POL M: Stocznia Szczecin – Trefl Gdansk clash interrupted! Reason – lighting failure

749 0

The Polish media call this an organizational scandal. Two teams couldn’t continue a game and since the organizers couldn’t fix the failure, they went home.


It supposed to be an amazing volleyball show. In front of 5,000 fans, the world champions Bartosz Kurek and Piotr Nowakowski, as well as the Bulgarian star Matey Kaziyski should fight for the first win in Plusliga, but…

At the result 5-5, an unexpected situation happened when the lights inside the hall went out. One of the reasons is that the fans smoked cigarettes in the toilet and activated the fire system.

The hosts were trying to fix it for almost three hours, but they didn’t manage to do it.

The failure turned out to be serious. We will inform you about it and we will compensate the fans for what happened today,” report Stocznia Szczecin

The new date of the continuation of the game is unknown.

In the second match of the day, GKS Katowice defeated AZS Olsztyn 3-1 (25-23, 25-17, 23-25, 25-23). Karol Butryn was the top scorer with 20 points, while Jan Hadrava had 15 on the other side.

Recall that Zawiercie caused the major upset, beating Resovia yesterday.

TUR W: VakıfBank picking outside hitter for next season – Bosetti or Balkestein-Grothues?

Outside hitter? What about Zhu Ting and Kelsey Robinson? It would be crazy if they are leaving. Grothues is older and short. Robinson is a great, hardworking all around outside hitter and one of the best defender on the back court. Is Isabelle Haak a done deal at the opposite position? Reply
