Kolding (AP) – The German handball women have missed the semifinals at the European Championship. The DHB-squad lost their last main round game against Croatia on Tuesday at 8:23 PM (12:12 PM) and was eliminated from the tournament.
To get ahead, the team of national coach Henk Groener needed a win with at least two goals ahead. The best German pitcher was Julia Maidhof with nine goals. Thanks to their success, the Croats took second place in Group II behind record European champions Norway and will play for medals in Herning from Friday.
