Vardar Loses SEHA Handball League Final to Defending Champions Veszprem

Vardar lost in the final of the SEHA regional handball league to the Hungarian Veszprem team on Sunday evening. Defending champions Veszprem beat Vardar 28:26 in a bitterly contested match in Varazhdin.

"We lost, but we played very well. The first 15 minutes were fantastic, with fast paced playing, and we performed excellent. Veszprem beat us in the defense. We played at full capacity, but we still lacked a little more energy beat Veszprem. They are a great team and a major candidate for every trophy. I congratulate my players who showed they have hunger for success", said Vardar coach Raul Gonzales following the match.

Momir Ilic scored seven goals for Veszprem, the most during the game, but had to withdraw in the second half due to an injury. Luka Cindric, with five goals, was the best scorer for Vardar, while Dushebaev and Dibirov added four each. Goalkeeper Arpad Sterbik had nine saves.

Vardar was the only team that managed to beat Veszprem in the SEHA league, and in this year's league it tied two games against them. The teams meet again in 20 days in Skopje, in the Champion's League quarter-­finals.
