Calcit Kamnik Ljubljana are the winners of this year’s edition of the Slovenian Men’s volleyball Cup, taking the trophy in the tournament for the third time.

 

In the final showdown in the city of Kranj, Calcit made an epic comeback from 0-2 against national champions ACH Ljubljana to defend the Slovenian Cup trophy 18-25, 18-25, 25-17, 25-18, 15-13.

Ljubljana were favorites in the finals for many reasons. They beat Calcit already four times this season not allowing rivals to take a single set in the last three encounters. Also, Calcit had many problems with injured and ill players recently.

Nevertheless, Brazilian opposite Maxson Pereira and receiver Andrej Štembergar-Zupan scored 18 points each for Calcit. A receiver Žiga Štern scored 15 for Ljubljana.

 

A day earlier, Nova KBM Branik Maribor won back-to-back trophy in Women’s Cup of Slovenia after prevailing in a marathon final match versus Calcit Kamnik Ljubljana, also in Kranj, 3-2 (25-21, 21-25, 25-23, 27-29, 15-7).

It was the 16th trophy for Branik in the tournament to which they were led by a 21-year-old opposite Iza Mlakar, who highlighted with 35 points! Serbian opposite Olivera Kostić collected 23 for Calcit.
