Match KS Pałac Bydgoszcz – Polski Cukier Muszynianka Fakro Bank BPS Muszyna is postponed and it’ll be played at 21st December. Because of that fact I won’t give you this time line-up of best players because not all teams played in this round.

I mentioned that Impel was the busiest team, playing to games throughout weekend, it means that we had one more game, but from 12th Round:

KS Pałac Bydgoszcz – Impel Wrocław 0-3 (17-25 17-25 18-25) MVP: Frauke Dirickx

Pałac: Savochkina, Korabiec, Naczk (5), Kaliszuk (17), Dybek (3), Połeć (4), Wysocka (L) and Biedziak, Twardowska (7), Karczmarzewska-Pura (6), Głaz (1), Fojucik
Impel: Dirickx (3), Brinker (13), Kąkolewska (5), Kaczor (14), Pyziołek (13), Wilson (7), Medyńska (L) and Gryka

Some transfer news:

Because of injury of middle-blocker Ewelina Janicka, Pałac Bydgoszcz added to senior team, MB/OH Weronika Fojucik from junior Pałac team. On official league’s website in Pałac team appeared also another MB, Małgorzata Skorupa. Kasia’s (from Rabita Baku) twin sister may also join Pałac, but it’s still not confirmed by club.

Polski Cukier Muszynianka Fakro Bank BPS Muszyna finally found 12th player. Last women, who joined to team is Slovenian, Marina Cvetanovic. She can play both as opposite and outside hitter, at the beginning of this season she played in Romanian Stiinta Bacau.

Atom Trefl Sopot signed contract with third setter. New player became Serbian, Bojana Radulovic. She spent last season in Russian Yenisey Krasnoyarsk. About 10 years ago Bojana was a player of BKS Bielsko-Biała.
I think about it as a kind of weird decision, Atom had two setters, maybe coach Teun Buijs doesn’t want to take risk, giving chance for youngster Natalia Gajewska, who now became third. I think that Atom rather should consider finding a better opposite, because Anna Podolec still is not playing well after serious injuries and Judith Pietersen is one of the biggest league disappointments.

League Standings: Impel played one match more, while Muszynianka one less.
