VHC Šviesa Vilnius
HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper
Which team will win Baltic Handball League 2020?
Baltic Handball League
All twelve BHL clubs were in either domestic or international action last week with the two Latvian sides especially busy. In all three Baltic States there were important clashes between BHL clubs, while ZTR Zaporozhye's Dmytro Artemenko set a record of the season by scoring 18 goals in an Ukrainian league match.
Three days with nine matches in four Baltic cities produced some high quality handball. VHC Šviesa Vilnius and ZTR Zaporozhye were the biggest winners, collecting four points over the weekend, while HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper also retained their one hundred per cent record. Group A is led by SKA Minsk and ZTR on five points, as Šviesa and Kehra are on top of Group B with three wins out of three games.
The second full weekend of new season's Baltic Handball League is ahead and ten teams will play nine matches allover the Baltic States, as matches are taking place in Klaipeda, Dobele, Riga, Tallinn and Viljandi. Three teams are still without points and they are surely eager whipe the zero off from the league table.
During the international week all six countries involved in Baltic Handball League had their respective national teams in action. Finland started their 2021 World Championship qualifying campaign with a defeat and a win, Estonia was eliminated in Turkey, Belarus took two friendly wins over Lithuania, Latvia won and lost against Luxembourg, while Ukraine capitulated twice in Tunisia.
To use poker terms, a "full house" was achieved last week by Baltic Handball League clubs. Nine teams were in action in different domestic and international competitions, playing 12 games and winning them all! The busiest side was Latvian champion ZRHK Tenax Dobele, who claimed three domestic league victories inside five days.
It was a busy week for Baltic Handball League clubs in Europe, as across three continental competitions seven matches were played involving BHL sides. ZTR Zaporozhye, SKA Minsk and ZRHK Tenax Dobele were three teams that advanced to the next round in their respective competitions, while VHC Šviesa Vilnius and HC Tallinn were eliminated.
