MATCH REVIEW: Teams Tvis Holstebro were leading by 10 goals against OCI-LIONS, but the Dutch team managed to reduce the gap at the end
Holstebro take clear home win against Dutch champions
Team Tvis Holstebro, who currently share the lead in the Danish league with VELUX EHF Champions League participants Skjern Handbold, doubled their number of points through their 29:24 win at home against OCI-LIONS on Sunday afternoon, but the home team was chasing a much bigger win during the game.

Holstebro had no problems creating scoring opportunities against the Dutch 3-3 defence, but they had more trouble when the LIONS went back into a 6-0 formation.
This tactical step from LIONS coach Monique Tijsterman played a big part in the visitors managing to reduce a 10-goal deficit from 24:14 in the second half to a five-goal defeat.
“It is frustrating, as we obviously wanted to score as many goals as possible and win as big as possible,” said Holstebro's right back and Danish international Peter Balling.
Team Tvis Holstebro are now on four points just like HBC Nantes and Frisch Auf Göppingen, while OCI-LIONS are still on zero.
