Both teams approach the face-to-face confrontation in a good mood and with victories under their belt. In their previous matches, the Kremenchuk and Kyiv players defeated the «Kharkiv Berserks» with the same difference in the score – +9 (12:3 and 11:2, respectively). So who will be delegated to the final from group B will be decided tonight.
The host team of the upcoming match and the whole tournament does not need a special introduction. The representatives of Poltava region are the current vice-champions of the country. Before the start of the season, changes took place at the Kremenchuk coaching staff. The team was headed by Dmytro Sumets, who replaced Oleksandr Savytskyi in this position. The specialist had a good start, but, of course, the ambitions of the hockey players from Kremenchuk are connected only with the final.
Vadym Shakhraichuk was also satisfied with the actions of his team in the comments following the meeting with «Kharkiv Berserks». According to the mentor, his wards approached the first match, but they understood that the tournament prospects would be decided in Friday’s meeting. Undoubtedly, after a bright start, the Kyivans do not plan to slow down.
For four «Capitals» hockey players, this match will be a meeting with the former team. We are talking about Valentyn Sirchenko, Kyrylo Bondarenko, Mykola Dvornyk and Mykyta Oliynyk, who at one time managed to play for «Kremenchuk».
As for the scorers of the teams, we should mention Yaroslav Panchenko in the «Capitals», who scored a poker goal, and among the «Kremenchuk» team, three hockey players immediately scored doubles. Among them: Hlіb Varava, Bohdan Serednytskyi and Vitalіy Lyalka.
So, there are a lot of intrigues before the first face-to-face match between the teams. Soon we will find out who will be the winner.
