Impressive victory of FutureNet Imperium Katowice!

It was not just a victory, it's a real crush! FutureNet Imperium Katowice defeated KS Otmęt Krapkowice 29:10. Thanks to this win, the team from Katowice jumped into the second place in table of women's handball first league in Poland. KS Otmęt Krapkowice came to Katowice as the last team in the league, without a victory in three matches. On the other hand, FutureNet Imperium previously proved its groving shape - especially by winning in Gliwiach with SPR Sośnica, one of the favorites of the entire league. So it was easy to predict that the team from Katowice will probably win this match. There were no surprises. FutureNet Imperium Katowice left no hope for its rivals. From the beginning of the match the hosts dominated on the pitch, having an advantage in every aspect of the game. Until the break, FutureNet Imperium Katowice led 14:6. It was clear that only a miracle could help the guests' players. But miracles do not happen, so after the break the hosts dominated even more. Eventually, FutureNet Imperium Katowice outclassed KS Otmęt Krapkowice 29:10!

FutureNet Imperium Katowice will jump into the league’s podium?

After three series of games in Polish first league of women handball, it’s very tight at top of the table. Several teams have 6 points and if they win in the upcoming round, they may jump into higher place. And it opens a big chance for FutureNet Imperium Katowice. Before the next match, our team has 6 points and before round 4 of games holds 5th place in league’s table. What’s the most important is that FutureNet Imperium Katowice trails with just 3 points to the leader, SPR JKS Jarosław. So the picture is clear: if FutureNet win its next game, it may upgrade its position in the league. But there’s one and obvious condition: win with KS Otmęt Krapkowice. The next rival of FutureNet Imperium Katowice had a bad start of the season. Three games, three loses, 102 goals lost and last place in the league… It’s not the beginning which was expected by players and staff of the club from Krapkowice. In Katowice, KS Otmęt will try to break its weak series. But FutureNet Imperium Katowice proved its growing form with convincing and remarkable win win SPR Sośnica Gliwice on its playground. That’s why any result other than win of FutureNet Imperium will be a big surprise.
