Plenty of Draws in October, Looking Forward to November



The Hungarian Championship started last month and I returned to play with Kaposvar. Our first three games were all fought hard and competitive, but all three ended in ties, putting us 9th on the table with 3 points.


Below is a brief recap of the games as well as the current league table:


Szeged – Kaposvar 10:10 (1:2, 3:5,2:1, 4:2)

Szeged: Kürti 4, Leinweber 2, Pörge 2, Bóbis 1, Lakatos 1.

Kaposvar: Szatmari 3, Horvath 2, Vindisch 1, Takács 1, Juhasz-Szelei 1, Petrovski 1, Langiewicz 1.


In the first match of the championship Kaposvar led 7:4 at halftime, but in the second half Szeged made a comeback. Late in the game Szeged took a 10:9 lead with 39 seconds left on the clock. János Takács scored an equalizer for Kaposvar two seconds from the end, and the match ended without a winner.


Kaposvar – UVSE 11:11 (1:4, 6:4, 3:2, 1:1)

Kaposvar: Vindisch 2, J.Berta 2, Juhasz-Szelei 2, Szatmari 2, Petrovski 2, Langiewicz 1.

UVSE: Garancsy 3, Korban 3, A.Szentesi 2, R.Bencz 1, Korbacs 1, K.Tamas 1


Kaposvar and UVSE played an incredibly even match. UVSE got off to a good start and led 4-1 after the opening quarter. Ten goals were scored in the second period, with Kaposvar reducing the deficit, but UVSE held an 8-7 advantage at halftime. Kaposvar opened the second half with two goals to take the lead for the first time (9-8), but before the final period, both teams were tied 10-10. UVSE went ahead 11-10 in the 26th minute before Kaposvar equalized at 11-11 in the 29th minute as the teams ended in a draw.


PVSK Pecs-Kaposvar 7:7 (2:0, 1:2, 2:3, 2:2)

PVSK Pecs: Kereszturi 3, Kolozsi 1, Vogel 1, Nemethy 1, R.Gaszt 1.

Kaposvar: Szatmari 3, Vindish 2, Berta 1, Petrovski 1.


In the middle of the third quarter, Kaposvar led 5:3. Then, early in the fourth, Pecs led the game 6:5. The visitors leveled at 6:6. Still, Pecs earned a one-goal lead again (7:6), but Ferenc Vindisch saved a point for Kaposvar scoring a last-gasp goal with two seconds to go.
