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.

This tournament will be such a waste of time if that new format will be introduced, eliminating the rewards for the teams that worked hard for it like Belgium and Slovenia. Reply

Fans, which volleyball rules you would change if you were in charge?

It's nice to see players serve the ball at 60+mph , but with it comes with awful lot of service errors -- let alone serve error on float serve. Perhaps teams have taken the value of this part of the game very lightly. I think there needs to some sort of penalty for this. Thinking similar to that of basketball whenever a team gets certain amount of service error, there must be a point given to the opposing team. An alternative penalty would be to deduct a point from the team at fault. Reply
