Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2017?
Baltic Handball legue
The weekend of ten games with all twelve teams involved produced some great quality handball and many "firsts"! ZTR Zaporozhye suffered their first defeat of the season, while Celtnieks Riga and HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper collected first points and we witnessed the first draw of the 2017/18 BHL season. Sunday also saw a win by the biggest margin for many years, as Cocks Riihimäki beat Viljandi HC by 29 goals.
For the first time this season, all 12 clubs in the Baltic Handball League will be in action on the same weekend. The regular season reaches halfway stage and important points are up for grabs in ten matches across the Baltics and Finland. The most happy handball fans this weekend should be found in Kehra, as the city hosts four matches involving six teams over two days!
Ten of the twelve teams were in action during Baltic Handball League's second full weekend of the 2017/18 season. Only two teams managed to record two victories, while five had to settle for one win and three clubs did not collect any points from this weekend. The two biggest winners – Cocks Riihimäki and Serviti Põlva also top the group standings.
Baltic Handball League's second full weekend of the 2017/18 season is ahead with ten teams out of twelve competing. A total of 9 matches will be played across all three Baltic States. The title-holder Cocks Riihimäki will travel to Lithuania, while four teams are still without points and are definitely eager to whipe out the zero in the league table.
One match was played in Baltic Handball League with last season's second and third placed teams meeting one week earlier than the rest of the participants. In a very even match in Zaporozhye, the hosts ZTR beat SKA Minsk 31-29 (15-16) and took command in Group B. ZTR has now three wins and six points with SKA remaining on four points in second place.
Before Baltic Handball League resumes next weekend in full swing, one very important match will be played this Saturday, as Group B leaders and last season's Top 3 finishers ZTR Zaporozhye and SKA Minsk will meet in Ukraine. The match will start 17:00 local time in the sports hall of ZTR.
