The men from HC Linz made the surprise in the semifinals of the HLA perfect!
The people of Linz also won the second game of the “Best-Of-Three” series against handball champion UHK Krems on Wednesday and thus sensationally advanced to the final as number 7 of the regular round. Linz ultimately won at home after a high lead by almost 31:30 (13:12). The opponent in the final will be determined in the Viennese derby between the Fivers Margareten and Westwien. With seven goals, the Linzers were already ahead in the second half, but made it exciting again in the end. A converted seven-meter throw sealed the end for Krems seconds before the end. Last but not least, the guarantor of success for the home side was goalkeeper veteran Markus Bokesch, who will end his career after this season.Krems-Stütze Hasecic: “We just didn’t get anything together!” he said in the ORF interview. “We just didn’t get anything together, nothing succeeded,” said Krems support Kenan Hasecic. In 1996 the people of Linz were handball champions for the last time as ASKÖ Linz. In 2003 they reached the final again, then they lost to HC Hard. This year the opponent in the final will definitely come from Vienna: Margareten leads 1-0 after a clear away win against West Wien, the second and possibly last game on Thursday (8:20 p.m.) The final games in the fight for the 2022/23 championship title will then take place on Saturday, June 3rd, Wednesday, June 7th and – if necessary – on Sunday, June 11th.
