Dunav Ruse head coach Georgi Bojkov
"I have told to my team that if we force the team from Vologda to score under 65 points we can win the game. We've played good defence. We had many good opportunities to shoot for three points, but we didn't make it. We were equal with Chevakata for most of the time, we were in front, but we stumbled in the last quarter. The offence is what decided the game at the end."
Chevakata Vologda head coach Dmitry Donskov
"We knew it won't be easy for us. The Bulgarian team plays very good in front of its fans in Ruse. We had problems just before the game. Angelisha Goodrich got injured in our warm up training this morning. Snezana Aleksic was forced to play all the game. We were behind by 10 point and managed to win at the end. We didn't have our best first quarter and couldn't do anything to stop Jaklin Zlatanova especially in the first quarter. But then we concetrated on our defence and started to play with more simple passes. The individual qualities of the players is what made the differenvce at the end. It was a really good game. I want to thank everybody in Ruse for their hospitality, I wish the best of success to Dunav 8806 and I expect to meat them again next year in the competiton."
