EUROPEAN BRONZE FOR BHC DUBRAVA

0070 dubravasice na podijuBeach handball club Dubrava is now officialy the third best club in Europe. Our girls did a fantastic job in the four days of the Champions Cup with six wins and two losses, which was enough for the bronze medal. This is the clubs single greatest success, a club which was formed merely six years age now is in the european elite. The bronze is well deserved; the last two matches were also our best, and with a bit of luck, I could be writing a different article- about silver or even gold.

In the semifinal our girls played a home team, Deporte y Empresa Clinicas Rincon. It was a great match against a team who has in their roster several spanish national team players, which are the world champions. The start went to Rincon and with 6 minutes in they were leading 17-10. in that period our panthers did not have an answer for a very diverse play of the opponents. However, after a time-out and a change in tactics we see a different Dubrava and that resulted in a 9-0 series with a score 19-17 for Dubrava. Rincon, in their final attack, equalize the score leaving Dubrava with an attack for victory in the first set. However, Lamas Rodriguez saves the shot from Smiljanić. In the golden goal attack, after getting the ball Rincon misses the goal but the ball bounces of the post and ends up in the hands of their pivot who has no problem scoring. Shocked with the last minute events, our girls have not entered the second set as well as they could. Rincon took the lead of 13-6 and everything pointed to an easy set for them but our girls managed another comeback with 6 unanswered points. Unfortunately, that was all and we had to get ready for the bronze medal match. Barmejo was unstoppable in this match, scoring 16 goals. In our team Smiljanić had 10.

In the bronze medal match we played a dutch team, Camelot, who has been an elite team for a while now. Although dissapointed for not reaching the final our girls played a great offensive match in which they scored a whopping 42 points. In both sets we were in the lead but with no chance of separating more than 4 goals apart exept in the finish of the first set when we had a 6 goal margin. The second set was even closer. The lead was exchanged throughout the set. Our goalkeeper, Simona Hajduk, had some great saves in that time period. In our last attack, with 16-16 on the board, we made a zeppelin, to be specific- Grebenar and Šamarinec made it and brought us the lead. Camelot had the chance to equalize from the right wing but Maus De Borst misses the net. She was the most dangerous player for our goal,scoring 14 points. In Dubrava, Lucija Kelava scored an astonishing 25 points, almost 60% of our goals.

In the final, the home team Rincon from Malaga won the championship after a shoot-out against Hungarys Multichem Szentendrei. Right after the match we talked to two players. The team captain, Kristina Smiljanić, had this to say: „We´re happy, we promised ourselves the medal and we are coming home with one. Some bitterness remains after losing the semifinal because we felt we were good enough to win throughout the match but we cracked a bit under the pressure. From the start we played our best beach handball to date but a bit more luck lacked to win the gold. However, we leave with a medal and a wish that we return next year and try to make a step further. Once again, congratulations to all the girls.“

Our goalkeeper, Simona Hajduk, was also delighted: „We regret for the missed final, but after that defeat we managed to keep our heads high and take the medal which we wanted. Congratulations to the girls who showed true caracter because it wasn´t easy playing just an hour and a half after beeing so close to the final match. Thanks to all of them and thanks to the ones who couldn´t go with us but we know they were with us over the internet. Smola (the coach) did a great job, just like Baško (physio) aswell as Duma who was with us all the time. Now itśs time to celebrate this success accordingly.“

It brings us great pleasure having one of only three individual awards. Lucija Kelava had a great tournament playing a wing scoring 120 goals in 8 matches (15 per match) and took the Best scorer award by a large margin. Jennifer Gutierrez is the MVP and Agnes Kokai the best goalkeeper. In the mens competition the winners are also from Spain. The new champion is Club Balonmano Playa Ciudad de Malaga. In the final they had beaten russian Ekaterinodar after a shoot-out. In the bronze medal match Hir-Sat from Hungary won against polish AFP Plock with 2-0.

GIRLS IN NOVI SAD (Serbia)

0027 NoviSad štrandToday, the international beach handball tournament has stared in Novi Sad and gathered many teams from the region, and some even further than that. Our team BHC Dubrava, the croatian champions, will also compete. In the pool there are thirteen teams from Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania and Italy. The draw has not been kind to us as we were drawn together with the senior and junior Hungary national teams, who we played last week in Zagreb Open. If we pass the group stage, what probably awaits us is the national team of Italy. Although tough, we are not losing sleep over it because our main goal for this year was achieved with winning the national championship. This tour in Novi Sad will serve as an ideal opportunity for some of the girls who played less to prove themselves, and of course to party, something that never lacked on any tournament

HUNGARIANS DECIDING CROATIAN CHAMPIONSHIP

0030 slavljeToday marks the start of the last Croatian championship tournament, Zagreb Open, after which we will know the champions for 2016. While it is all clear in the men's division, it's going to be a true spectacle when it comes to women. Three teams are fighting for the title, and there are also four great Hungarian teams and every one of them can eliminate one of ours from the race. Just to remind you, the defending champion in female competition is BHC Dubrava.

We have 15 men's teams enlisted for Zagreb Open. There are 3 groups with teams from Croatia, Serbia and Hungary. Only theory can take away the chamionship from Detono Zagreb and there is even less chance of someone to take the silver away from us, BHC Dubrava. Detono and Dubrava have played three EBT tours in which they have played the final each time and proved that they are a bit ahead everybody else. Four teams can win the bronze medal- Sesvete, White Boys, Sokol and Čakovec. Our team is placed in group B together with a Hungarian team OVB Dabas Beach Boy'z, KRP Dugi Rat and Sesvete Centro Team, with whom we open the tour.

A neck to neck battle is fought between Dubrava and Detono to win the female cup, with ŽKRP Kontesa Nera waiting for their mistake. Each of those 3 teams is placed in a different gropu together with 3 more teams. Our girls will start to defend the title in group A against Chemo Profili Zagreb and two exellent Hungarian teams: OVB Beach Girls and Multichem Szentendrei NKE Junior which are consisted of junior national team members. It is worth mentioning that the finals will be broadcasted by Arena Sport TV which is a huge achievement for our sport and a motive to further development.
