The leaders Zaksa Kędzierzyn-Koźle sensationally succumbed at home to the ninth-placed GKS Katowice in Round 24 of the Polish men’s volleyball championship Plus Liga 2017/2018.



Despite the fact they secured a playoff berth earlier, Zaksa still have an important goal in the regular season ahead – to claim the top-seed. Katowice stood on the way of Zaksa to come very close to achieving this, beating them on the road in Round 24 by a 3-1 (25-20, 25-19, 24-26, 25-23). The Argentinean Gonzalo Quiroga topped Katowice with 19 points (3 aces), while Ukrainian Serhiy Kapelus added 4 kill blocks. The Puerto Rican Maurice Torres scored 20 points for Zaksa.

No.13 Aluron Virtu Warta Zawiercie made a huge step toward avoiding relegation. They defeated Łuczniczka Bydgoszcz in straight sets to break their six-game losing streak and make a 13-point gap compared to No.15 BBTS Bielsko-Biała, who are in the relegation zone along with the 16th-placed Dafi Społem Kielce. Grzegorz Bociek delivered 18 points (3 aces, 2 kill blocks) for Aluron Virtu, while American David Smith made 88% attack (14/16, one error). Bartosz Filipiak scored 19 points for Łuczniczka.

There are six more rounds until the end of the regular season.
