Poland: Jastrzębski Węgiel at 3 of 3, coronavirus prevents Warszawa and Ślepsk Malow Suwałki to play
Jastrzębski Węgiel joined Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle at the top of the 2020/21 PlusLiga regular season standings as both side now have a 3-0 record!
The team coached by the Australian Luke Reynolds faced MKS Będzin, who turned out to be the resilient rival, on the road in Round 3 and won in four sets, partially 22:25, 25:15, 25:18, and 25:18. Moroccan Mohamed Al Hachdadi was the man of the match with 21 points for Węgiel, while the Frenchman Yacine Louati served 5 aces. Brazilian José Ademar Santana was the only player with a double digit performance in Będzin, with 14 points.
Meanwhile, other two teams had to temporarily withdraw from the competition.
VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa (with 6 cases!) and Ślepsk Malow Suwałki reported having positive cases for coronavirus of some of their players so their encounters against Stal Nysa and Cerrad Enea Czarni Radom respectively didn’t take place. At least one more match of including these two teams that are dealing with the COVID-19 will be postponed….
