KIELCE IN CRISIS: Dunkerque beat Polish champions!

After an awful performance, Vive Targi Kielce were beaten by Dunkerque HB Grand Littoral 25:30. Kielce began quite well as they gained a few goal advantage. Dunkerque could not figure out Polish defence plus there was also Sławomir Szmal who saved a couple of shots. Then Polish champions slowed down. They wasted a number of good chances to score (i.e. missed penalty shot) and the french team caught up with their opponent. The referees stopped having the situation well in hands for a moment and started making mistakes. Last minutes of the first half were great for Kielce who, paradoxically, played with one player on the bench. They left the court with 3 goal distance and with a hope for a good performance in the second half. And in fact, it did not start bad – the distance started getting bigger and when there were excellent chances to make it 5 goals, they were wasted.

This was the moment when the catastrophe started approaching. First Dunkerque made the result a draw and then it was just a show of Kielce’s incapacity. Not even one element worked well. It did not change until the very end and therefore Vive lost by 5 goals, having made a very bad impression. Thus Kielce also wasted an unexpected gift from Porto as they beat KIF Kolding 27:24 .
