Three in a row!

The Krim's winning streak continues! Also after Saturday's match against last year's finalists of the elite EHF Champions League, the handball players of the Hungarian FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria. The atmosphere in Stožice Arena was electrified, the fight on the floor was even harder, and the joy at the end was indescribable. 32:26 for the third win in a row and the second in a row in front of the home fans.

The first half of the first half at the Stožice was evenly matched. Until the 16th minute, when former Tigress Dragana Cvijić was sent off. Daria Dmitrieva gave the handball players in blue jerseys the lead with two consecutive goals and later the ever-cheerful Tamara Mavsar added her own to increase the lead. By the break, the advantage had grown a bit more.

And it didn’t end there. The excellent performance of Dragan Adžić‘s team continued in the second half, flying on the wings of the home fans and scoring … Goal after goal. The crisis of the Hungarian team was getting deeper by the minute, and the joy of the Tigresses after the end was all the sweeter. It ended with 32:26. And a third consecutive European victory!

Daria Dmitrieva was the top scorer with eight goals, while Tamara Mavsar added seven.

The next European match for the Krim family will be on Sunday, 1 October, at 16:00, when the Tigresses will play at Ikast from Denmark. They return to their home floor on Sunday, 21 October (18:00), when the reigning European champions, Vipers Kristiansanda, come to Hala Tivoli. Tickets are available HERE.

Dragan Adžić, head coach of Krim Mercator: »Congratulations to the competitors for a great fight. We, on the other hand, have implemented everything we agreed. Thanks to the players. With this win we confirmed the good performance in both first games. Let’s move forward!«

Maja Vojnovič, goalkeeper of Krim Mercator: »The game was not as easy as it looked. We played very well throughout. My teammates were great defensively, which helped me. They were also outstanding in attack. The game was flowing. I’m happy!«
