Primorje has claimed the first Regional league title this Friday thanks to a 15-9 win in the Final Four final over fellow Croatian rivals Jug at home in Rijeka. After two straight Adriatic league championships the reigning Croatian champions continued to dominate the region with now adding the title of the Adriatic league successor, the Regional league where Serbian teams were included in the former Adriatic league competition. The win on Friday however did not came easy. In fact, the home team had to overcome a sloppy 0-2 start to the game where Jug came out firing grabbing an early 1-4 lead in the second period and still led 3-5 at half-time. Things turned around completely though in the second half. Here Primorje took the initiative, grabbed the lead in the third period and more or less dominated the final quarter to post a comfortable 6-goal victory. Centre-forward Cosmin Radu, regular season top scorer Sandro Sukno and Spanish lefty Xavi Garcia led the Primorje scorers with 3 each. Former Primorje player Paulo Obradovic led all scorers with 4.
