Budvanska Rivijera caught a good start and played really well showing a good block defense system, with Vojin Cacic standing out in offense and heavily helping claim the opening set (25-21). However, things turned around in the second set where the Czechs imposed their own game (22-25) before BUDVA got back on track in set 3, after a slow start had opened the way for an 8:10 in favor of Jihostroj. Budvanska Rivijera cruised to the front at 14:12 and eventually showed great composure in a dramatic final rush where the “orange” guys were much helped by Milan Markovic (25-23). Still the hosts lost focus and quality in set 4 being able to score only 13 points there and hence a tie-break was called. There BUDVA played with glowing hearts and eventually could leave the court celebrating a happy end (15-7).
