- How do You rate Your team’s performance in the first stage?
First games this season and performance was bit clumsy. We played one very good game against Valmiera and average game against Rezekne, other three games were below average.
- Against which opponent You had the most difficult game?
Against Rezekne – good even game. It was a lottery, this time luck was on our side.
- Was there anything that Your team can improve in the next stages?
In U-14 category You can improve all the parts of the game
