Stal Nysa still without a victory, but with another point

Stal Nysa’s volleyball players still have to wait for the first league victory. The charges of coach Daniel Pliński already lost to GKS Katowice 0: 2, but managed to get up and lead to a tie-break. In it, however, from the very beginning, the events were set by the inhabitants of Katowice and they scored two points. Jakub Jarosz was chosen as the best volleyball player of the match.

After the service Mitchell Stahl Stal players took the first two-point lead. When Moustapha M`Baye he set up a tight block, their advantage increased, but a few actions later Jakub Szymański used a counterattack and the difference narrowed to a point. Both teams played well in attack and the actions usually ended in the first strike. He was especially visible Nikolai Penchev and it was his block-off play that made it 14:11. After the time taken by Grzegorz Słaby, the Bulgarian hit again, and a moment later he added an effective block, thanks to which the hosts had five “points” more. From then on, however, their game stuck and they lost four points on one line-up. It happened mainly due to their own mistakes. They made the transition only after playing the reliable Penczew from the left flank (18:16). Additionally Wassim Ben Tara used a counter-attack and served as a service ace, thanks to which the locals regained a four-point lead. The visitors made up for some of the losses (20:21), and then took the lead (23:22). After the break taken by Daniel Pliński, Szymański added another ace, and the whole set ended Jakub Jarosz.

From the beginning of the second game there was a balanced fight and the result was close to a draw. The leader changed, but neither team managed to escape their rivals. Only a good block Marcin Kania and crossing the line of the third metro by Wassim Ben Tara made it 6: 9. The time taken by coach Pliński brought the expected effect, because his charges blocked Jakub Jarosz, and in addition, Kamil Kwasowski had a great part of the game and it was after 10. The draw did not last long because Ben Tar missed. The hosts were one step behind their rivals all the time and after Jarosz used a counterattack and an ace was sent by the attacking team from Katowice, the guests had four “eyes” advantage. In the final fragment, the GKS team once again showed a good service, which was decided by the fate of the first game. The visitors did not give up the advantage and after hitting Jarosz diagonally, they finished the second set with the result of 25:21.

The locals did not intend to give up, the more that they played a good match. After Wassim’s service ace, Ben Tary was leading 5: 3, and when an effective block was added Mitchell Stahl – 10: 7. The American did not play the best match, but in this fragment it was his attack and service that allowed the volleyball players from Nysa to increase their lead. The inhabitants of Katowice began to make more and more mistakes. After playing the block-cars by Nikolai Penchev, it was 13: 8, but Gieksa’s players scored another three points and the advantage decreased to two “points”. Nevertheless, the game of visitors broke down a bit in each element and it immediately translated into the result. After using the counterattack by Kamil Kwasowski the locals escaped their rivals by five points and everything indicated that they would extend the fate of this rivalry. They played well and definitely dominated this party. The game was played point for point and the set ended with a short play with Moustapha M`Baye.

The Stal players started the set with a three-point lead, which was largely due to Micah Ma, in whose play there were a lot of inaccuracies. The guests quickly equalized. After Jakub Jarosz was blocked and Nikolai Penczew used a counterattack, the scoreboard was 10: 7. The leader of the locals was Wassim Ben Tara, who at decisive moments took the weight of the attack on his shoulders. Nevertheless, in the middle of the set, most of the balls went to Kamil Kwasowski, who finished whatever he got (17:12). Jakub Nowosielski appeared on the pitch, but the advantage of the locals was already clear and hard to make up for. Mitchell Stahl’s next service ace in this match seemed to decide the fate of this game, as the players from Nysa had as many as six “points” more. Their game was getting more and more heated with each action, and the competitive GKS clearly went out. Pliński’s players played the game brilliantly. Kiwek Kwasowski for the block and a good block by Moustaph M`Baye ended this game, thus leading to a tie-break.

He remained on the field Gonzalo Quiroga, who sent a service ace at the beginning of the fifth game. Because blocking Wassim Ben Tara and another good play from the Argentine, it was already 5: 0. The disastrous beginning of the volleyball players from Nysa immediately put them in a difficult situation. They started to make up for losses thanks to a good block. When switching sides it was 8: 4 for the visitors, and after Ben Tara broke off the attack – 9: 4. The impressive “cap” of Piotr Hain on the Moustaph M`Baye seemed to be decisive for this competition. At the end of the set, Ma began boldly launching the midrange, which surprised his rivals. After playing Jakub Jarosz obliquely, the inhabitants of Katowice had five matches. They used the second and after an interesting match won 3-2, thanks to which they can add another two points to the PlusLiga league table.
