Igor Chupryna: "We’ve reached our goal"


Tatran Presov vs Vojvodina 22:27 (11:15)

(Sotic 7 goals and 2 assists, Kovacevic 6 goals / Rabek 6 goals, Chupryna 12 saves)

Slavko Goluza, Tatran Presov coach:

Today we've seen the perfect example of the saying that every match is a different story. We've expected their 5-1 defense but made way too many mistakes which they used to score easy counter-attack goals. First half was not good. Every time we're out there we have to give our best. I feel like this might turn out to be a useful experience for us with our national finals approaching.

Igor Chupryna, Tatran Presov goalkeeper:

We’ve reached our goal and qualified for the next stage. Thing didn’t work well today – we’ve conceded way too many easy goals and our attack was far from good. Vojvodina displayed a good, quick-paced performance here today. There are not excuses, every game is a different story and we have to be fully focused no matter the goal difference.

Dragan Kukic, Vojvodina assistant coach:

I have to congratulate my guys on their performance here today. We’ve reacted really well despite of the ugly loss yesterday pushing them from the very first minute. Deserved win for us today. Best of luck to Tatran in the quarter-finals. 

Strahinja Stankovic, Vojvodina player:

We’ve showed a lot of character her today responding really well after the defeat yesterday. Goal today was to deliver a good performance without those bad periods we’ve had in the first leg and I feel like this turned out to be a really good experience for our younger guys.
