Poland: ZAKSA no longer undefeated – Resovia stop their winning streak of 27 games!

2 min read

Asseco Resovia Rzeszów inflicted the first defeat to Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, and not only in the 2020/21 Polish Volleyball Championship but in the season overall. In a delayed match of the 10th round of Polish PlusLiga regular season, Resovia (6th in the standings) defeated the reigning champions and also leaders at tie-break, previously dropping 2-0 in sets. Partially, it was 25:19, 25:21, 17:25, 19:25, and 16:14.
Resovia managed to stop the incredible winning streak of ZAKSA, which has started with the first match of the season and consisted of 27 games to today (19 in the league, 2 in the Super Cup, and 6 in the CEV Champions League). However, this doesn’t change the fact that the titleholders are very close to winning the regular season given that they have 11 points more than the closest followers, Jastrzębski Węgiel, and 6 more matches to play. Karol Butryn highlighted Resovia today with 29 points, Slovenian Klemen Čebulj served 5 aces, while Estonian Timo Tammemaa had 4 blocks.

In Round 23, Indykpol AZS Olsztyn stunned 4th-placed Trefl Gdańsk and swept them in straight sets. Damian Schulz scored 16 points, including 4 blocks, on the winning side.
