Еasy win

The champion of Ukraine – Zaporizhzhya “MOTOR” – once again demonstrated his skills on the home site, bringing to the “asset” the third consecutive victory in Group A of the SEHA League. This time, the team of Beijing Sports University was defeated.

Despite the fact that the guests tried to work in defense, they did not use good moments that could turn into goals. The fighters of Nikolai Stepants, in turn, maximally benefited from the situation. After 7 minutes, the “engine builders” were already 4 goals (5: 1). The goal advantage gave an additional incentive to the leader of the Ukrainian championship, who rapidly continued to “turn” the numbers on the scoreboard (11: 3, 19: 4). The magnificent Gennady Komok was one of the key creators of motor success in the first half of the game. 10 saves of Komka allowed field players to feel quite comfortable on the site in the first half and create an extremely comfortable reserve by the end of it – 23: 4.

The fact that Vlado Shola’s wards realized only 4 chances in the first thirty minutes, deprived the representatives of Beijing of any theoretical ability to make a comeback in the second half. The advantage in favor of the Ukrainian titans, in the camp of which there was a number of main figures: Aidenas Malashinskas, Boris Pukhovsky, Zakhar Denisov, Dmitry Doroshchuk, Dener Jaanimaa – was steadily increasing. In general, motors showed a traditionally high level of handball. Reliably played in defense and effectively – in attack. Both goalkeepers (in the second half of the match Viktor Kireev took up the post) did the job “excellent”, which was clearly annoyed by the rivals. At the forefront of the attack of the Ukrainian top squad was Alexander Kasai, who 12 times hit the frame of the Chinese team (the latter, by the way, managed to defend all 3 goalkeepers one by one). The Chinese opponent, led by the legendary Croatian ex-goalkeeper, tried to beat one on one, use 3 on 3 defense and tactics of individual custody. Although the result was not in favor of the Chinese team – 41:19, it is certainly nice to see that the Celestial Empire has taken the path of developing the hand ball.

Already on September 29, Motors will host the home game of the VELUX EHF Champions League against the current champion of the competition – the Macedonian “Vardar”. The starting whistle will be given at 18:00. The next match in the League of Southeastern Europe, the team of Nikolai Stepanets will play on October 1 away from Serbian Vojvodina.
