Game 14

SK Slavia Prague 2 – 6 (1 – 2) WKS Grunwald Poznan
Slavia went ahead in the 5th minute as  Jakub KYNDL  intercepted the ball and glided up the right side, handing it to David VACEK  who had wrong footed the keeper. Grunwald retaliated in the 13th minute via Mateusz POLTASZEWSKI through open play! A very intense 10 minutes and neither side could push ahead, but in the dying seconds of the half Grunwald working the ball up the pitch from the back 2 created enough space for Karol MAJCHRZAK to score.
In the 23rd minute Adrian KROKOSZ  had 2 attempts at flicking from the top of the D, his second successful as Slavia failed to clear. Slavia reduced the scoreline with a close range shot by David VACEK .
A stunning goal from  Szymon HUTEK on the run from a seemingly impossible angle pushed Grunwald’s lead to 2-4. Grunwald extended their lead 2-5 and forced Slavia into a powerplay, but ended up in a 6th goal for Grunwald.
