List of injured Kielce players increased to 4 as Uroš Zorman joined Aginagalde, Buntić and Rosiński. Still, Polish Champions were considered favourites.Bronze medalists of the last season began quite well – they kept being one step ahead of the hosts for almost 10 minutes. In the 11. minute Karol Bielecki gave his team their first lead (7:6) after scoring a penalty shot. Górnik tried to keep pace with them but two fastbreakes of Reichmann and Jachlewski increased the gap to 3 goals (10:7). Coach Liljestrand immediately called time-out and it helped Górnik for a moment (10:9, 16. minute). However, slowly but surely, Kielce started regaining their advantage and finished the first part leading 19:14.Not much changed in the second half; 15 minutes from full-time Kielce reached 10-goal-lead (33:23) and both teams loosen up a bit. The audience in Kielce saw many fast goals, both teams didn’t really stay strong in defence.Even though the game wasn’t harsh, the referees were quite eager to punish players with 2-minute suspensions: Kielce players were sent off the court 5 times, and Zabrze players 7 times.Top scorer for Kielce: Karol Bielecki (10 goals); for Zabrze: Robert Orzechowski (6 goals).MARTYNA USNARSKA read more
