Poland: Without captain and head coach, Gda艅sk lose from Be艂chat贸w. COVID-19 postpones 5 games

PGE Skra Be艂chat贸w prevailed over Trefl Gda艅sk in Round 7 of the 2020/21 Polish volleyball Championship more difficult than expected.
In the big match of the day, Gda艅sk had to deal with the rivals without captain Mariusz Wlaz艂y and head coach Micha艂 Winiarski due to coronavirus. The latter was replaced by his assistant, Italian Roberto Rotari. However, Winiarski was in constant contact with his staff over the phone during the match and commanded the team that way.
Gda艅sk fought hard, but it was only enough to win one set and 3-1 is the final score (23:25, 25:23, 25:20, 25:15). Thus, Be艂chat贸w continued dominating over the rivals in the league: the last time Gda艅sk defeated these opponents was four and a half years ago!
Norbert Huber was the top scorer for the winners with 15 points, while Kewin Sasak scored the same number of points for Gda艅sk.
As many as five games of this round were postponed due to coronavirus cases.
