Slovenia – team

The match with Romania did not start that well for the home heroines of Slovenia (pictured) who were trailing by four points at the first technical time-out of the first set. However, after scoring six points in a row, Slovenia flipped the charts around and eventually seized that section with the score of 25-21.

With Maja Mihelj standing behind the serving line for 11 consecutive rallies, Slovenia broke away after the first mandatory stop and pocketed set 2 with the massive score of 25-9.

Things did not change much also in the third set even though Romania attempted what would have been a late comeback. Slovenia eventually sealed the final 3:0 (25-21) thereby showing its intention to finish atop of the charts in the group to qualify for the final round of the Championship that will be co-hosted by Serbia and Montenegro in March.    

To round out the program of the first day in Nova Gorica, Bulgaria cruised to a 3:0 win (25-20, 25-18, and 25-11) over Slovakia to confirm its credentials as one of the pre-favorites for the top positions in this Pool.
