EKSTRALIGA: Wroclaw win league in 2021

Final 2 #WROLUB

Sparta Wroclaw were the favourites coming into tonight's second final at their home track against a Motor Lublin side that had forced a 45:45 draw in the last heat in Lublin on Thursday.

The visitors were again without Grigory Laguta and raced with Rider's Replacement for the Russian.

A brilliant match saw Lublin appear to just have the edge over the home side in the first half of the contest. They took the lead three times only to see the home side fight back and draw level.

Mikkel Michelsen (13) and Dominik Kubera (10+2), who both took seven heats each, who again lead out Lublin with great performances.

But the descive heats of the match were the last three before the nominations.

Wroclaw won three heat advantages in a row as Gleb Chegunov (4), Artem Laguta (pictured) and Daniel Bewley (10) all won Heats 11-13 respectively to take a 43:35 lead - enough to win the championship with two heats to spare. It was younger of the Laguta brothers, who currently leads the World Championship, who top scored for his side with 13 pts. He won his first four heats only dropping points after the title was secured, more than making up for a poor performance in Lublin on Thursday.

The match finished 50:40 to Sparta and the club has won the league for the the first time for 15 years, whilst for Lublin it was their first medal for 30 years.
