Which teams qualify from quarterfinals to Final 4?
Baltic Handball League
Week by week competitions are coming to an end in six countries of the Baltic Handball League. Last week was a great one for two of this season's BHL Final Four participants – Dragunas Klaipeda successfully defended their Lithuanian league title, while SKA Minsk surprised HC Meshkov Brest in the Belarussian Cup final!
The first club from Baltic Handball League to win a domestic title in 2018/19 season is ZRHK Tenax Dobele! They defended their Latvian title in style, beating fellow BHL-team Celtnieks Riga with three straight victories.
It's this time of the year, where every game – and even every goal – counts, as play-offs are being played in three Baltic countries and Finland. Last week, there was plenty of drama in Latvian final and a slightly surprising outcome in Estonian semi-final.
While Baltic Handball League's 2018/19 season finished a week ago, the domestic leagues in all six countries involved in BHL are continuing and soon reaching their culmination. Especially in the three Baltic States, the play-off matches last week reached finals in Latvia and semi-final stage in Estonia and Lithuania.
What a Final Four it was to end the 2018/19 season in Baltic Handball League. Three extremely tight matches and the final was no different – Cocks Riihimäki became champions for the fourth consecutive year, beating ZTR Zaporozhye 23:22 (10:11). Bronze-medals went to SKA Minsk, who beat Dragunas Klaipeda 27:26 (13:13).
2018/19 season in Baltic Handball League has only two matches left. In the semi-finals Cocks Riihimäki defeated the Final Four hosts SKA Minsk in dramatic encounter after penalty throws 26:24 (11:12, 22:22) and ZTR Zaporozhye beat Dragunas Klaipeda 33:22 (19:11).
