Carried with huge support from the stands, Asseco Resovia has reached +4 already at the start of the first set. It was 9:5 for the home team, but Skra reacted quickly and tied the score at 11:11.

We could write a separate report only for the second set. Because it was simply unbelievable! The second set of the Resovia – Skra derby lasted 46 minutes! 46!!! Home team gained the opening lead thanks to some brilliant spikes of Marko Ivović – 8-3. Resovia kept the distance all the way until 23:20. But then – 4 consecutive points for Skra! Away team had the first set ball at 24:23!
But read this now – Skra failed to use 4 set balls in a row, then Resovia missed 2 in a row, then Skra missed 2 in a row, then Resovia missed 3 in a row, then Skra missed 1… Altoghether, we had 7 missed set points by Skra and 5 by Resovia… Then it happened. At the score 35:35, Ferdinand Tillie made double contact with the ball. He protested, received a yellow card, but the point went to Resovia. And, home side used their 6th set point! Piotr Nowakovski made the big point – 37:35! All tied at 1-1 in sets!
It was time for the third set… and for another thriller! Resovia had the right momentum after winning the previous battle and used it to escape to 20:14. It seemed that the home team will just perform a routine finishing, however Skra managed to return to this match. With a 7:1 run, away team tied the score at 21:21! Nicolas Marechal touched the top of the net in the next play and gave a new lead for Resovia, Karol Klos equalised on 22:22… But, Skra has never managed to perform a total turnaround.

Resovia was in the lead 2-1 in sets!
Home team was just unstoppable after that. Asseco Resovia was up ahead 8:5 at the first TTO in the fourth set, while at the second TTO it was already 16:9. There was no coming back for Skra this time. Nikolay Penchev made the final blow and ended the set at 25:15. 3-1 for Resovia!
