Once again IBB Polonia London proved too strong for Solent. Sunday 22nd January 2017 the team from London travelled to Southampton and won 0:3 (22:25, 17:25, 18:25) and returned to the capital with another three points.
– We had total control of the game today. We had the luxury of allowing each player to play and played with confidence, which is pleasing leading up to the next European Challenge event and Cup match in England. The festive break caused some changes to the league table with every club in the top section losing points except us. This is obviously a positive sign for us, that we managed to maintain our form. – commented Piotr Graban Head Coach for IBB Polonia London.
