Jadran Herceg Novi played in a rejuvenated team, due to injury, Obradovic and Duro Radovic were absent, and captain Petkovic and Spaić were resting from a grueling competition system. The Montenegrin team scored at first, but the guests soon turned and led but the sailors equalized and the first period ended without a winner. However, in the second period Herceg Novi added gas and at the half of the game it was already high 9-4. Until the end of the match, the goals of the young Adriatic team were settled and the final result was 16-7.
