The hosts gained a decisive advantage thanks to Kosmina’s serve, when they increased the lead from 15:13 to 19:13. Timotej Gal Kos scored the last point with an ace. Also in the second set, the Kamnik team continued to play very well especially in attack, with Kosmina who put down the ball of 17:10.
