David Jansik and Prlainovic gave the visitors a lead, but then Ferenc Korbacs equalized 26 seconds before the end of the period.

In the second quarter, minute by minute, Szolnok managed to regain full control of the game. Batori, Zalanki, and Prlainovic all found the net and the visiting team took a 6:3 lead at the halftime.

The home team continued to play bravely and cut the deficit to two goals (7:5) in the third quarter. But UVSE could not do much more in the last period. Jansik, Prlainovic, and Lazic all found the net and Szolnok secured a comfortable win.
