Great defence of Budućnost
Match started with great defence play of Budućnost. Krim could not break thru impenetrable "wall" Bulatović-Ambroš-Kindl and home team soon took the 6:1 lead. Marta Bon was forced to call time-out but it did not help Slovenians. In 20th minute Stefanišin had three consecutive saves in just one attack of Budućnost. Despite her brilliant performance home team went on 14:9 and concluded first half with the margin of six goals 17:11.
In second half coach Zsiga gave opportunity to less experienced players. Led by superb Sergeja Stefanišin, team of Marta Bon managed to score seven consecutive goals (from 19:13 they came to 19:20). Then Mőrtel had to leave the court because of injury but Stefanišin continued with brilliant performance and Krim even increased the margin. In last minutes of the match Budućnost had opportunity to turnover the result but today Stefanišin was simply brilliant allowing her team to win with 33:31.
Sergeja Stefanišin had 27 saves; Lekić scored seven and Mörtel six goals for Krim.
Best scorer in Budućnost team was Jovanović with nine goals; Radović scored seven goals and Radičević six.

“First of all I want to congratulate to my team-mates. In first half we did not play how we can. In second half we played good in defence with great help from our goalkeeper.

“I have to thank our fans who spent many hours on the road to come here to support us. They supported us even when we were losing the matches so this win is for them. We did not start good but we managed to turnover the result and to win at the end.”
Jovanka Radičević, right wing of Budućnost T-Mobile:
“I congratulate Krim on this victory. We simply did not have luck today. Krim players were much more stabile and concentrated in second half and for us nothing worked.
I have to say that this is our first defeat after five consecutive victories. In second half we missed too many easy goals and lost our concentration. So we are the only ones to be blamed for this defeat. It should not have happened but it's better to loose now then in Champions League. Our priority is match against Elda in first round of CL, next week. I believe in my team and I am convinced that we will learn a lot from this defeat.“
