PGE Skra Bełchatów prevailed in the Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship classic against titleholders Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, valid for Round 19 of the 2019/20 regular season.

 

The PlusLiga classic in Bełchatów attracted nearly 3,000 spectators at the Hala Energia with tickets being sold out two weeks ago! The match had everything the fans expected - spectacular actions, twists and turns, and ultimately five sets that came after Skra’s lead of 2-0. These two sides met 52 times in PlusLiga prior to today’s encounter.

The Bełchatów team won 29 times and ZAKSA 23 times. Skra couldn’t count on a starting outside hitter Artur Szalpuk. On the other hand, ZAKSA finally had Piotr Łukasik and Łukasz Kaczmarek at the disposal. With 19 points (88.2% attack, 15/17), Jakub Kochanowski led six players of Skra with double digits in scoring. Karol Kłos made 5 kill blocks. Aleksander Śliwka put down 24 points for the losing side.

The result of the classic didn’t cause a reshuffle in the standings. Because of a surprising defeat yesterday, VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa didn’t manage to further isolate at the top, ZAKSA are second, Skra are third. However, due to a shocking loss of the fourth-placed Jastrzębski Węgiel against Aluron Virtu CMC Zawiercie (3-2), the gap between the top three teams and the rest of the league has increased.

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
