The Maltese under 23 women’s national handball team started off its campaign in this year’s EHF/IHF Challenge Trophy with a very encouraging result against Israel, thanks to a determined first half performance.  It was a thrilling start for the locals where they played some good handball and managed to keep abreast of their opponents with good aggressiveness in defence and some effective movements in attack to end the first half with just a three goal deficit (8-11).  In the second half, the Maltese girls tried to maintain the momentum going and kept fighting for every ball.  However, the more experienced Israeli team opened a 5 goal margin mid-way through this half and ended up winning the match 22-12.  This was the best result against Isreal so far.
