MEVZA: OK Maribor celebrate first win this season by beating Waldviertel in straight sets
On Saturday night, last season’s bronze-medallists Union Raiffeisen Waldviertel from Austria lost their first MEVZA League match after an about seven months break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. They suffered a defeat in straight sets (19:25, 23:25, 23:25) vs. OK Merkur Maribor on home court.
As a result, the team from Slovenia moved up to second place in the current standing on four points. Maribor’s Rok Mozic was the player of the match with 22 points.
The 2021 MEVZA League features seven elite teams representing three countries. Alongside ACH Volley LJUBLJANA (SLO), OK Merkur MARIBOR (SLO), Calcit Volley KAMNIK (SLO) and UVC Holding GRAZ (AUT), SK Zadruga AICH/DOB (AUT), Union Raiffeisen WALDVIERTEL (AUT) and HAOK Mladost ZAGREB (CRO) are competing in a double round robin format.
