PGE Skra Bełchatów beat VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa by a 3-1 (25-23, 21-25, 25-22, 25-20) in the big match that closed the seventh round of the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


There are no more undefeated teams in the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season. Warszawa lost their first match this season after making a seven-game winning streak. Skra was the team that stood on their way mostly thanks to Mariusz Wlazły (19 points) and Robert Milczarek (70.6% reception, 17 digs, 41.2 perfect). Bartosz Kwolek scored 14 points for the team from the Polish capital who gave away the top spot in the charts to Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

ZAKSA had to work hard to record their seventh win in the competition. Despite playing without two starters due to injuries, Zbigniew Bartman and Marcin Możdżonek, and having won only two games prior to today, Asseco Resovia Rzeszów resisted champions for five sets. This was the 74 mutual encounter of the two sides, which makes this duel a true classic of the Polish volleyball. With this win, ZAKSA reduces the gap to only two wins (38-36). Aleksander Śliwka and Łukasz Kaczmarek tallied 14 points apiece for ZAKSA, while Łukasz Wiśniewski made 85.8% Attack (12/14). Canadian Nicholas Hoag put down 23 points for Resovia.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
