Rubene was crowned double champion in Latvia after winning also the Men’s ELVI Floorball League Final Four title during the weekend. Rubene had already earlier secured the Women’s championship title.
The Latvian Men’s ELVI Floorball League Final Four took place in Valmiera on 19th and 20th of June.
In the dramatic semi-finals Talsu NSS/Krauzers beat top seeded Lekrings (5-4), but Rubene needed the overtime to beat the defending champion Lielvārde/FatPipe (3-2 OT).
In the bronze match Lekrings secured bronze medals with a convincing 8-4 win over Lielvārde/FatPipe.
Rubene and Talsu NSS/Krauzers met in the final and in a low scoring game (3-2) and team Rubene, who only finished sixth in the regular season, once again claimed the Latvian Champions title. Rubene now holds both champion titles – the Men’s and Women’s. It’s only second time in history it has happened as Rubene also did this in 2005.
