In the return match of the Polish League play-offs, Vive Targi Kielce beat at home Piotrkowianin Piotrków Trybunalski 36:24. The first game was won by Kielce 45:25 so the return match seemed to be just a mere formality. The hosts began confidently, leading 3:0, and were leading until the very end. It was not the best game of Kielce’s offence, while both goalkeepers, Venio Losert and Sławomir Szmal, gave quite good performances. Polish Champions could allow themselves to pull in their horns a bit having encounters against Metalurg Skopje for the Champions League Final Four in prospect. Nevertheless, Kielce won grandly and has reached play-off semi-finals. The top scorers for Kielce were Croats: Ivan Čupić, Manuel Štrlek and Željko Musa (5).
