"Star of Yugra" did something, what she should have - took four home victories over not the strongest opponents, Zenit-UOR from Kazan and ASK-2 from Nizhny Novgorod. Difficulties happened in the first match, where the young people of Surgut were inferior to the Volzhans 1:2 by sets, but in the end, the class still affected - if I may say so about the play of youth teams. Labor victory 3:2 didn’t just instill confidence, and showed, what happens when an opponent is underestimated.
In the future, there were no special problems on the site: guys a year or two younger play in the Kazan club, their time has not come yet, although the talent of individual players is visible to the naked eye. Their "Star of Yugra" beat them twice without problems, as well as did not experience difficulties in a second meeting with "ASK-2".
The importance of the last tour is confirmed by the fact, that all the players of Zvezda Ugra, claimed for "Gazprom-Yugra" (Kirillov, Slobodyanyuk, Voronchikhin, Teenihin) remained in Surgut, the main team spent the trip to Ufa without them. As a result, ours secured the fifth place in the standings, having created a reserve of five victories before the sixth Kuzbass-2. Thus, Kemerovo residents, even theoretically, will not be able to bypass us, although we are doing the last tour in Kemerovo, where in addition to "Kuzbass-2" we will play with the Novosibirsk "Lokomotiv-SSHOR". With which we can just compete for higher positions in the final bullet of the six best teams of the Youth League.
Anyway, it was in Surgut that "Star of Yugra" completed the task ahead of schedule - at least for the season - got into the final six. The leaders of the Surgut youth team are already quite boldly knocking on the doors of the Super League, so this season may be their last chance to win something serious at youth level. But while there is still a tour to Kemerovo ahead, starting 11 february: we will see, with what attitude the team will approach it.
