Nataša Derepasko, coach of RK Krim Mercator: “Congratulations to the Kastamonu team for a good fight and a good game. I am glad that we won this match, that we played very well in the first half. However, I am not happy with the last 15 minutes of our defense. We played 45 minutes exactly as we agreed – disciplined in both defense and attack, and I think that’s the reason for such a result. “

Katarina Krpež Šlezak, handball player of RK Krim Mercator: “It is not easy to play against Kastamonu. I’m happy for my show today, and even more with fact that the rest of the team played for me. We played as one and great from the very start. Our concentration has dropped a bit in the last 15 minutes, but the most important thing is the victory. We have to forget about today’s match and immediately focus on the last three matches, which will be very important for us. We must be aware that it will be difficult and it will be necessary to fight to the end. “
