We played 3 games, the first one was the most important one, the eternal derby. That was maybe the only game that made us sweat a bit. Zvezda took the lead twice, first to 0:1, then it was 2:4 for them in the half-time. In the third quarter we scored 3 goals (5:4), then in the final one we knocked them out (9:5). Nemanja Nikolić and Vladimir Ljutovac were our best players.
The second game was against Spartak. It was smooth, we won to 8:1. Nikolić was on fire, he scored 4 goals. At the end we clashed with NS Stars, it was a postponed game from the first round. We completed it with 10:3. Ognjen Stoiljković scored 3 goals for us, Marko Brkušanin and Lazar Leštarić both earned 2-2.
We are leading the league table with 24 points, we are in fact going for the championship title. (Vitez is on the second position with 7 points behind us.) The association will decide about the next round(s), as everyone is focusing on the upcoming world championship qualifiers that take part between 22nd and 25th June.
