Jastrzębski Węgiel eliminated reigning champions PGE Skra Bełchatów from the 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoffs!

 

The third seed Jastrzębski completely changed the course to Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoffs by eliminating reigning champions, and also No.6, Skra.

The poor regular season campaign cost the Bełchatów team to be seeded very low in the quarterfinal draw and, accordingly, to jeopardize their title defense ambitions. Jastrzębski did not miss the opportunity to take advantage of this and kick Skra out of the playoffs for the first time in the history of their matchups in the knockout stage of the Polish Championship. Beating Skra in the last five mutual encounters, including Game 1 of the playoff quarterfinals three days ago (3-2), was definitely a good sign for the side based in Jastrzębie-Zdrój. Game 2 on the road ended into their favor, in straight sets, partially 25-20, 25-15, 25-21.

Dawid Konarski top-scored for Jastrzębski with 13 points while Grzegorz Kosok and German Lukas Kampa made four kill blocks each. Dawid Gunia served four aces. As for Skra, Iranian Milad Ebadipour scored 15 points.

Plus Liga 2018/2019 quarterfinals bracket:

(6) PGE Skra Bełchatów - (3) Jastrzębski Węgiel 0-3 (20-25, 15-25, 21-25), 0-2 series

(5) Cerrad Czarni Radom - (4) Aluron Virtu Warta Zawiercie (G2 on March 31), 0-1 series

(1) ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle and (2) ONICO Warszawa secured automatic berths for the semifinals /ONICO will play Jastrzębski/.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
