Men's Premier Handball League: GD and Olympia Make it Two from Two

Olympia and London GD made it two wins from two games, while Nottingham got their campaign off to a winning start.

Olympia beat West London Eagles 43-21, while GD won 33-21 against Cambridge. Nottingham were 31-20 victors over Carshalton Titans.

Olympia led 12-7 at the break against Eagles, but pulled away in the second period to take maximum points. Tome Salgado top-scored for Olympia with 13 goals, while Mouzer Nofalia lead the way for Eagles, beating the keeper six times. 

Olympia head GD at the top of the table on goal difference, while Eagles prop up the table, again through goal difference, after losing their first two games.

10 goals from Diego Llorente helped GD to victory and consign Cambridge to two defeats to open the season. The Capital city side were in control at half time with an 18-9 lead. The second half was a closer affair as GD slightly increased their advantage. Alejandro Costa Garcia and Joshua Barker both weighed in with six goals for Cambridge, who sit sixth in the table.

Benjamin Howard found the back of the net 13 times for Nottingham as they got their season off to a successful start with a win against Titans. The East Midlands side held a 17-11 lead going into the half-time interval, adding 14 goals in the second half to Titan's nine. Adam Latter and Shayn Gowreesunkur both scored four goals forn Titans. Titans are fifth in the table and, like Eagles and Cambridge are without a win after their first two matches.
