HC Alkaloid had a promising start in front of their home crowd, keeping pace with the opponent. The first fifteen minutes saw both teams exchanging goals in a dynamic and efficient game. The score was tied at 7-7, but a series of errors by our team allowed the Bitola rivals to pull ahead, leading 7-11 with four consecutive goals.

Pelister maintained the four-goal lead until halftime (12-16). HC Alkaloid demonstrated a more dynamic approach at the start of the second half, bouncing back from the setback and narrowing the gap to two goals (17-19). However, a shot hitting the post and a save by the opposing goalkeeper Lesjak allowed the visiting team to regain a two-goal advantage (18-20), returning to the lead they held earlier (18-22).

In the final fifteen minutes of the match, the rivals from Bitola maintained their lead at the Avtokomanda arena and secured the points despite our team’s efforts to stage a comeback. In the upcoming round, HC Alkaloid will host another home match, this time against HC Prolet 62.
