After the match said:
Bogdan Wenta (coach Vive) on top of the game, a difficult game for both teams, a lot has happened. In this tragic-looking injury Paczkowski. Mariusz Jurkiewicz played with great determination and made us a lot of problems. I thank the team, they played a good game.
Julen Aguinagalde (line-player Vive) : This was a difficult game for us, the second this week. We were a team and that was the key to victory. Now think about Wednesday’s game, but of course the Sunday meeting is important.
Manuel Cadenas (coach of the Wisla Plock) There were completely two different halves. At first we played well in the second was definitely worse. To win with the team as Vive need to have good health. We prevented a bit of injuries.Paczkowski did not train, he took part in the activities in the past two days. We suspect him to a serious knee injury.
