Vojvodina to face off against Telekom Veszprem in SEHA quarter-finals
Vojvodina have with another win over their biggest domestic rivals Metaloplastika Sabac qualified for SEHA – Gazprom League Play-Off quarter-finals where they will play Telekom Veszprem. After 25:24 away win in Sabac last week, coach Boris Rojevic and his guys were once again, in a narrow match, better than Metaloplastika, this time with 26:24.
Metaloplastika’s right back Milan Milic delivered yet another strong shooting performance for his team while their goalkeeper Milan Bomastar played a big role in his team’s lead throughout the biggest part of the first half as well as at the half-time break (11:12).
Vojvodina’s defense was once again on a different level in the second half led by goalie Luka Arsenic who grabbed a few very important saves. Key goal was a little less than a minute and a half before the final whistle scored by Milos Grozdanic. League’s top scorer from last season netted his fifth for a two-goal advantage (25:23) and there was simply no time for guests to turn things around.
Metaloplastika’s coach Veselin Vukovic was hoping for a miracle calling a time-out but his guys committed a turnover in the next attack basically sealing the deal on the decision who gets through towards quarter-final matchup against Hungarians.
Grozdanic and Milic led their respective teams offensively in this one scoring five goals each.
