Portugal win Women’s 17 EHF Championship – Lithuania

Klaipeda in Lithuania wrapped up its final day of competition in the Women’s 17 EHF Championship, as the hosts suffered a tight defeat against Portugal in the final. Turkey claimed bronze in the 3/4 Placement Match, beating Finland.

Final

Everything had been in place to make this a perfect tournament for the Lithuanians but they fell at the final hurdle in the last 30 minutes.

Leading 14:13 against the Portuguese at half-time, their opponents came back strongly in the second half, to outscore them by two in the half (12:10) and one overall to win 25:24.

Beatriz Fabiana Faria Sousa – the Portuguese goal machine – continued her production rate with nine goals in a performance that ensured her side would be playing in the Women's 17 and 19 EHF EURO events in 2019.

Bronze/Placement Match 3/4

Turkey came from behind to win bronze with their devastating strike duo of Beyzanur Turkyilmaz (9 goals) and Gulcan Tugel (8) serving up over half of the Turkish goals against a Finland team who had led by three at the break (13:10).

Ellen Norrgrann also scored nine in the game, but her haul was not enough to agonisingly miss out on a podium place as the Finns will be kicking themselves for missing five of their 10 seven-metre penalties awarded.

Placement Matches 5-10

Fifth place at Lithuania 2017 went to Belarus who beat neighbours Ukraine 27:17 (13:10) with Yana Chabrova and Palina Siniauskaya scoring five each for Belarus and Yana Borysevych scoring a handful for Ukraine.

In the 7/8 placement match, nine goals from Ramona Vesna Manojlovic were more than enough for Italy to defeat Great Britain 36:13. The tough Italian defence stood firm, restricting the British team to just six first-half goals and scoring 19 themselves.

Georgia beat Latvia 23:20 (11:10) to ensure they did not finish last in the competition, finishing ninth, despite Nino Shakhulovi being shown a red card in the 54th minute after receiving three two-minute suspensions. Latvia put up a fight, but with a restricted side of just 10 players available, and after conceding nine seven-metre penalties of which Georgia scored eight, it was a hard task for them to get back into the game.
