After such a successful beginning the team had to strain itself during the match with Zaporozhye Iron Ore Combine. The rivals tried to play on our half of the field. The temperature was at its pitch when the rival team scored their first goal. Fortunately, it was their last one and our players indemnified their supporters’ stress in full by scoring three goals. ZTMC team won with a score 3 to 1. Unfortunately, our team got the victory at a heavy cost. One of the leading players received the red card and one more player was injured, which became the reason that our team could not play in full force any more.
