After 10 rounds, the Triglav League finally saw Mladost not getting three points. Šabac won against the Serbian champion Partizan for the third time this season, and Crvena Zvezda loses to Jadran Carine.

Match Reports

Mladost and Jug both started the match with certain fatigue from the European matches, though Jug had a better start as they took the lead with 3:0 in the first eight minutes. Luka Lončar and Xavi Garcia dominated the game until Mladost woke up and Miloš Ćuk scored for the lead (5:4).

In the last quarter, there was only one goal, but it was a crucial one for Jug. Just a minute before the end of the match, Daniil Merkulov stopped Mladost’s streak and took one point in the final standing. Even though we could say that the true MVP was Toni Popadić, who blocked eight shots, leaving Mladost without a goal for almost 10 minutes.

Šabac played Partizan for the third time this season and won with 7:6. This win will mean a lot to the team since the points are transferred to the Serbian Championship. In the first half of the match, both teams played a quick game, while Nikola Radulović and Miloš Korolija carried the score.

The real struggle began in the crucial third quarter in which Velkić equalized the score. Later, toward the end of the match, Dragoljub Rogač elevated his team to 7:5. The last goal came from Partizan’s side, but Petar Smiljević wasn’t enough to get a win, nor pull off a draw.

Jadran Carine executed yet another victory, this time downing Crvena Zvezda with 10:7. By the end of the first halftime, they had double the goals. Since then, they kept the distance and Aleksandar Filipović‘s team stayed behind.

Jadran Split dominated over Primorac since the start, when they scored for 6:1. Everyone knew the outcome, yet Jadran pushed hard to get the final 19:8. Mornar beat POŠK with 13:8, reaching the fifth place on the standings.
