Vasiliy Karasev: “It was really great to play in front of our supporters”
Zenit’s head trainer, Vasily Karasev, commented on the result with VEF after their game.
— We did a really good job of prepping to the game, really analyzed our opponent. Of course, it was really great and a lot easier to play in front of our fans. I think that when we played them away that’s one of the reasons we didn’t come out with a win. The third quarter was really key for us, in seven minutes we only gave up a single pint and we really played well on defense and also moved on the attacks well too.
At the end of the match we were a little bit tired and VEF didn’t have anything to lose so they tried to come out and play hard in the final quarter, but we hung on for the win.
