Slovenian goalball team Karantanija is the winner of the first Middle European Goalball League (MEGL).
Match day 4 and the play-offs for the MEGL took place last weekend in Pecs in Hungary, with two teams each from Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary competing.
Karantanija defeated Hungary 1 by eight goals to two to reach the final, while Hungary 2 beat Storm Clouds (Slovenia) by the narowest of margins (7-6) in the other semi-final.
There was only one team in the running in the final though, and Karantanija ran out easy winners by 10 goals to nil.
Hungary 1 salvaged some local pride by beating Storm Clouds 5-2 in the 3rd-4th place play-off. Croatia came fifth and Zagreb finished sixth.
Karantanija finished the MEGL on 36 points following nine wins and three losses throughout the event. Hungary 2 won 10 and lost 5 to finish on 30 points.
