Hosts Bekescsabai suffer setback

BVK Bratislava to the seventh spot of the current standing on four points. Bekescsabai gave away the chance to draw level with the currently championship leaders and titleholders Calcit Ljubljana. Slovakia's national champs have not dropped a point in the four matches they have contested so far.
The women's competition will continue on Tuesday night in Bekescsaba with the clash between 1. BVK Bratislava and VK UP Olomouc of Czech Republic.
