Szolnok has won the 2016 Hungarian cup. The reigning national champion completed a Final Four weekend by beating fellow contender ZF-Eger 4-10 in a clear win in the final on Sunday. One day prior the Sandor Cseh coached squad had already eliminated Honvéd 11-5 to advance.
The win against one of the fellow national title favourite, Eger, was equally convincing. A strong start got Szolnok up 1-5 already before Eger started to come back in the game, which led them to trailing just two goals, at 3-5 and 4-6. But it was all they were allowed as Szolok ran away in the remainder closing out the game by scoring the last four goals, as top scorer Milan Aleksic, Aaron Younger, Zivko Gocic, and again Younger struck.
