Zbog bolesti i ozljeda je u rosteru Triglava za unaprijed igranu utakmicu 6.kola WABA Superlige 2021/22 bilo samo pet igračica, ali je svejedno Montani 2003 pružio žestok otpor (82-87).
Iako je Nika Horvat u već 18.minuti zaradila četvrtu osobnu pogrešku (utakmicu je odigrala do kraja), su Kranjčanke u posljednje dvije minute ušle sa smo tri poena zaostatka i napadom. Bugarke su se obranile, a zatim je Dimana Georgieva sa dva vezana koša spriječila senzaciju i Montani 2003 i toretski osigurala Final-Four WABA lige 2021/22.

Gašper Sluga, trener Triglava: »Čestitke nasprotniku za zmago in še enkrat pohvale mojim igralkam za prikazano.«
Manuel Markov, coach of Montana 2003: “We achieved two victories that cost us a lot of efforts. Triglav are a good and well-organized team with a very good coach. In both matches, they made it extremely difficult for us and especially in the second they were very close to success even though they had such a short roster. I congratulate them for the will they have shown and I hope Alina Kvargic’s injury is not serious. We played without two main players and the other girls had to compensate. Hristina Ivanova is a very important part of the team and we definitely missed her but there are much more important things in life than a victory or a ranking. She was where she needed to be. Of course, I am happy for reaching the final four. This year the league is quite contested. I want to show the best we can in the final phase. I take this opportunity to thank everyone in Kragujevac for their help in playing these two games.”
