Serbia U18s national team opened Youth festival with comfortable 36-2 win over Germany. Although Serbs had started strong, especially defensively, it was obvious that they had to beat their nervs to benefit in attacking actions. Some hosts’ handling errors moved the game on their territory, but cheered by enthusiastic crowd, Junior Eagles prevented Germany to lead.
After an entertaining 10 minutes, Serbia took control over the game and never let it out until the final whistle. Aleksandar PavloviÄ‡ scored the first try of the festival, and Luka KaradÅ¾iÄ‡ doubled the advantage four minutes later. In the 22nd minute Germany scored penalty goal after fine kick from Oliver Seelinger, but couldn’t intercept further tries from their opponents. Miodrag TomiÄ‡ and Lazar MiÄ‡iÄ‡ crossed before halftime, with skipper Slavko MarkoviÄ‡ adding a goal after Uroš RaduloviÄ‡ had missed on three occassions from difficult positions.
The picture was similar in the second half. Germany’s attacks kept structure, with good set completion rate but had no answer for the strong defence. The second half also saw four tries from Serbia, with Lazar MiÄ‡iÄ‡ completing his hat trick, Luka KaradÅ¾iÄ‡ scoring his second and Aleksandar ZdravkoviÄ‡ marking the final score. Slavko MarkoviÄ‡ added another two-pointer.
