Beijing Sport University have on Saturday evening in Zagreb failed to stun favored Motor Zaporozhye in what was the final Group Phase match for the Chinese rookies. In the end 23:30 which means BSU will remain the only team which has not managed to secure a single point in this season's SEHA - Gazprom League.
Considering the fact however that they have in Zaporozhye suffered a really tough defeat, it is obvious they once again showcased how much they've managed to progress as a team in only half a season. Unfortunately for them, unlike in their last match against Nexe when they were throughout the first 30 able to stay close, this time the deal was fully sealed in the first half with guests opening the gap to nine goals (10:19).
After that, second half was nothing but a routine for Ukrainians who have allowed hosts to cut into their lead a bit but certainly not enough to fully endanger them.
Key factor in today's match was Eduard Kravchenko and his unbelievable ten goals from just as much attempts. And when we add that Gennadiy Komok stopped 12 shots saving almost 50 percent of the shots it becomes clear how dominant Ukrainians actually were on Saturday evening in Zagreb.
Xiaoqi Wang netted five for hosts but it was not enough for them to endanger Motor in this one.
BSU will this way finish the Group Phase on bottom of their group while Motor remain second booking a direct quarter-finals ticket for themselves.
