AN EASY VICTORY FOR HC METALURG’S YOUTH TEAM
The match between the youth teams of HC Metalurg and RK Tinex Prolet should have been a derby, especially because our team won with a minimal advantage on the previous match, 18:16. But on today’s match, our youth team was completely dominant and was leading throughout the whole 60 minutes.
We took the lead with 3:0, and towards the middle of the first half we had an advantage of three goals, 5:2. We played masterfully in the next 15 minutes. Excellent in the attacks and the defense, our players completely outplayed the opponent and went on a half-time break with an advantage of eight goals, 15:7.
We kept the same rhythm in the second half, so in the 48-th minute we had the highest advantage of +11, 23:12. When everyone expected that the guest team was about to face a real catastrophe, our players, convinced that the victory was in their hands, relaxed a bit and played terribly in the following ten minutes, allowing the opponent to make a series of 7:3 and to win the second half with a result 12:10.
It should be noted that we played excellently even with a player less on the court. We found ourselves four times in this situation and scored six goals.
