0075 ivanic2017sviThe second tournament of the Croatian championship in Ivanić grad brought us good results. The mens team won their first tournament after 2014., also held in Ivanić Grad, and the girls were second, stopped by Kontesa Nera.

After the Zaprešić quarter-final mishap the men's team desperately needed a good result so they keep the Final 4 hope alive. And that result couldn't be better. On the first day, in the group, we had beaten Minden, Chemo Profili and Sesvete 2 and the only loss came from Detono after a shootout. In the quarter-final we were better than Čakovec and the semi-final was a real thriller. The first set was lost in the last minute, after being in the lead for 9+ minutes. We entered the last minute of the second set with 3 goals behind. We scored and got close to just one goal just to get the possession back with Sesvete beeing taken the ball due to not shooting in a clear chance. In the very last seconds Dumenčić scores the winning goal. In the shootout the hero was the goalkeeper Grahovac saving all three shots. In the final Detono awaited, the team who we hadn't beaten from 2014. In the last three finals our team played (Jarun Kup, Čakovec Open, Ivanić Open) Detono won every time. This time, with excellent defense played by Semren, Smolković and Begonja and offensive nightmare Semren was (18 points in the final), we win the first set 26:20. In the second set we lack concentration and Detono wins 21:16. In the shootout it took only one save from Badžek due to scoring all the shots. The final goal was scored by Bašić.

The girls kept their finals streak going, streak going since 2013., the last year they hadn't played one. This time they were beaten by Kontesa Nera which completely deserved the win. The spotlight in the final match was taken by the two goalkeepers - Budić (KN) and Hajduk (Dubrava-11 saves) which resulted in a very few number of points scored. However, Kontesa Nera had more concentration in the end. Detono placed third and Sesvete fourth.

Before the Final 4 there is just one more tournament, Zagreb Open held on 1st and 2nd of July after the European championship.
