In fourth round Podravka Vegeta defeated Krim Mercator in Zagreb 36:27 (21:16).
Match was different from the yesterdays encounter against Lokomotiva. Slovenian team did not have lead during entire match, in fact they eve did not come close.
In first half Podravka played on high „European“ level. After small deconcentration in second half, players from Koprivnica ended the match in impressive way. Zdravko Zovko was very strict and did not allow many errors to his players. After two or three errors player was substituted.
Best performance showed back players Penezić, Tatari and Franić with great shots and many assists. But Krim did not give up. Ex players of Podravka, Stefanišin and Golubić were the reason why Krim came close on 23:21 in 36th minute. Podravka reacted and smashed Krim. Anita Bulath did not play much but scored one of the last goals for celebration of her birthday – from 20th of September she has 25 years, same as Miranda Tatari.
Penezić and Jelčić show
Andrea Penezić and Ivana Jelčić deserved high grades. Jelčić was on goal entire match (Žderić entered only for 7m shots and Ungureanu was in audience because of shoulder injury). Penezić had many great jump shots and without doubt she was best player of the match.
