Hungarian Championships: Round 2

After a week free from match-play, the Hungarian Championship will resume this week. Matches for the final four will be played March 15, 17, 19, 21, and 23. REMEMBER: In the final four, you must win 3 matches to advance to the finals. Matches for the consolation bracket (places 5th-8th) will be played March 16, 19, and 22. Here, teams must win 2 matches to advance. Competing in the Final Four will be BSE, Vasas, UTE, and Godollo. Last year's final featured BSE and Godollo, with BSE coming out victorious. In the consolation bracket, you can see NRK Nyiregyhaza, Albrect MVSC MISI, BRSE, and MAV.
During this week, most teams practiced, however 4 teams competed in a single-elimination Hungarian Cup. BSE defeated NRK Nyiregyhaza to advance to the finals, where they would face Godollo. Godollo defeated Vasas--Vasas defeated NRK in the 3rd place match. BSE won this match in 4. It is possible that these same two teams will meet up in the Hungarian championship finals, which I know everyone will be eager to see.

Our first match will be played in Shaky-shaky-feyhava against MAV, before we will return home to Bekescsaba to play them again on Saturday of this week. After splitting with MAV earlier this season, we are looking forward to getting a chance to play them again. Look for more Hun-Volley updates as this week progresses.
