Qatar’s Al Arabi SC ended with runners-up honours after going down fighting to Saudi Arabia’s Khaleej Club in a gripping final of the Asian Men’s Club League Handball Championship, which stretched to second extra time at the Sheikh Saad Al Abdullah Al Salim Al Sabah Complex in the Sabah Al Salem city in Kuwait, on Monday. Khaleej Club earned a slender lead in the first half (14-13) before Al Arabi fought back and leveled at 27-all when the referee blew the full-time whistle. At the end of the first extra time, the scores read 30-all. However, the Saudi club scored five more goals in the second extra-time while Al Arabi could add only three to their total as Khaleej Club clinched the Asian title with a scoreline of 35-33.
