that everything that went wrong against Austria we corrected for this game.
"We're looking forward to playing Cyprus and Poland in our final two matches now."
Ewa Palies found the net six times, while Lyn Byl, Kathryn Fudge and Britt Goodwin all scored three times.
Britain's remaining matches are on December 3 against Cyprus and December against Poland.
