First victory!

"Gazprom-Ugra" (Surgut): Ozhiganov - Shakhbanmirzaev, Katich - Korotaev, Krsmanovych - Tarasenko, Obmochaev

"Dinamo-LO" (Serebryany Bor): Tyushkevich – Pirainen, Biryukov - Ivovich, Kayumov - Dovgan, Shishkin

Rivals at the start, periodically exchanging breaks, got to the balance 10:10, after which the Surgut team went into the lead: Krsmanovic starred, Korotaev scored an ace, and after the block, Radjab converted Biryukov to the final game, 13:10. Then the diagonal Surgut player forced the opponent to throw the ball out of the playing area with a crazy powerful serve, 16:12. Sosnovoborets' time-out did not improve the situation: another powerful serve from Radjab and Ivovic sends the ball into touch, and the gap in the score reaches five points.

The guests' chase began with a video of Artem Dovgan's attack: the ball went out of bounds along the rope, hitting the blocker's hand, 20:17. Immediately Litvinenko, who came out to serve, earns an ace, another serve through the rope knocks down the receivers - and a clear implementation of the final game by Biryukov, 20:19. Dynamo-LO got a block, Katic makes a mistake in the attack and gives way to Krasikov, and the bill is already in favor of the guests, 21:22.

The following video review works in favor of Gazprom-Yugra: the picture clearly captures the touch on the block by Ivovic after Radjab’s attack into touch, 22:22. Young Kirillov comes out to serve and calmly places the ball in line, 23:22. Another excellent serve with an unwavering hand - and Rajab hammers in the final ball. Dovgan got even on the set point and Klimkin released the famous ace master Todor Skrimov to serve. But Obmochaev accepts it very well, and Rajab wins a set for his team on the second try.

At the start of the second game, the Surgut team did not convert three (!) frivolity, miss an ace from Biryukov, but they don’t let the opponent go far. Ozhiganov blocks the Dynamo-LO captain with a block, 8:8. Another case for Biryukov, 10:10. Denis is not doing well on the grid, but everything is fine with the presentation, another ace for execution, 13:13. The teams enter the end with the guests' advantage by one break ball, but Ozhiganov’s serve and Rajab’s attacks tip the balance with 17:19 on 20:19. Korotaev deprives guests of reception, and Rajab is again good at finishing the game, 22:20. Pirainen knocks on the block, bringing the hosts three set points, 24:21. Two guests played on Skrimov's serves, but Rajab Shakhbanmirzaev showed himself excellently on the flag again, 25:23.

For the third set, the Dynamo-LO coaching staff releases Skrimov instead of Ivovich and Litvinenko instead of Pirainen. Guests take risks on serve, which brings certain dividends. Vadim Ozhiganov relieved Radjab in attack - but Katic and Tarasenko are not so good (the latter is replaced by Shevlyakov). Litvinenko punishes twice, 7:10. Gazprom-Yugra is plastered in defense, and Rajab returns parity (10:10) which holds up to the mark 16:16. The balance is disrupted by Litvinenko's attack into touch, 18:16. Next break at the mark 22:19 Korotaev gets a discount on the hands of those blocking the antenna. In the end, the guests take maximum risks on serve and often make mistakes, and the block almost brings the Surgut team comfort to finish the match, 23:20 doesn't look thin 24:20 .

Once again the visitors had Screamov on serve at the end – and again Obmochaev did an excellent job with a powerful shot. But Katic's attack is incomprehensible, and in response, Litvinenko pushes through Milan’s block and Obmochaev’s next selfless throw does not help, 23:22. The outcome of the match was decided by two mistakes by Dynamo-LO: first Skrimov served out, and then Dovgan hit the net.

Yaroslav Vasylenko, head coach of Dinamo-LO: The Surgut team played the game more smoothly. Unfortunately, we made unforced errors at the end of each game, made the wrong decisions and it resulted in 0:3. At the end of the first set they missed an optional ace during the score 22:22. In the middle of the second set they allowed the score to be leveled. Surgut is an emotional team, especially since I played at home, with your fans. Got caught, felt, that they could beat us and took advantage of this opportunity. Well done Rajab, gave us a lot of problems today. The Surgut team looked decent, that's why they won today. We've been traveling around Siberia for a week now., flew here from Krasnoyarsk. But I don’t want to complain about it, are to blame. As far as I can see, This season looks like a very even championship. I think, there will be a lot of games like this, you have to fight everyone. So I don't think, that some sensation happened today, Surgut has a good team and they deservedly won.

Captain of the Gazprom-Ugra VC Milan Katic: A very important victory, first in the Super League. Sure, After the game in Urengoy it was very important to play the next match with quality and focus. We played like that from the first ball. The opponent gave us a very difficult life in the reception, but we played calmly and smartly. The third party was very important, because in that season too, and in this, when we lead 2:0, we then lose the quality of the game. Losing the set, and then the fifth batch is already nearby. It's always better to finish in three sets. Thank you to the fans! hope, there will be even more of them for the next match.

Senior coach of VC "Gazprom-Yugra" Denys Harkushenko: Thank you very much to the fans! Today the hall was almost full and, basically, thanks to them we won today. We gave it our all. We purposefully prepared, dismantled the opponent, the guys maintained their concentration and completed the installation. I don't want to praise Rajab personally, because the whole team won. He showed good numbers, Yes, but the guys took the heavy serve, the passer passed well - everything is interconnected. He wasn't the only one who won, although he's great, showed a very good game today.
