Ninth round of the Cadet National Championship ends: Celje extends unbeaten streak and threatens Olimpija
If Celje in the U15 league is not going as planned, the story is different in the Cadet Championship. Celje is unbeaten in the U-17 category after seven games, with four wins and three draws, scoring 22 goals and conceding only six. It’s true that the young Celjans are third in the standings, but behind the leader Olimpija, which has two games more, is five points behind. So if the Celje team had won both games, they would be leading the standings.
Celje played Mura at home on Sunday and suffered their third defeat of the season. In front of around 100 spectators at the Olimp Arena, it ended 3-1 to the hosts, who found themselves trailing, but did not let it get them off the track. Mura took the lead in 18th minute Samo Sečkar scored, the second goal of the match was also scored by a Black-White player. But what if Val Bislimaj in 36th sends the ball into his own net…
Celje secured the win in the second half, when Žiga Krajnc and Alban Veselaj scored. He scored first in 64th minute, the second in 81st minutes.
