With the European Deaf Futsal Championships having wrapped up yesterday in Sofia, Bulgaria, Jacobus Casteluns and Danielle Evans finished the tournament as the leading scorers in the men’s and women’s competitions respectively. The Netherlands’ Casteluns had 18 total goals, seven more than the next highest scorers, Turkey’s Ibrahim Güzel and and the Ukraine’s Volodymyr Riy. England’s Evans scored 14 total goals, one more than Sweden’s Matilda Jansson, and four more than Russia’s Svetlana Ivanova and Italy’s Michela Bottini.



Four of Evans’s goals came in the bronze medal match against Spain.  Evan’s goal scorer prowess was key in her team qualifying for the semi-finals, as she put in the goal that put the English ahead of Belgium after her team let in an early goal.  That game eventually finished 6 – 1, setting up the English to play against eventual silver medalists Germany.  In group play against Turkey, Evans scored three goals while teammate Emma Brown put in five and Zara Musker put in three in a game that finished 16 – 0.


On the men’s side, Ukraine finished the competition in first, while Russia was second and the Netherlands third.  On the women’s side, Russia finished first, Germany second and England third.
