LEN Champions League 2014-2015 Qualification round 1: OSC tops Radnicki - day 1 and 2

Qualification round
26-28 September, 2014

The second day of the Champions League first qualification round, in group A in Marseille, started with an interesting match-up where OSC added a nice three points after their 9-9 draw with Spartak Volgograd on Thursday by beating 2012 Euro Cup winners and last year's Champions League finalist Radnicki 4-8. The Serbs actually started off great and took a 3-1 lead at quarter-time before the match turned around completely. A 0-3 run by the Hungarians, led by Joseph Kayes (3) and Gabor Kovacs (2 goals) saw the momentum switching and the Serbs were unable to get it back. After a levelled 1-1 third-period, OSC dominated the final eight minutes scoring three more goals as they won it by four and now convincingly can look forward to the big match-up with Posillipo on Friday evening. In group B the Romanians and French champions drew level in the early session opening match. For the French it meant the first point after their 12-9 loss to Hannover yesterday while Oradea picked up their second. But the French might had hoped for more. A 0-2 second-quarter performance had them up 2-3 at half-time and maintaining the lead in the third term. Oradea, thanks to goals from Serbian duo Vojislav Cupic and Milos Korolija pulled back a goal, and that was just enough to force the tie and pick up a second point in group B so far. Hosts Jadran were unable to reboud from their opening day draw against Oradea as the local heroes fell to Russian runners-up Sintez Kazan, 6-8, where Russia top scorer at the Budapest 2014 European champs, Konstantin Stepanyuk, led the way with two goals. Jadran centre-forward Boris Zlokovic, who was held scoreless in yesterday's match, was top scorer for the home side netting two as well.
