Cambridge suffered a last-gasp 27-26 defeat to London GD in the Men’s Super 8 Handball League, Premier Division.

They took control of the opening exchanges to open up a narrow 17-15 half-time lead.

Cambridge’s defence held strong at the start of the second half, and extended their lead to five goals with just 10 minutes remaining.

But London GD rallied to level the match, and in the last few moments, the London club took the lead for the first time with what turned out to to be the winner as they extended their unbeaten run. Jose Ballester Beltran and Florian Strohl top scored for Cambridge with six goals each.
