In very balanced duel that took place in the D. Vikelas hall between Maccabi Dimona

and Pylaia, the latter built a slender lead almost from the beginning of the game and

hold firm until the end to win 24-21. The result means Palaia will play for ninth place

against PAOK.




Shlomi Tubul (Coach – Maccabi Dimona): “We didn’t start well, but we managed to

come back. Right before the end of the first half the referees made a few errors

which decided the final outcome, especially the unjust red card they showed to one

of my players. I hope we will win our next game and finish eleventh, but all depends

on if the referees will be fair and just.”

Kiriakos Lappas (Coach – Pylaia): “We were a little bit more focused than our

opponents who are of the same calibre like us. There were moments we lost our

concentration, but at least the kids enjoyed the game. I would like to play with

anyone else but our neighbours PAOK in our final game, but what can we do?”
