In the third round of the National Cup a quick visit to the Midlands saw Northampton Polish Crew host IBB Polonia London and succumb to the strong visitors in three sets.
In the previous round on the 8th October, IBB Polonia London quickly beat Coventry and Warwick Riga to make it through to the current stage.
Last Saturday IBB Polonia made the short drive north to take on a new group of predominantly Polish players living in England. The first set was quite close; in typical form a team from a lower division gives their maximum in the hopes of a shock start to the match. Greater control and experience allowed IBB Polonia to get their noses across the finishing line first ahead of „The Crew” 20-25. The second and third sets were much more routine ending 12-25 and 11-25 and this secured progress to the next round.
We thank Northampton Polish Club for their warm welcome in Daventry leisure Centre. The next match is against Durham Palatinates and takes place on 19th November at 2.45pm in the Sport and Wellbeing Centre in Durham.
