Viborg took the lead in the “Battle of Scandinavia”

Viborg took the lead in the “Battle of Scandinavia”

Viborg HK won the first of two matches in the “Battle of Scandinavia” against Larvik HK Saturday evening. With the result 27-21 Viborg have six goals advantage when they travel to Norway and Larvik next weekend.

It was a real battle who found place in Viborg Stadionhal Saturday. Both teams started the match a little nervous before they found the rythm and followed each other to the break at 13-13.

Larvik did not manage to follow the last years champions and lost the match 27-21. But, both teams coaches says that nothing is sure yet.

– Six goals is not much in handball, that’s only three minutes where we’re not on top and Larvik can equalize the lead with fastbreaks, says Viborg coach Jakob Vestergaard.

Larvik HK coach Karl Erik Bøhn agrees with Vestergaard.

– We will do our best and it’s clear that we didn’t play at our best today. We have a lot more to go on, he tells Timeoutmag.com after the match Saturday.
