Read the full game report.

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. The point for point game continued all the way until 17:17 when Dawid Dryja made a mistake and Skra took the very first lead in this game – 18:17. The next point was the crucial in this set, as Srećko Lisinac brought a two-point lead for the away team – 19:17. Skra kept it until the end! 20:18, 21:19, 22:20, 23:21, 24:22, and finally Facundo Conte scored the last point – 25:23! 1-0 for Belchatow crew!

We could write a separate report only for the second set. Because it was simply unbelievable! The second set of the ResoviaSkra 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. Piotr Nowakowski has put Resovia in front again – 23:22, while then Dawid Dryja blocked Andzej Wrona for 24:22! Finally, Nikolay Penchev converted the second set ball into point – 25:23. 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!
