Four rounds before the end, the question of who will be the champions of Montenegro has been decided as Lovćen's handball players defeated Partizan in the derby of the championship, gaining a three-point advantage and securing the championship cup, reports Vijesti on March 31, 2018.
Only three weeks after losing to the same rival in front of their fans (28:20), this time, the players of Zoran Abramović dominated from the start.
With an excellent defensive game, the players from Cetinje completely stopped brothers Veselin and Nemanja Drakulović, who scored 16 goals in the victory three weeks ago. Djordje Peruničić was also incapable during this game, and with a 6:0 series, Lovćen lead 8:2. Not long after, the home team lead by seven (11:4), and in the second half, it was 16:9.
The players from Tivat lead 20:17 in the 49th minute, but two goals by Vuk Latković and one goal each by Filip Krivokapić and Draško Kaluđerović increased the lead to 24:17, eliminating any worry.
The Duel of Komovi and Jedinstvo is on Sunday from 19:00. An hour earlier, Mornar 7 and Mojkovac will play, whose winner will stay in the league. The losing team will play a match against the second place from the Second League.
