“Jurassic Knights” delighted Krakow! Project Warsaw dropped out of the Polish Cup final

Must read

In the second semi-final of the Tauron Polish Cup, the Aluron CMC Warta Zawiercie team defeated Projekt Warszawa with a score of 3–0. This was the performance of Michal Winiarski’s team.

On the weekend of March 2-3, a celebration of Polish club volleyball will take place in Krakow. The Polish Tauron Cup takes place at the local Tauron Arena, one of the largest entertainment and sports facilities of its type in the country. The final tournament featured the following matches: Polish champion Jastrzembski Wegiel with tournament sensation Bogdanka LUK Lublin and the winner of the Challenge Cup 2024 Projekt Warszawa with strong Aluron CMC Warta Zawiercie.

Jurassic Knights played Project Warsaw in Krakow.

In the first match on Saturday, Jastrzembski Wengiel beat Bogdanka LUK Lublin in three sets. However, we must admit that it was not an easy walk for the Polish champions. The Lublin team showed that they can present truly interesting volleyball. However, at key moments, the Plus League leaders and the Champions League semi-finalist increased the pace so much that the opponent was helpless. Norbert Huber was named the most valuable player of the match.

Battle number two had a slightly different course. The Warsaw team, famous for the first success and cup in the club’s history, came to Krakow with hope. However, as it turned out, the Zaverča volleyball players have completely different plans than the capital club. Aluron CMC Warta showed its strength already in the first set, winning it in 24 minutes after a convincing 25:18.

In the second part, the project treated its competitors even more rudely. True, in the end they gained an advantage (26:24), but the Warsaw team can beat themselves because for a long time they maintained a clear advantage of several points. But what’s the point if even with the score 21:18 it wasn’t enough to close the set.

It felt like the project never came to fruition. Bartłomiej Bolądz was exceptionally ineffective, Andrzej Wrona ended the second set with an attack out of bounds, and Artur Szalpuk ended up in the square. And on the other side of the goal, the great Karol Butryn traditionally played his match, Mateusz Bieniek impressed with his performance, and Miguel Tavares, who celebrates his birthday on March 2, made his contribution. And Bartosz Kwolek, who has his own health problems (as does Trevor Kleveno).

Final result? A cold shower for the Project, but not at all how he imagined returning to home field after success in Europe. Yes, this means losing zero.

However, as the competition shows, PlusLiga’s opponents – including in the Polish Cup – do not forgive weak days.

Karol Butrin was named the most valuable player of the match.

Jastrzębski Wegiel – Aluron SMS Warta Zawiercie. Where and when to watch the finale?

The match for the first national volleyball title in 2024 will take place on Sunday (that is, March 3) at the Tauron Arena. Jastrzębski Wengiel will play against Aluron KMS Warta Zawiercie from 14:45.

The match for victory in the 67th Polish Cup will be shown on the Polsat Sport channel. The online broadcast will be available, for example, through the Polsat Box Go platform.

Let us remember that last year Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle unsuccessfully tried to defend the title. However, this year the second-placed Poles failed to reach the quarter-finals, let alone the tournament in Krakow.
