 Žygimantas Sinkevičius, coach of VHC Šviesa, after game comment:
“First of all congratulations to the team with a good victory. We did a really good job in defensive to stop Drevinska and Lapinska. In the attack we also played a disciplined handball, we played according to plan. I don’t want to single out a one player, because we all play as a team, and if we play like that, I think it will be very difficult to stop us. This victory will give us more confidence in our strength.”
