At home the team defeated BC Rilski Sportist 74-72 which means that everything will be decided in Samokov next Wednesday, 29th of April. The visitors led for most of the game but the home side had the chance to take a good lead after turning the score in the last quarter. However Rilski cut its deficit and left the overall tie wide open.

Both teams started the game well and scored a lot of points. At one point Rilski managed to take the lead and even managed to build some advantage.

The lead went to double digits and Sigal cut it after 8-0 run that was stopped by Darin Ivanov triple. Then the visitors stayed in front and at the break led by 5 points after Bojan Trajkovski scored a three-pointer with few seconds to go.

Shortly after the start of the second half the hosts tied the score but Rilski answered and kept leading. Later Sigal once again tied but still the visitors managed to have 1-point lead after 30 minutes.

The home side started very well the last quarter and scored the first 9 points in it to take the lead. Rakocevic scored after 3.30 minutes played for the visitors  but then Bavcic responded with a triple.
