Celje secure three points in Slovenian derby

Celje PL - Gorenje Velenje

Branko Tamse and his boys managed to reach yet another Slovenian derby win of the season led by amazing Lesjak between the posts celebrating 31:27 against Gorenje Velenje at home in Zlatorog Arena.

Match was close in opening 15 minutes all the way until Gal Marguc scored to open the gap to +4 a bit less than 10 minutes before the half-time whistle which proved to be the key moment of the encounter. After that hosts did not let Gorenje get closer with Borut Mackovsek scoring for 27:19 (+8) about 15 minutes before the end which finally sealed the deal in this one. Until the end Gorenje only managed to make this loss look a bit better and more acceptable with Celje’s defense proving to be the match-deciding factor today.

Jaka Malus and Kristijan Beciri led Celje PL today scoring 6 each. Urban Lesjak had 10 saves while on the other side experienced Alem Toskic and Matjaz Brumen netted 6 each as well.
