HPK win the fifth and decisive game as guests 3-2 (25-23, 19-25, 17-25, 25-11, 15-12).

Final series was incredibly tough as the last three games were finished with the victories of visitors. There is another illustration of this toughness – only three points separate the two teams at the end (498-495)!

How huge venture of HPK is proves the fact that Viesti took 38 home games in playoff until suffering defeat in the last two.

The American from HPK, Keao Burdine, stands out in Game 5 with 25 points. On the other side, Pauliina Vilponen scores 20.
