Poland: Stal Nysa stage huge upset by beating Jastrzębski, Gdańsk down Bełchatów

2 min read

Stal Nysa staged a huge upset in Round 20 of the 2020/21 Polish Plusliga regular season.
After downing PGE Skra Bełchatów earlier, newcomers beat Jastrzębski Węgiel by a 3-1 (18:25, 25:18, 25:18, 25:23), ending the rival’s winning streak that consisted of five games.
Three points scored against the vice-leaders brought the team coached by Krzysztof Stelmach closer to securing their survival in the competition. This was the first duel between these two teams since 2005, given that Stal Nysa hasn’t been a member of the Polish club elite since then. Tunisian Wassim Ben Tara top-scored the winners with 20 points, while Łukasz Łapszyński made 4 blocks.

In a match filled with emotions, Trefl Gdańsk prevailed over PGE Skra Bełchatów in four sets. For the first time ever in the Polish top division, Mariusz Wlazły played against Belchatow, his former team for which he competed for 17 years. Before the match, an amazing ceremony took place: officials of the club from Bełchatów handed gifts to Wlazły, while his jersey No. 2 was raised under the roof of the Skra hall and will be retired from now on.
Bartłomiej Lipiński highlighted the winners, who got tied with Jastrzębski at 36 points, scoring 24 points and 5 blocks.
