– We start bad, as my team show big respect for Vardar. Our start was nervous and we did not realize some chances, but as match continues we became much better. First play good defense, than show individual player’s qualities. When Vardar start to catch us, we stay calm and keep our lead, said Peter Hatalcik, coach of Tatran.
Dissapointed was RK Vardar’s coach Zoran Kastratovic:
– I mention few days ago about Tatran strength and their good players. Negative trend continue for us on matches versus Tatran. We played good just in first 20 minutes. Than try to change defense zone, but was late to make reversals. Some of my players think that match is over when we lead 7-3. Start to shoot from every positions and situations. It is clear that we’re tired playing almost every three-four days, said Zoran Kastratovic, coach of Vardar.
In next round Vardar travel to Novi Sad, and Tatran will host Lovcen.
