2 min read

On Saturday evening, Slovenian cup winners OK Calcit Kamnik defeated OK Merkur Maribor in Slovenian derby, but also the opening round of the MEVZA League 2022/2021.
The hosts emerged victorious in four thrilling sets (32:34, 25:18, 26:24, 25:23). Maribor’s Ahmed Ikhbayri was the man of the match with 29 points, while Jan Klobucar made 22 on the other side of the net.

Matija Plesko, head coach of Calcit Kamnik: “Tonight we had a lot of problems in attacking, especially because the reception was not the most ideal. Besides that, Mitja Gasparini was not able not play. However, this is no excuse for the defeat. I am very glad that there were spectators back in the stands again after a long time. I think, we were too predictable in some decisive situations. We tried to stop an excellent Ahmed Ikhbayri, but unfortunately we were not successful.

Sebastijan Skorc, head coach of Merkur Maribor: “Overall, we delivered a very good performance, this applies to all players. We played very well in defense, but it is true that Calcit Volley suffered the absence of Mitja Gasparini. Regardless of that, we are happy with the first three points and we are aware that this is just the beginning of the season.
