The favourites did not disappoint. In two games some tough competitors were eliminated with Honvéd edging Szeged 9-8 in game 2 at home last Tuesday. Miskolc defeated Eger 11-10 at home on Saturday but after the round 1 defeat, it was not enough.
OSC clearly proved too much for BVSC while Szolnok held outsider FTC out of the semi-finals. FTC held the reigning national champions to a 7-7 draw in game 2 but had suffered a clear defeat in Szolnok in the teams’ first quarterfinals meeting earlier.
The draw for the semi-finals match-ups is expected early this week.
