But on the eleventh minute output of the gate of Eugen Korochansky – and the ball in the gates. The first half was 1:0 in favor of the College of LNU.

The second half began with IPES attack, and Serhii Hurda completed it with accurate shot from midfield and the balance restored. It was the impression that young people “wavered”. Within three minutes students of Physical Education were able to send the ball into the rival’s gate several times. The final blows of Artem Skachkov, Mikhaylo Nosal, Maksym Reshetnyak were beat by the goalkeeper Maksym Popov or flew off target.

Withstanding the onslaught, the College players began to play so fast and sure that more experienced players confused and within seven minutes missed five goals in the gate, losing with a score of 6:1.
