ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle beat ONICO Warszawa by a 3-2 (25-23, 25-21, 20-25, 27-29, 17-15) in Game 1 of the 2018/19 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship.


The top seed ZAKSA took a 1-0 lead against the No.2 seed ONICO in the best-of-five series of the Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff finals.

The two teams have met several times this season, with ZAKSA having a better score overall. Game 1 of the finals had several twists and turns and the biggest one came in the fourth set in which ONICO had a 15-7 lead but fought hard to win the set as the MVP of the match Mateusz Bieniek started to break the defense of the side from the Polish capital.

Łukasz Kaczmarek top-scored for ZAKSA with 19 points. Mateusz Bieniek made 79% perfect attack (11/14, blocked once). Maciej Muzaj, who strengthened ONICO just before the playoff semifinals as a medical joker, scored game-high 24 points, including five kill blocks. Andrzej Wrona set up six kill blocks for the losing side who finished the match with the team’s blocking effort of as much as 17 kill blocks.

Plus Liga 2018/2019 playoff finals – Game 1:

(1) ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle – (2) ONICO Warszawa 3-2 (25-23, 25-21, 20-25, 27-29, 17-15), series 1-0

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

Organisation of OG Qualification in Poland reminds me WCh2014 as far as a timetable, referees.. It is enough to compare all schedules of home NT with other qualification groups.. Poland NT is probably currently the strongest NT in men volleyball in the world, and it does not need any such a trick... Of course, it indicates also the role of FIVB, which is orientated mainly on a profit... Reply

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

um...did he protest as loudly during Italian tournaments in the past? really, if Poland was playing this tournament in France, we would have as unreasonable schedule as they had and, we too, would complain, but what does it matter? FIVB accepted the schedule, so Ngapeth can only blame his own federation for not fighting for this tournament's organization rights more. Reply
