The second stage of the Cup of Russia in the SFD and the NCFD in Rostov-on-Don – by Team B.O.L.T.
“At the entrance to the venue of the tournament, we felt the excitement.
Already at the entrance to the Rostov city I felt the energy. In the first stage in Pyatigorsk we offensively lost one game and ended up third. But we knew that, thanks to persistent trainings, we are in great shape and can show a much better game and avoid repeating mistakes.
In our division we were first to play, and unfortunately, did not have time to explore the field. The first game showed that knowledge of the area gives a great advantage. Each point for us ended up with a low wing found himself naked, and we could not turn the game around.
In the break between the first and the second game was a technical pause when we have the opportunity to disassemble the playground. After that, things went smoothly.
The second game, B.O.L.T. vs Absinthe, ended 3-0 in our favor.
After winning the second game, and having regained confidence, we began to experiment. We changed the flanks, attacked aggressively, played through the center and eventually advanced to the semifinals with a first place in the group. In the semifinals, we met with the team which in the previous step for us was fatal. Banda team was one of the most experienced teams in this stage. But we do know that our goal is victory, and in the end, showing the aggressive play were able to reach the final. 3:1 The gang was moving on.
In the final, we met with a young team of Krasnodar – Stalker. The guys fought with dignity, but we were better prepared. 2:1 and the Goblet of this step we have taken to Krasnodar.”
With this victory, we came in first place overall in its division.
