KV Kastrioti claim Kosovo national cup title after dramatic final
News from the National Federations

Prishtina, Kosovo, April 6, 2018. Two teams from the city of Ferizaj, KV Kastrioti and KV Luboteni, claimed on Thursday the 2018 edition of the national cup of Kosovo.

KV Kastrioti played KV Drita in the women’s final – with KV Drita boasting a record of four consecutive titles in the competition. It was a truly dramatic final where KV Kastrioti, supported by some 1,000 fans, claimed the first set 32-30. KV Drita responded swiftly, as they claimed the second set in emphatic style (25-13). However, KV Kastrioti regrouped to take the third 25-21 before KV Drita came back again in the fourth (26-24) to shape up an all-deciding tiebreak. This lasted for more than 15 points with KV Kastrioti coming out on top at 18-16 to triumph with their third national cup title in history. KV Drita, on the other hand, suffered their first loss this season and will have to focus on the national league Playoffs to restore their supremacy on domestic soil.

The national cup final between KV Kastrioti and KV Drita will go down in history for Kosovar Volleyball as one of the most dramatic, tense and competitive matches ever contested in the Volleyball history of the Balkan country.

KV Luboteni had a much easier run in the men’s final where they beat KV Pëja 3-0 (27-25, 25-22, 25-22), thus taking their revenge for a loss they suffered to that same opponent earlier this season in the national league. The first set was a very close race with KV Luboteni emerging victorious at 27-25. KV Pëja controlled the game in the second set until Luboteni drew level at 17-all and from there onwards, the ‘Wolves’ from Ferizaj were on a class of their own, this resulting in a comprehensive 3-0 victory. Aleksandar Mitev and Habil Ajeti were the best players in this game for the winning side. As a result, KV Luboteni celebrated by taking the first domestic trophy of the season and they will be trying to add the national league to their resume as well.

The Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK) broadcast both matches live, thus providing further exposure to the event nationwide.
