This is already the 5th final that our club plays in the last 6 years, since it started competing in the 2nd Croatian National League West. On top of that, we were twice winners and got the right to play in the round of 16 of the Croatian Cup.
This year, the team performed much more rejuvenated, as 4 standard players from the first team went to study in other cities, or for work reasons. So our young players had the opportunity, and the possibility to compete with an experienced opponent, who this year has also strengthened with former players of MOK Rijeka.
Led by our experienced player, former international, Ivica Radočaj, who once again helped the youngsters as so many times before, the boys gave an excellent performance and showed a great game in the first two sets, until the end of each, where the experience of the older and more experienced players of OK Mlaka, who closed the sets in their favor. In the first set, there was an even fight until the score of 15:15, and in the second until the score of 19:19. Midway through the third set, the coach decided to give our younger members a chance, otherwise young cadets, who played very well, which makes us particularly happy. Unfortunately, the experience prevailed and in the end a little luck was lacking. But it will certainly come with more games and with work and commitment in training, which we have no doubts about.
This has been a beautiful and valuable experience for them, regardless of the outcome. Guys, keep it up!
Congratulations to the guys and the coach, Luka Burić, who is working hard and doing a great job for now.
