Krõljas coach Boris Sokolovskiy said that they started poorly but managed to fix their game in the second half but Kalev deserved the victory. When asked about if he is afraid of losing his position as head coach he replied: “Being a head coach you are never protected. But next week they will have a team meeting with the clubs front office who aren’t happy with the loss.”

Alar Varrak said that ofcourse its good to win but he never wants to feel what he felt in the last 5 minutes he also added: ” Maybe we started holding the lead too much, unfortunately both Keedus and Elegar got their fifth foul and that changed our game, opponents got their self confidence and we didnt make any shots at all. I had also used all of our time-outs and it was difficult to stop their rythm. Good that we hold on on our lead and took the win here.”
