Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2017?
Baltic Handball legue
There was no similar shock results as at the World Championships in France this weekend in Baltic Handball League, but they were surely interesting two days with very tight matches. Out of 9 matches, 6 finished with the winning margin being five goals or smaller, in addition to one draw.
While most of the "handball-eyes" may be locked in direction of France, where the World Championships are in full speed, Baltic Handball League also returns from a month-long break. This weekend 9 matches will take place with Estonia becoming the main battleground, as a total of 6 games will be played in Põlva, Viljandi and Kehra.
The final Baltic Handball League weekend of 2016 brought joy to some teams and disappointment for others, but it was surely an exciting weekend. Cocks Riihimäki, HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper and Viljandi HC were the most successful teams, recording two wins, while three-time winner SKA Minsk suffered already their third defeat of the season and VHC Šviesa Vilnius picked up first points.
Baltic Handball League's group stage is reaching halfway – after coming weekend all teams have played half of the games and can go on a deserved Christmas-break. But before that a great weekend is ahead with 8 matches in 4 countries, including some top-of-the-table clashes, BHL classic encounters and an historical match in Ukraine.
Weekend in Baltic Handball League offered everything – tough battles, one-goal wins, draws and some clear superiorities. Curiously only two teams out of ten in action managed to take four points – Serviti Põlva and SKA Minsk won both their games, while ZTR Zaporozhye also continues to be unbeaten.
Last minute changes to BHL schedule on Sunday, 13th November: Dragunas Klaipeda - ZTR Zaporozhye will start at 15:00 and not at 14:00 as previously announced due to ZTR's very late match on Saturday. Apologies for any inconviences.
