To sum up the week, here’s the best of this week…

The last week 3 point collectors, Izvidjac Central Osiguranje, have not  managed to prolonged the winning streak after the last week having some of the best moments of their season so far. The obstacle on the way were Meshkov Brest who had one single goal coming from the far Belarus – and that is to win. The guests celebrated with 26:34 keeping the Bosnian-Herzegovinian boys at the bottom of the table.

In the city derby of the season, Vardar reached yet another winning stroke solidifying the first position on the table. However, Metalurg were this time able to keep pace with the champion of Macedonia, leaving the court with surprising 15:15 at the halftime. Still, Raul Gonzalez’s boys were in control of the match for the rest of the 30 minutes, taking over the 3 points away from their city fellows, Metalurg with a win of 31:29.

The biggest part of the excitement was left for the end of the night when PPD Zagreb hosted Celje Pivovarna Lasko. In a narrow match, with the lead navigating from one side of the court to another for the whole 60 minutes, the guests were the ones able to turn the first half of the match in their favor. However, the evenness prolonged to the second half getting the crowd to their feet. The match was decided in the last seconds with Stipe Mandalinic beating the buzzer and sealing the win for PPD Zagreb with the final 28:27.
