The Ahly handball team beat their Zamalek counterparts, without legend Ahmed El Ahmar, 20-19 in the handball league. 

A strong start from the Ahly team saw them take an early 8-3 lead. However, Zamalek were able to make up the difference before Ahly took a 10-7 lead into halftime.

The second half saw Ahly continue their lead, but Zamalek were able to tie the game at 16-16. Ahly fought back and finished the game with 20-19 win.

Although Zamalek are the current title holders of the Egyptian Handball League, Ahly had won the three previous editions of the competition, making the match a highly contested affair.

In addition to being a football/soccer and basketball enthusiast, I am currently pursuing a combined BS/MD degree at VCU. I also currently work as a Pharmacy Technician in my spare time.
