Norway's handball women in World Cup Semis
« on: December 13, 2007, 09:13:12 PM »
In Paris today the Norway women beat South Korea 35-24 in handball in the evening's quarter-final.  Gøril Snorroeggen scored eight goals.  Trainer Marit Breivik's players ran over South Korea in the second half.

Norway will meet Germany in their semifinal on Saturday.  Maybe they can go one better than their football sisters . .

In Paris on Saturday Norway's women advanced to the Final of the World Cup in handball by beating Germany in a 33-30 thriller after leading 19-16 at half time.

They will now meet the favourites, Russia, who beat Romania 30-20.

Russia's women took the handball World Cup today in Paris with a 29-24 win over Norway.

The scores remained close through the match but Russia were always narrowly ahead.  Norway came back to 21-22 eleven minutes before the end, but the Russians proved too strong in the final minutes despite finishing with two players on a 2-minute suspension. 
Alltid. Uansett.

Just like Norway's fotballjentene, håndballjentene will also have another chance to "go for the gold" in China next summer.   8)

'Handball girls' to seek revenge in Beijing

Norway's popular women's handball team, known as the handballjentene (handball girls), were disappointed to "only" win silver at the World Championships over the weekend. They want revenge at the Summer Olympics in about eight months.
