Miskolc ends Eger’s winning streak

Miskolci water polo club has stopped Eger’s winning streak in the Hungarian championship which has been going since the start of the season. So, it was a fair draw 8:8 at Miskolc swimming pool in the Round 13 and this result gives OSC a chance to fight for the first place in the B group.

It was an exciting match in Miskolc with both teams concentrated on the defense. It was a home team that more often had a lead in this game. Two minutes and five seconds before the end Alex Bowen gave Eger an 8:7 lead.

It seemed that maybe the time has finally come for Eger to lose a game, but Gergo Kovacs equalized a minute and 20 seconds before the final whistle so the visitors remained undefeated.

OSC didn’t have this kind of problems at all because they won 13:4 at the swimming pool of the worst team in the league – Szeged. This game was over already at the halftime when the Budapest team had an eight goals lead (9:1). Balazs Erdelyi was the best scorer of the game with a hattrick.

The leader of the A group, Szolnok water polo club had to fight hard to earn a victory in Budapest against BVSC – 10:9. The home team played a really good game and was constantly one goal up since the middle of the second quarter.

However, Szolnok showed that possesses a real champion character and didn’t let BVSC close the game. And two seconds before the end of the third quarter Szolnok finally got a 9:8 lead thanks to a goal from Andrija Prlainovic. When Gergo Zalanki gave the visitors a two goals advantage four minutes before the end, Szolnok definitely opened a door to a victory.

After a win against BVSC in midweek, Ferencvaros water polo club recorded a victory in another Budapest derby. This time it was away against Vasas – 17:4.

Fradi opened a game with a comfortable 4:0 lead so it was just a matter of time when they are going to get a double-figure lead. Denes Varga was especially good with four goals, while Krisztian Manhercz scored four.
