Baltic Handball legue
On Saturday, Estonia is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its independence and what better way to do it than on the handball floor! All four Estonian teams will be in action at home this weekend, but there are also important games to be played in Kaunas and Riihimäki.
What a fascinating weekend we had in Baltic Handball League! Undefeated Serviti Põlva suffered first loss, title-holder Cocks Riihimäki was made to fight in Dobele, a draw in Estonian-derby, personal scoring record of the season and two quarter-final places still to be decided in the remaining nine matches.
Baltic Handball League's regular season is entering crucial stages, after this weekend all teams will only have either one or two games to be played. And one thing is certain – that almost nothing is yet certain… All twelve clubs still have chances to qualify for the quarter-finals and while Group A win is probably going towards title-holder Cocks Riihimäki, then in Group B the final placings of top three will go down the wire.
Two games were played in Baltic Handball League last weekend with SKA Minsk visiting Southern Estonia. On Saturday, SKA was clearly better over HC Tallinn, taking a 35-22 win, but on Sunday it was the second draw of the season against Serviti Põlva, this time 29-29.
Baltic Handball League is moving on almost non-stop, this weekend we have two games in Southern Estonia, as SKA Minsk will play HC Tallinn in Valga and visits Serviti Põlva the following day.
Fourth full weekend of the 2017/18 Baltic Handball League was arguably one, which produced most fascinating and in some cases, even surprising results. Nine matches brought us one draw and on six occasions the winning margin was four goals or less. Especially the situation in Group A became very interesting.
