ARKA GDYNIA LIFTS POLISH SUPERCUP

Friday, July 28th, 2017

Arka Gdynia are set to begin the new season on a good note after they defeated Legia Warszawa in the Polish Super Cup.


The Yellow and Bluesdefeated their opponents through a penalty shootout after 90 minutes of regular play. The rule in the Polish Super Cup does not allow extra time so a shootout had to happen as the game could not be resolved beyond the 1-1 tie.

Arka took the game to the Polish champs from the start. Patryk Kun went close in the 7th minute but his header was off the mark. The champs came all out minutes later but Moulin’s effort was blocked.

Arka eventually scored the opener in the 20th minute. GrzegorzPiesio made his way to the box of Legia then he sent a cross that Michal Pazdan tried to block but he eventually deflected the ball to the net to send Arka up. (more…)
