Belarussian champions Meshkov Brest celebrated expected victory in Novi Sad against home team RK Vojvodina 36:25 (16:14). Zeljko Babic’s outfit ensured the third place at the end of the regular part of the season before the F4 tournament in Veszprem which will be held in the last week of March. The Serbian champions ended the season in the regional league with two wins, four draws and 12 defeats.
RK Vojvodina’s coach Djordje Cirkovic has changed the main roles in his team as many of the most important players stayed on the bench or, like Curkovic and Datukashvili, on the stands, but the level of performance of some youngstars, as Jovanovic and Arsenic helped by little older Orbovic, was more than good.
Vojvodina have been in lead 12:10 after 23 minutes of the match, when much more experienced Meshkov’s squad made turnover with a few good defensive actions and easy goals.
The real demonstration of strength has been seen by Belarussian in the second half. Series 5:1 at the start of the second haf led by Dzianis Rutenka put visitors on +6 – 21:15, what was enough to secure the new triumph in the regional competition.
Home team was in the game until 44th minute when difference was three goals – 20:23, but away squad overtook the control of the match until the very end with the TOP scorer, Dzainis Rutenka (9) in the main role…
