In the last game of the Helios Alpe Adria Cup SLUNETA welcomes the team from Domzale. In this both teams already knew about their destiny in the group, SLUNETA had no change to make it to the play-offs, on the other hand Domzale already knew, that they have nothing to loose, because they would make it to the play-off even in the case of lost.
And players obviously knew it, because defence was no topic in this game. And because the opponent came to Ústí with some younger players, the experience was on Czech side. So their players took over the game and were quickly ahead. The visitors couldn´t keep up with our tempo and the game was decided very soon.
Pištěcký: (coach SLUNETA): „We are happy we could say good bye to the HAAC with a win, opponent came withnout some players and the coach gave opportunity to some young players. But still, it wasn´t an easy game, because our opponent had nothing to loose and could play with a clean head. But our bigger rotation and good procentage of shooting were the key to our success.“
Šmíd: (player SLUNETA): „Very good experience, we are glad, that we managed to win and could give some more minutes to players who normály don´t play that much and even thou could give so many points.“
