This was the last away match of FutureNet Imperium Katowice this season. Our team didn’t have much to win, but ultimately lost to MKS AZS UMCS Lublin 21:25.
The team from Lublin has its well-deserved place among the top 5 teams in Polish women 1st handball league. That’s why we were expecting a difficult game for our team. And these predictions came true during the Saturday’s game.
The first minutes from the start of this game belonged to MKS AZS. The hosts started with a lot of power and once took the lead 5:1. It worked like a cold shower for our team and FutureNet Imperium started to made up this loss. As a result, the guests reduced its loss to 9:10 and returned into the game. Just before the end of the 1st half, players from Lublin had a few effective offensive actions and went to the locker room for a break leading 13:10. However, it wasn’t a loss which our team couldn’t reduce.
After the break, AZS MKS ran away with goals again. The hosts restored their lead to the level 19:13 and it turned obvious that FutureNet Imperium will have a tough time to grab any points in Lublin. But it had to be pointed out that our players showed a great will to fight, as they reduced its loss to only a single goal (20:21). But the hosts were determined to keep the good score and managed to establish the final result as 25:21.
