Gorenje Velenje - Tatran Presov 27:25 (17:14)
(Medved 9, Cehte 5 / Hrstka 5, Urban 5, Butorac 5)
Slavko Goluza, Tatran Presov coach:
Congrats to Gorenje. We delivered the beat performance we're capable of delivering at the moment. When they were even five or six goals up we refused to give up. Defense was not good in the beginning, we were not aggressive enough and were also committing a lot of mistakes in attack. Regardless of everything I believe fans enjoyed a quality match today.
Janus Lapajne, Tatran Presov player:
Gorenje made the difference in opening 15 minutes. We committed a lot of turnovers later allowing them to open the gap. We refused to surrender until the very end and I'd like to congratulate all my teammates on that.
Zeljko Babic, Gorenje Velenje coach:
Both teams clearly wanted to win this and showed some nice moves. We opened the match well playing really good in defense. I'm obviously satisfied with the win and I'd like to congratulate my boys. I believe we played well in SEHA League this season.
Niko Medved, Gorenje Velenje players:
Good match for us. We really wanted this win in order to boost our self-confidence for what's coming. Neither team gave up prior to the final whistle. This win means a lot to us.
