We’re still four weeks apart from the 2018/19 season’s Final Four, but a week ago an important decision was made and also the BHL Final Four occurs at Minsk this year. Semi-finals will be played on 20th April and also third-place play off and the final on after day. The venue for all games is Uruchye Sports Palace.

The pairs for the semi-finals are clear, as Dragunas Klaipeda meets ZTR Zaporozhye as well as also the hosts SKA Minsk will simply take on title holder Cocks Riihimäki. Specific match program will be announced soon, when the discussions with TV-broadcasters have been finished.

Last week, only a couple of the Final Four participants were in activity. ZTR Zaporozhye had possibly the simplest game possible contrary to the bottom side of league SKA Lviv. They were 23:5 upward at half-time and won 50:12 (Kyrylo Korielov 1-1 along with Dmytro Artemenko 10 goals).

Cocks Riihimäki bounced back after having a draw against Dicken Helsinki last week and then defeated the identical team 28:23 (Teemu Tamminen 9 goals). One of the heroes at the success was Cocks’ Russian goalkeeper Vitalii Shitsko, making millions of 18 saves!

From the already eliminated teams, the action continued in Estonia and Latvia. Serviti Põlva beat co op Põlva 33:25 (Alfred Timmo 7), while Viljandi H-C suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of SK Tapa, losing 14:20 (Aleksander Pertelson 3).

Latvian championships have already reached the semi-final stage. Two wins are needed to qualify for the final.
