Crucial games of the Moscow ball-hockey championship took place on the 30th of July in the playground of Plekhanov Russian University of Economics. Three much-fancied teams having confidently beaten other opponents determined standings. The team named “Hermes” managed to beat the team called “Wolves” in a rivalry game, when they were down 1-4, but tipped the scales in their favor and performed incredible comeback. The result: 7-5 in favor of Hermes. Aerofuels, having shown well-cooperated and scoring play, having lost not a single point in the games, won deservedly the first Moscow championship. The most experience Wolves kept the second place and Hermes – the third place.
The next step in the national ball-hockey development will be the Russian championship planned for September. We do hope our team will keep its leadership in this competition as well.
