In the first final of the Polish championship, ZAKSA defeated Jastrzębski 3-0 and entered Saturday’s competition as the favorite. JW hopes to finally break a losing streak with the Kędzierzynians (6 consecutive losses in all competitions).
The start of the confrontation goes back to the visitors who advanced 4: 1. As time passed, the hosts began to talk, and Jan Hadrava gave the signal to attack. Host Tomas Fornall also added his three year old and Jastrzębie-Zdrój took the lead at 13:10. From that moment on, only Benjamin Toniotti and the company dominated the events of the stadium and were victorious in the opening match 25:20.
After switching sides, the agitated charges of the Gheorghe Cretu immediately got to work in earnest. Kędzierzyn-Koźle consolidated the block and won 9:4. Marcin Janusz played it with ease, and his team was heading confidently for victory in the second set. The local volleyball players seemed helpless and eventually died at the age of 16.
