Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2019?
Baltic Handball League
Regular season of 2018/19 Baltic Handball League will end in the coming weekend and what a final two days we will have in the competition. SKA Minsk and ZTR Zaporozhye will go head-to-head in Minsk to determine the direct qualifier for the Final Four, while other three places in Group A are all still unclear. In Group B there is a three-horse race for two places.
Two postponed matches were played last week in Baltic Handball League, as Cocks Riihimäki visited the Eastern-most clubs of the BHL. The title-holder returns with just a point, having lost to SKA Minsk and playing a draw against ZTR Zaporozhye.
Last week the current champion of Baltic Handball League, Cocks Riihimäki started to catch up with the rest of the teams in Group A and played two of their four postponed matches. Serviti Põlva surprisingly delivered Cocks their third defeat of the season before the Finns beat Dragunas Klaipeda away.
The Baltic Handball League weekend may have held only six matches, but what tight contests and passionate battles they were! One draw, two one-goal victories and in general, a real fight for points. Perhaps one figure proving the passion is that in just six games the referees awarded 56 two-minute suspensions!
Another weekend of Baltic Handball League is ahead and this time the action will be concentrated on Group B. Five very important games will be played in Riga, Dobele and Viljandi. Group A will continue with just one game, but a crucial one as well, as Dragunas Klaipeda will host Serviti Põlva.
Three days of Baltic Handball League action offered everything – we had big wins, tight matches, draws, surprises and individual heroics. In the stronger Group A perhaps surprisingly the biggest winner over three days was Dragunas Klaipeda, claiming three points. In Group B, ZRHK Tenax Dobele added four points and became the new leader.
