ZAKSAKędzierzyn-Koźle knows what will happen if she loses in Jastrzębie-Zdrój on Sunday. Even in the middle of the season, he seems to be the best team in Poland this season, and his goal may be two (or even three) trophies. However, one might suspect that it is the UEFA Champions League, not the Polish champions.
Then ZAKSA advanced to the LM finals under unusual circumstances, but the situation of her fighting for PlusLiga’s victory became complicated. Before the second semi-final against PGE Skra Bełchatów, Paweł Zatorski withdrew from the competition due to an injury. After experiencing many problems, ZAKSA entered the final, but lost the first game there. From that moment on, the players of Kędzierzyn-Koźle may no longer be regarded as giants with such an outstanding season and success, which is what Polish clubs have dreamed of for many years. They became a team, a team worth defeating, and Jastrzębski Węgiel realized that he had won three sets of championships since the second Polish championship in history.
In the first set of Jastrzębie’s game, many things happened, similar to Wednesday in Kędzierzyn. Jastrzębski did not end the offense, Mohamed Al Hachdadi performed poorly, and the statistics of Zaksa’s offensive effectiveness did not reflect the offense. But there must be two factors that make them jump a little bit compared to their competitors. They held more than 70% of the parties, but Jastrzębski’s drama ran into a lot of trouble. Nikola Grbic’s players won their first game in 22 games, although after Al Hachdadi’s switch to Jakub Bucki, The two teams looked more equal in the next game.
And this has been confirmed in the second batch. It was Bucki who made the difference. His series of wonderful performances from 19:17 to 23:17 meant that ZAKSA could not return to the game in this game and lost to 19:25. He became a big clown on the Gardini deck, although, surprisingly, Bucky was not very effective on offense. He completed the key ball and made a good impression, but usually he can’t push the ball into the net, and his offense on the defensive end can easily conquer the curled player. Therefore, Lukas Kampa spoke highly of this result. The hawkish organizer saw Bucky’s problem and was able to replace the wings and keep the host’s left attack at a good level. Łukasz Szymura and Tomasz Fornal did “black jobs” here, and they also need to distinguish.
And Zaksa (ZAKSA)? She ran into a problem where Jastrzębski Coal shined. The key moment error was committed by Kamil Semeniuk, and Benjamin Toniutti did not show all the balls perfectly. Łukasz Kaczmarek’s offense and play style were originally optimistic, but he was unable to bring the whole team to him. The second key element that usually determines the result is the block. Nikola Gribic (Nikola Grbić) made his players keenly aware that in addition to the decreasing risk of serving, he does not like to pass the ball to the opponent, more specifically, in the opponent’s attack Do not block the ball by his side. In many cases, the opponent’s attack escaped after the car was blocked.
Although the moment when ZAKSA could regain control of the game was clearly visible in the third game, there was no difference in the third set. At 24:24, Łukasz Kaczmarek performed well and shot Jakub Popiwczak. The Kędzierzyn attack on the residents enjoyed such an important significance and tried to bring the rest of the team to an end. But at that moment, Andrea Gardini asked for time, and ZAKSA was defeated. Kaczmarek took part in the competition, Jastrzębski won two more times, and the competition was over. 27:25 For the hosts who are only one step away from the historic but still very exciting victory in the entire PlusLiga final. ZAKSA hit a wall, but she can stick to the fact that even large volleyball companies like Zenit Kazan and Cucine Lube Civitanova will not interrupt her spirit. Although her players have admitted before, there is a way to keep her. “good game”. It is the achievement of the Jastrzębski Węgiel team.
ZAKSA can believe that she will maintain the advantage she created at the beginning of the fourth game. Her performance was more solid than previous games, even leading by 4 points (15:11). In the second half of the game, he took the lead for the first time at 18:17, and not long after, Yuri Gladyr (Yuri Gladyr) took the lead at 20:18. Jastrzębski did not stop advancing. Zaksy returned at 20:20 with a slight injury to Lukas Kampa. The latter first kicked Lim and then left the court without the first ball to break the Polish title.
Kamil Semeniuk takes the post, Yacine Louati accepts, Eemi Tervaportti enters the game, Yuri Gladyr completes the game And compete for the gold medal there. Jastrzębski Węgiel won 25:23, 3:1 and 2:0. He repeated the biggest achievement in club history-the only gold medal won in 2004.
From a seasonal perspective, who can expect it? There may be no one. But the final showed that Jastrzębie-bians should be regarded as a great Polish volleyball club, even if their achievements are smaller than other clubs. Defeating such a powerful Zaksa in such a difficult season? The coach who has only worked here since January? Fans will never forget this.
