The opening ceremony gathered all teams proudly presenting their national jerseys. The happiness and excitement of the first day were electrifying. Anyone who visited the Olympic Stadium today could see how happy and energized were these young athletes.
The opening game between Poland and Czech U20 presented us with a quite a spectacle. Both teams put their hearts into the game showed some skill. Even some senior players could envy them for such ease in making daring D’s! The game progressed with team Poland in an advantageous situation. For the majority of the game, they lead with a 4 to 5 point difference.
During the second half, the Czech had a breakthrough. From the steady catch up, they broke into quite a chase! Their game started to be more confident. With a few spectacular D’s and fast, thought through offensive points they almost caught up with Poland. The ending brought quite a few heart attack for the polish fans cheering at the Olympic Stadium. During the match, the other Czech divisions cheered for their team, which certainly paid off on the field! In the end, team Poland managed to score the 15th point which ended the opening game.
We’re looking forward to more daring games like this one in the upcoming days. The youth teams show so much skill, which is a great promise for the championships soon.
