In the final showdown in the city of Kranj, Calcit made an epic comeback from 0-2 against national champions ACH Ljubljana to defend the Slovenian Cup trophy 18-25, 18-25, 25-17, 25-18, 15-13.

Ljubljana were favorites in the finals for many reasons. They beat Calcit already four times this season not allowing rivals to take a single set in the last three encounters. Also, Calcit had many problems with injured and ill players recently.

Nevertheless, Brazilian opposite Maxson Pereira and receiver Andrej Štembergar-Zupan scored 18 points each for Calcit. A receiver Žiga Štern scored 15 for Ljubljana.

It was the 16th trophy for Branik in the tournament to which they were led by a 21-year-old opposite Iza Mlakar, who highlighted with 35 points! Serbian opposite Olivera Kostić collected 23 for Calcit.
